Although it has been a number of years since the name change, The Jeld Wen line of custom and premium wood windows were once built under the Pozzi Window name. With Pozzi’s reputation for a high end quality wood window built in Bend, Oregon combined with Jeld Wen’s constant innovation to improve their product performance, JW windows have become leaders in the custom wood window market.
Although unseen, AuraLast has proven to be a key component of JW’s pine windows and doors. Of course, it is environmentally friendly and more importantly it provides virtually 100% penetration into the wood while other products are merely dip treated. This insures a long lasting barrier against moisture, decay and termites. Their 20 year warranty on this product feature is a testament to this.
We have found this product feature to be extremely beneficial when building in “historical areas” where wood windows are required without any exterior cladding. The AuraLast on the exterior wood insures a built-in extra protection even prior to final painting. The Union Street Building in Nevada City as well as many older remodeled homes in Truckee, Grass Valley and Nevada City have benefited from Jeld Wen wood windows with AuraLast.
Again, a hidden feature of Jeld Wen windows, but an invaluable benefit to you and your client.
