Drive down the average suburban street and you’ll notice that most homes are fitted with the same style of white UPVC window. No matter what the age of the house, or its style, only limited designs seem to be used, which is a shame as they can often spoil the look of period homes or make properties look identikit. That’s why many homeowners are now discovering the benefits of wooden windows, which have a huge number of design variations and add style to your home. Here are some reasons to choose wood over plastic when it comes to window replacements.
Some homeowners are worried that wood window frames won’t be as energy efficient as UPVC, but with improvements in manufacturing techniques, that’s no longer the case. When you choose Georgian windows made in wood, they have protection from wind, rain, rot and fungus, and are much sturdier than wooden windows of the past. Wooden windows can also be fitted with high quality double glazing, ensuring that your home is well protected from the cold and helping it to stay cool in summer.
Wood is a lot more versatile than UPVC, which means a lot more designs are possible. For example, if you want casement windows to fit an unusually sized window, then it’s easier to craft them from wood, so you can get the style you want. Some advantages of bespoke windows include:
· Getting the perfect fit
· Matching your windows to the period of your home
· Having a wider range of style options
· Being able to choose the perfect finish
Therefore, wooden windows can help you stamp your own personality on your home, and you can be sure that the ones you choose will blend perfectly into your property.
Make your home unique
With so many homes now fitted with UPVC doors and windows, a home with wooden fittings can really stand out for the right reasons. Fittings such as sash windows are stylish and add warmth and character to your home, making it feel pleasant and homely. If you have a period home that has previously been renovated, with fixtures like plastic doors added, then stripping them out and adding wood can make a big different to your home’s exterior.
If you are thinking of selling your home in the next few years, then it’s often worth investing in new bay windows in wood, which can instantly add value to your home. Not only do they look good, they add a unique selling point for your property, and in a competitive property market, really quality windows and doors can give you the edge.
