When you’re looking at replacing your current windows there are a few things you should take into consideration. Firstly, and typically the most important issue to the majority of people is the overall look of the windows, in particular how closely they match or complement the style of property. Secondly, you should consider the function, i.e. how do they open, close and lock, and which rooms will specific windows be placed in, and the overall integrity, i.e. how well are they built, how much work is required by way of maintenance and what is the effective lifespan of the window. Being close to the coast in Southport or Liverpool, for example, you might expect that the high winds, salt and sand can require increased maintenance or otherwise shorten the lifespan of the windows.
If you’re looking to replace your windows with a set of custom timber framed windows, then there are a few things you may want to think about prior to doing so:
1. Windows are an investment. Spending money on a good quality timber window is a better long term investment then perhaps a cheaper, but significantly less durable, alternative. Ultimately, this can save you money in the long run.
2.Timber framed windows can be treated in a variety of ways to achieve different looks and feels to better complement your property.
3.If built to a high standard, and perhaps contrary to popular opinion, wooden windows can be very low maintenance and easily repaired by a qualified professional.
4.Wood is a strong natural insulator, this can help save on energy bills compared to PVC or variants by reducing the amount of wasted energy used to heat your home with. Wood is also very good at reflecting heat in the summer, auto regulating the temperature of your home through all of the seasons
5. Last but not least, timber framed windows are very environmentally friendly, with a much smaller impact on the environment compared to the manufacture of the PVC alternative.
