The Best Of Both Worlds: Clad Wood Frames

Clad wood windows and doors combine the warmth and design flexibility of wood windows with the maintenance-free service life of an aluminum outer shell. The top options in our clad wood line are Passive House certified.

In addition to being the highest performing of Zola’s window materials, clad wood offers tremendous design flexibility. Frames can be narrowed to just two inches, and the tactile quality of the crafted wood brings warmth and coziness to clean, modern design. Our clad wood line is also available as curtain wall.

An Experience
You Can Rely On

I’ve been most impressed with our whole Zola experience from sales, ordering and now to delivery and on-site support. Congratulations on assembling such a professional team and making what is typically a complicated and challenging process run so smoothly. As a self-styled ‘window aficionado’ I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.
