Wooden windows, especially sash ones, are the most environmentally friendly designs. This is true for several reasons. As far as the environmental impact goes, there are numerous factors to think about when choosing them.
What material do you want?
When treated and sourced properly, wooden sash windows are going to last far longer. They are more environmentally friendly and economical than other varieties of sash.
The most common timber is pine as it comes from trees that grow quickly. These can come from managed, sustainable forests. In other words, for every tree you cut down here, another gets planted. With materials like Accoya, we treat the pine. We do so to heighten its durability and stability.
Recycling, repair, and replacement
You also need to think about recycling, repair, and replacement. Timber can be the best option here for many reasons. Firstly you can repaint and treat it so your windows always look great. Then, repair is possible even if there is an issue like rot. Finally, if you do need to replace a window, you can recycle the timber to protect the environment.
The trouble with uPVC windows is that you can’t repaint them. As a result, in the event that decay or damage happens, you would have to completely replace the window. This is more wasteful. The uPVC is a porous substance too so it will probably suffer from pollution. Not to mention, it will degrade in the sun, turning yellow and brittle. That means it may not last as long as a good timber window.
You may be surprised to know that the aesthetics of the windows can impact the environment by ruining the character of a location. Sadly, this can happen though. With that in mind, you may want to choose timber windows to help preserve your neighbourhood. They are far better aesthetically.

At Wood & Wisdom, we have plenty to offer our clients. This includes a choice of designs such as our box sash designs.
