Choosing timber windows for your property

Timber windows are an excellent choice for your property when considering looks, performance and longevity. They make a great statement and look very appealing to passers-by. Timber windows can be used in any room in your home as they are made to measure in a range of traditional and contemporary designs. They are available in various shapes and sizes, and there are a number of reasons why you should choose timber windows. Here are just a few:

Appearance

Timber windows are an easy way to add appeal to your home and make it stand out from the many rows of UPVC windows in other homes. They are very versatile and can be decorated over time, changing the colour to match the latest design trends, making them a versatile investment. The timber can even be dual coloured with the colour people see outside being different to the colour that is inside when you enter a room.

Strength and performance

Timber is a popular choice for the savvy homeowner, as it is a natural insulator, which means that in combination with two or three-layered glazing, it can help to keep your home warm. As hot air is kept inside the house and the cold air out, this can even lead to a reduction in energy bills! As timber is naturally strong, it gives more flexibility in window design, allowing for larger openings and custom-made windows to be catered for, which could help more light to enter your property too.

Maintenance

Timber windows usually come with a much longer guarantee than other materials such as UPVC, making them a great investment. Renovation and restoration techniques mean that even if the guarantee has come to an end, the timber can be maintained and repaired without you having to fully replace them. When maintained properly, timber windows can efficiently resist wear and tear and look as fresh as the day they were installed. There has even been evidence to suggest that well-maintained, good quality timber windows can last a century or more!

Environmentally friendly

Timber windows are environmentally friendly to produce, and our windows are always sourced from sustainable forests. The manufacturing process also does not involve harmful toxins, and there is less waste overall. As timber is a natural material, it will have little impact on the environment.

Price

Most people believe that timber windows are simply too expensive, however, this is not true. As timber windows can last up to 60 years and can be maintained and repainted, they actually work out less expensive over their lifespan. As timber is strong in nature, triple glazing is more cost-effective with timber windows than any other materials. They also bring added value to your home and are a worthwhile investment. 

For any homeowner, windows are a huge investment, and there is no better material to invest in then timber. It is aesthetically appealing, gives great performance and lasts longer than any other materials. Why not consider changing your windows to this beautiful, versatile finish.
