For many people, nothing can compare with Timber Windows. While it may be true PVC windows require less maintenance, with the right care timber windows can last for decades. We recommend painting timber frames every 6-7 years. This is usually enough to keep them in great condition and ensure their longeivity.
The main determinant of choosing between PVC or timber is usually cost. The economic fact is, it’s difficult to provide wooden frames as cost effectively as PVC manufacturing. This being the case, it’s our belief that if you choose timber over PVC then you want the very best. Therefore, we have sourced a UK based timber window maker who hand-crafts every window to the very highest standards.
Your window starts as a block of wood. After we have surveyed your home, the wood is cut to the bespoke length and then carved to provide ventilation gaps, drainage holes and space for hinges. It’s sanded and assembled in a way that prevents warping or twisting. The glass is then inserted without the need for packing or beading.
The process is a joy to watch and we’re proud to offer the best timber window products for homes in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
You can select any ‘Farrow and Ball’ colour for your windows, which arrive pre-glazed. Unlike a PVC window, our timber windows can be repaired meaning they can last for decades if looked after.
If you live in a conservation area then you may have no choice than to install windows with a timber appearance. If your budget doesn’t allow timber windows, then you may be interested in our Resident 9 alternatives.
BENEFITS OF TIMBER WINDOWS
- Timber Windows are long lasting, if maintained properly. This amounts to painting them every 6-7 years.
- Many people think wooden windows have a beautiful, tactile feel that can’t be matched by PVC or aluminium.
- Every window is made to measure and can be sprayed any RAL (or ‘Farrow & Ball’) colour
- Timber windows are every bit as secure as alternatives, coming with multiple point secure locking systems.
- If damaged, wooden windows can be repaired. The frame can be disassembled and a new part made, rather than replacing the entire window.
