Why choose wooden windows or doors?

The advantages of choosing windows and doors made from real wood are endless. I say this because they are made from a renewable resource, wood is the warmest material available for any home, can be customised to your liking and your taste, can be painted or stained in any colour you like, can be repainted to suit changes to your interior designs whenever you want, is the most energy efficient, offers high security to keep your family safe, adds the most value to any property and the list goes on. Timber is timeless and warm, unlike anything else.

Timber is so bespoke that everyone can have a design they like or anything to match anything that was ever made before. PVC and Aluminium windows all come with fixed profiles and are only cut and joined together by machinery and are all mass produced and are not customisable.

Bespoke wooden windows are touched, crafted, worked on, painted, sanded and hand made every step of the way – to your design and to your taste, for your home.

There is an endless list of advantages of buying timber windows and doors as opposed to Aluminium or PVC plastic.

Nothing else can come close to offer you the warmth, durability, flexibility, energy efficiency or sheer class that high quality timber windows and doors always give. Not to mention the environmental benefits. Nothing else comes close.  

Some things add value to a home or property. Some things do not.

uPVC is not truly bespoke, you can not choose your profiling, or thicknesses or personal customisations. It is mass produced for the masses. Many argue it needs less maintenance, but I would argue that customers prefer to make a long-term investment into their homes and not have something that outdates itself; or looks older than your house; in maybe 10 years’ time.  Many timber windows fitted over 60 years ago are still in use today. How long does PVC stay there before it is replaced?

Aluminium is strong and durable and will last a long time, but is it warm? Is it homely?

The choice is yours.
