About Clad Wood Windows & Doors

Clad wood lines and doors combine the warmth and design flexibility of wood windows with the maintenance-free service life of an aluminum outer shell.

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.

An Experience
You Can Rely On

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.
