Key features and benefits of wooden windows and doors used in your home are as follows:|
High thermal resistance
Wood has a high thermal resistance compared to other commonly used building products. This reduces heat losses and provides the following benefits:
- Warmer homes with lower energy bills.
- No condensation on wood surfaces, providing a healthier indoor environment.
With proper maintenance the lifespan of windows and doors can extend to more than 100 years. Evidence of this can be seen in the many older colonial homes still using
their original wooden windows and doors - and the benefit of this to a homeowner is cost savings over the extended life of a home.
More design flexibility
Wooden windows and doors provide you with great design flexibility:
You can change the look
- As well as standard profiles you can also use customised window and door designs.
- Lots of paint colours for the wood and many choices of hardware fittings are available to provide you with the finished look that you want.
If you choose high quality paint and hardware to go with your wooden windows and doors you can expect them to remain in good condition for at least ten years. At the end of this
time it is relatively easy to repaint the wood and replace the hardware. In doing so you can choose styles and colours to fit in with the latest trends.
Wood is a renewable resource with a low carbon footprint. By choosing wooden windows and doors you have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to
protect our environment for future generations of people to enjoy.
