Trustier Than Timber, Check Out Heritage Windows
Replacing the existing windows at your home is never a simple task. The styling and aesthetics of the substitute design have to be exactly right in order to maintain the traditional character of the property, complicated even further if you’re replacing old timber windows.
There is nothing like real timber, or is there? We know that there is.
Our Heritage window range is a contemporary imitation of the original 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window crafted from UPVC, though when you see it you’d scarcely believe it isn’t manufactured from wood.
A timber effect runs through the entire frame and it even features period hardware such as monkeytail handles for further authenticity. It’s so alike to timber in appearance that it’s often stipulated and approved in conservation areas, partly also due to the fabulous finishes on offer which are similarly associated with the 19th Century design e.g. Cotswold Biscuit, Painswick, Irish Oak.
However, whilst Heritage windows look exactly like wood, they don’t perform like it, on the contrary.
The thermal efficiency they provide far exceeds timber so it will cost considerably less to insulate your living space and they don’t need any upkeep as they’re completely maintenance-free. The occasional wipe with a wet cloth will be enough to leave them back looking their best again.
They can accommodate double glazing or triple glazing, or if you want to obscure the inside of home away from passing prying eyes you can always choose to integrate privacy glazing.
Enhanced security is another reason they triumph over timber as the frame is incredibly durable and the locking mechanism attached to each window keeps it securely fastened.
You can see examples from our Heritage range at your local West Yorkshire Windows showroom where we also showcase a raft of other high-quality home improvements.
