What we want the most from our products is for them to meet the distinct needs of the clients. This is also the case for our bespoke timber windows. Thankfully, it isn’t a difficult task for us as we take a custom made approach to the design. In addition, we have a huge array of timbers at our disposal.
Sadly there are many misconceptions flying around about timber windows. As experts, we know that many of them are false. To help, we are going to clear up some of the confusion here. By doing this, you can make more informed choices regarding which type of window you opt for or whether to replace old timber ones.
Firstly, we will discuss the energy efficiency of these windows. One of the most common misconceptions is that they are not efficient. However, they can be just as good as other styles of window.
You can have double glazing with wooden windows, including sashes, even if you are retrofitting it to old ones. In addition to reducing the amount of heat they lose, the glazing lowers exterior noises. Not to mention, it aids users in reducing dust and dirt ingress. You can even choose draught proofing to make the sashes even more efficient.
The next thing we are going to talk about is window rot. Some people believe rotting is a major threat regardless of the window they are using. This is not entirely true. You should do everything possible to preserve your windows by following the installer’s advice. Doing so will protect the timber for years. More than a century after they were initially fitted, many timber sash windows are still in use.
To some extent, the chances of rot becoming an issue depends on the variety of wood you use. To discover which one is most suitable for your property, we recommend speaking with our team.
