Why Wooden Windows Are The Way To Go
As the satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer once said, “bad weather always looks worse through a window”. What he didn’t say is that wooden windows always look good, no matter what the weather! As more and more homeowners in and around Cirencester turn to timber for their replacement windows, there’s never been a better time to consider the wonders of wood.
1. Wood looks good
There’s no denying it, timber just looks good. There’s a timeless, organic quality to it that synthetic materials can’t match – not that there’s anything wrong with synthetic materials, of course! It’s as if we all believe, deep down, that window frames ought to be made out of wood. Fitting timber framed replacement windows is a great way to give your home elegance and individual character.
2. Wood is versatile
Wooden windows aren’t just for older properties, although, of course, they are perfectly suited for that purpose. Modern design and manufacturing techniques mean they can be fitted to any type of home, from historic houses to the very newest developments. Whatever type or age of house you live in, there’s a style of timber frame to suit you.
3. Wood gives you choice
You also have complete freedom of choice when it comes to colour and texture. From dark grained oak or mahogany to smooth white frames, you’ve got such a wide palette to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find a finish that’s just right for you.
4. Wood is robust
Advances in manufacturing technology have completely overcome all of the old problems associated with wooden frames – sticking, warping, cracking and rotting. Modern timber frames will keep your home free from draughts, and are treated to withstand anything the British climate can throw at them. One of the things you’ll love about wooden frames is that they’re easy to maintain. Once they’re installed, they’ll go on looking good and keeping you snug and secure for years to come.
5. Wood goes with anything
Even uPVC! If you want a white uPVC finish on the inside and a warm timber finish on the outside, that’s no problem. Or you could have it the other way around, if you prefer! This hybrid style of window frame is becoming increasingly popular.
Wooden windows, then, are a serious choice for anybody looking to replace their window frames. It’s a natural, traditional material that continues to thrive in the 21st Century – easy to work with, easy to customise, and surprisingly easy on your budget, too!
