About Wood
Windows & Doors

Zola’s wood windows and doors are available for all types of projects in a wide array of wood species, with Forest Stewardship Council®-certified wood the default option. While the expected life span of a wood window or door can match that of a clad wood window or door, regular maintenance and eventual refinishing is required. As a result, wood framed fenestration is predominantly used in historic renovations where an aluminum outer skin would not be architecturally acceptable.

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.

Meranti

Pine, Finger-Jointed

Finger-jointed pine uses a woodworking joint made of sets of “fingers” cut into two pieces of wood which then interlock.

Fir

One of the world’s best know wood species, Fir is prized for its straight, fine-grained wood.
