Hardwood Windows, Doors, Conservatories, Double Glazing, Timber - in association with Double-Glazing-UK.co.uk

replacement window repairsTimber Replacement Windows

Timber or wooden windows are still popular - especially with "traditionalists". Many different types of timber are used and these include most types of hardwood, pine and cedar.

For traditional design with an authentic look - perhaps on a listed building or in a conservation area, this is the one to use.


double glazing repairsJust about any traditional design or feature can be recreated - incorporating the contemporary benefit of double-glazing. While timber will require some periodic maintenance, modern paint finishes and stains ensure that this is increasingly less of an issue. It is now available in a variety of stains (mahogany, light oak, etc.), as well as various painted finishes (white, cream, green and brown).

For bespoke designs particularly, this will be the most expensive choice of material; but then again it will look very special. Be aware that just as with PVCu varying frame thickness will effect the structural strength. Also check with your supplier the jointing method. Most use a traditional "mortice and tenon" joint but other systems do exist.
