Your Questions on Answered by us
In general, wooden windows tend to be more expensive than uPVC windows as the manufacturing process is more labour-intensive and the raw materials are more expensive. But the cost of wooden windows may be offset by their durability and longevity.
Yes, people still use wooden windows today, and they remain a popular choice for many homeowners and architects. While other materials such as uPVC and aluminium have become more common in recent years, wooden windows continue to offer a timeless look that is hard to replicate. They’re perfect for listed buildings or those in conservation areas. Many people with older properties decide to keep or revive their wooden windows to keep the look when renovating.
Well-constructed and well-maintained wooden windows can last for several decades, with an expected lifespan of around 30 to 50 years. This assumes that the windows are regularly cleaned, maintained, and refinished to protect them from the elements and prevent damage or decay. But if wooden windows are not well-maintained, they can deteriorate more quickly and have a shorter lifespan.
While replacement wooden windows are generally more expensive, the durability of timber over time makes them a cost-effective choice in the long run if properly cared for. The cost of our double-glazed wooden windows varies in line with the style, size and species of hardwood or softwood you choose. Softwoods grow very fast, which makes them the less pricey option compared to hardwoods which grow slowly.
The type of wood used to make casement windows can have a significant impact on their durability, strength, and quality. Hardwoods like Sapele are more durable and long-lasting than softwoods such as pine, but they can also be more expensive. For some, pine can be a good middle-ground. Pine is a dense softwood we give a double vacuum preservative treatment for added protection.
