In addition to increased durability, says JELD-WEN, AuraLast™ wood maintains its natural color and beauty, providing home owners with a lower maintenance option for wood exteriors.
More than 75% of today’s wood windows are sold with exterior metal cladding to protect the exposed portion of the window from weathering, says the manufacturer. While this lowers their maintenance, it also means that their color cannot be changed. With AuraLast™, home owners have the option of painting the wood exteriors any color they desire, and as often as they like.
In addition, paints and stains on AuraLast™ wood will match those of untreated wood, says JELD-WEN.
AuraLast™ will be available in other JELD-WEN wood windows and select wood doors in the coming year.
