Why choose wooden windows?
The beauty of real wood windows and doors is that they don’t just save money through saving energy, they can also add value to your home.
Windows For Life
We only use the finest slow-growth pine, which has been engineered to remove knots and defects, pressure treated with the latest water-borne preservatives, and sprayed with water-based coatings under strictly controlled factory conditions.
With normal maintenance, our windows have a minimum estimated service life of 60 years. But with a little extra care, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t last 80 years or longer.

THE BEAUTY OF TIMBER
The beauty of real wood windows and doors is that they don’t just save money through saving energy, they can also add value to your home. A national survey of estate agents carried out by English Heritage in 2008 found ‘unsympathetic replacement windows and doors, particularly plastic/ PVC-u, are the single biggest threat to property values in conservation areas’.
Our windows are supplied fully finished. Coatings applied in controlled factory conditions ensure even invisible elements of the frame are painted to an exacting specification, with special attention to joints and end-grain. You won’t have to refresh the initial coating for many years, in fact we offer an 8 year warranty on our opaque coating. Re-coating is simple, with minimal preparation. Just one top coat should be all that’s needed to restore the beautiful appearance of the frames.
