There are various different styles of window to choose from, including casement, sash, awning, hopper, round, and bay. With so many choices and different characteristics to think about, it can be a difficult to make a choice. Why settle on a specific type though? Instead discuss custom timber windows with our team and get something unique to you. You can decide exactly how you want them to look, including glazing bars and furniture options.
Aesthetics may be the biggest advantage of custom windows but it is not the only one. There are several worth noting.
The right fit
It is vital that windows fit perfectly. If they don’t they will allow draughts, won’t look very good, and could also be at risk of falling out. It can be difficult to get a window to fit properly, especially if the opening is a unique shape. Luckily a custom timber design should fit every time, especially if it is made to the exact measurements.
A major issue with draughty ill-fitting windows is they are not energy efficient. In fact you’ll be paying more to keep your home at the right temperature. A custom window should leave no gaps and be sealed properly when installed. That way there are no gaps and they will maximise efficiency. Timber is a good insulator too because it has air pockets in the cellular structure.
Timber is one of the greenest materials you can use because it is renewable and recyclable. In addition it locks in more carbon than other materials and requires less energy during manufacturing. All round wood is an excellent option for your windows as long as you treat and maintain it properly.
