The evolution of timber: Today timber is a better choice than ever before for windows and doors

Timber has significantly advanced in the past couple of decades. It earnt a bad reputation in the 1960s due to its poor on-site construction and cheap plastic windows soon became a common choice for consumers in the UK and Europe. Then, manufacturers began to quickly reassess how to improve the quality of timber windows in order to prevent moisture leakage and rot. This brought about the development of engineered timber components that vastly transformed the lifespan and quality of timber.

Luckily people have fallen back in love with timber again and is now an extremely popular choice for consumers. Aside from being a natural element and blending into its surroundings, timber windows have the environmental benefits of being carbon negative and a sustainable natural resource, unlike uPVC.

With an evergrowing environmentally-mindful consumer, timber is certainly a favourite among many due to its longevity and strength, not to mention its beautiful appearance.

Technological advancements in glass have also meant that timber windows are now more highly energy efficient and thermally insulated than ever. - and our timber windows are certainly no exception in this regard.

We work hard to maintain the great reputation of timber, ensuring that we are up-to-date with modern technology and incorporate all the best features in our current designs.
