Wooden window frames look great, are good at insulating your home and are come in a wide variety of styles. Wooden casement windows are the most popular and look great on any property.
Timber window frames offer a number of benefits over other materials such as uPVC or metal. Wooden window frames are really attractive and look great in any home, but particularly suit period properties. Frames to suit your home are available in a variety of wood types including oak, mahogany or maple, each of which can be painted, stained or carved. Wooden frames are also environmentally friendly, especially if the wood is sustainably sourced or made using reclaimed timber. Wood is a naturally insulating material, so they help retain heat within your home and lower your household carbon emissions. Window frames are also long lasting, as long as you keep on top of the maintenance with regular repainting or staining to keep the wood looking good and weatherproof. The cost of wooden window frames is competitive with other materials, though uPVC is a cheaper option.

Check if they are members of any professional trade association as this can offer some benefits in terms of resolution if things do go wrong for extra peace of mind. For example when homeowners use a Glass and Glazing Federation Member they are assured of professional workmanship and service of the very highest standard. Finally compare the quotations on a like for like basis and decide which fitter or company is best for the job.
