Wood Treatments

Wood Windows & Doors
Made to Stand the Test of Time

Wood is the world’s only 100% renewable building material. It’s used in a wide variety of products, including windows and doors, because it’s a safe, sturdy and dependable material and pound for pound, it’s actually stronger than steel.

At Quaker, we know that wood windows and doors are subject to many of the same elements and menaces posed to other wood products. That’s why, long before it ever reaches your home, the radiatta pine we use for our windows and doors is treated and quality checked to meet WDMA (Window & Door Manufacturers Association) hallmark standards, ensuring it the maximum amount of protection and a long, healthy and beautiful life.

The Treatment Process

Continuous innovations are constantly providing enhanced properties and durability for wood found in many windows and doors. Quaker’s supplier of wood uses a procedure called the “Deluge System” to treat their wood stock.

In the Deluge System, the wood is treated with Kop-Coat WoodLife® 111, a unique blend of water repellent and wood preservative ingredients . The treatment penetrates the lumber without altering its appearance. After being treated, the wood is air dried for 7 days. Upon drying, all pieces are checked for quality and WDMA criteria before being shipped to Quaker.

The End Result

Because of this special Kop-Coat WoodLife® 111 application, the wood found in your Quaker wood windows and doors will be in optimum form and appearance when it arrives at your home. Yet, it’s important to keep in mind that this treatment is only the first step toward durability. The wood actually needs more assistance to withstand day-to-day rigors and indoor atmosphere changes.

Your windows and doors must be given proper finishing (painting, staining, varnish coat, etc.) once they have arrived. Non-finished wood windows and doors can become warped, causing issues with not only the wood’s durability, but with the overall operation and performance of these products. Proper finishing, completed correctly, thoroughly and in a timely manner will make your Quaker wood windows and doors a long-lasting part of your home.
