When you’re looking at the different options available for new windows in your home, you may find that you have too many different options to choose from. You can choose from standardised windows—as long as they fit into the space afforded to you—or you can select bespoke windows that can be fitted with all of the different options you want for your home. You can also choose to have your windows made from a variety of different materials. Some of the most common materials for standardised windows include aluminum, unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC), hardwood, and softwood.
Timber is made from softwoods and is used to make some of the highest quality, longest lasting, and most beautiful casements and frames for windows that will not only complement the beauty of your period or modern home but also outlast any storm that may come your way.
Some of the most common and beloved features of timber windows include:
- It is a versatile wood that will work with the weather, even rain, but will not warp or bend as a result of coming into contact with water, or the sun.
- It can be constructed in any size, and in nearly any shape needed to fit the needs of your home.
- Perfect for the construction of flush casements, which help to keep the weather out of your home, and the temperature stable. This, in turn, lowers your utility costs and helps create a comfortable temperature for your home year round.
- Versatile enough to be able to be used in the creation of a variety of different window types, including single pane, double pane, and triple pane windows.
- Strong enough, but pliable enough to be able to be used for the development of fixed windows; side hinge windows, tilt and turn windows, fully reversible windows, and any other type of inwardly or outwardly opening windows you can dream of.
- Can be painted or stained in a wide variety of colours to match colours already in place in your home or to match any new colour scheme you decide upon when redesigning your dream home.
- Keeps the original look and feel of your period home intact, whereas PVC and aluminum frames often give a more modern look and feel to the outside of your home.
