Timber window frames are beautiful, there is no doubt about that. They are also perfect for those aiming for a traditional and authentic look. People tend to do this for period and older structures. With a great design and careful maintenance, these frames can offer you a wonderful aesthetic. At the same time, they shall last for years. This makes them an investment you will want to think about.
What type of wood to choose for your frames?
Making the choice to introduce these frames in your property probably won’t be hard. However, one of the most important parts of the design process is choosing the type of wood you will use. It is going to be a tad more difficult too. After all, there are so many distinct woods available for use. They each have their own characteristics and you need to be aware of things like wear resistance.
Softwoods and hardwoods
There is a way for you to narrow down the choices of wood here. What you have to do is pick between the two main groups; softwoods and hardwoods. Each type possesses separate properties to match the requirements of each situation. Therefore you need to select the right one for your project.
Hardwood for example is typically heavier and denser. It also tends to vary in dark shades with ornate grain patterns. When speaking about wood, hardness is how much it can resist impact damage. You may not think this is important for a window but it is actually vital.
As for softwood, it is lighter and less expensive. We mean this in terms of colour and weight. Moreover, it is not as dense. The majority of softwoods are exceptionally sustainable as well. This makes them much better for the environment.
