Why Are Timber Windows Increasing In Popularity?
Here in the UK, we have seen a surge in customers investing in timber windows for their home. So why are they increasing in popularity, and should more of us look at taking the plunge?
Benefits Of Timber Windows
As with any type of windows, there will of course be benefits of investing in timber window frames.
- Eco-friendly – with more and more focus on creating eco-friendly solutions and alternatives, not only in the UK but also across the world, more people are making sure when they upgrade their home, they are making conscious choices. Timber frames are bio-degradable, so when they come to the end of their lifespan, they can be recycled rather than ending up in a landfill.
- Energy-efficient – Older timber frames were considered to be less efficient than newer uPVC frames. However, advancements in modern technology and the introduction of triple glazing now means that they are a minimum of A-Rated, making them one of the most efficient options.
- Attractive designs – Many people still prefer the traditional look of wood. While you can get other frames that mimic the appearance of wood, they do not look as good as the real thing. You can also change the colours each time you re-treat your timber should you wish.
- Increased lifespan – uPVC can be impacted by sunlight, which decreases its lifespan, it cannot be treated once it has been damaged to restore it. Whereas timber frames can be protected from the ching weather by keeping up with regular treatments, which also help to revive its appearance.
- Secure – Timber windows are designed and manufactured to sure that they offer an increased level of security. This includes incorporating a laminated pain, and a security receiver with countersunk screws.
