People replace their windows and doors for several reason but the (3) most common reasons are deterioration, efficiency and maintenance.  The life expectancy of a typical wood exterior window or door is between 20 to 25 years.  The reason is due to the shortened growing period of lumber, which is commonly referred to as short growth lumber.  This type of lumber is not as stable and has the potential for decay much sooner and is not very stable.  Older wood windows, such as rope-n-pulley units which were constructed in the early 1900’s, were constructed from lumber with a longer growing period, which is commonly referred to as long growth lumber, this type of lumber is very stable and resist decay for a much longer period.  The company sells both Pella and Marvin windows and doors.  Window and door replacements typically do not require any type of permits; however, when a structural modification is required to the home a permit may be required.
