Why Choose Timber Windows?
Choosing between timber windows and aluminium windows? Are you weighing up the pros and cons as to what direction to go in?
By nature, timber windows provide the highest degree of thermal resistance when compared to competing materials on the market. When paired with the appropriate glass and glazing system, the natural efficiency of timber will ensure your home remains energy efficient.
A few things that add to the pro’s list when weighing up your options are the eco friendly rating that timber windows offer. Not only do timber windows look fantastic, they will also last a lifetime.
Are Timber Windows Eco Friendly?
Timber windows offer a number of beneficial factors to our environment, as well as storing carbon absorbed from the atmosphere, timber is naturally the best insulator and the best options when it comes to choosing an environmentally friendly home.
Bayview Timber Windows source the timber that they use from local suppliers and ensure that the quality of product is second to none.
Natural, renewable and biodegradable, timber windows have a much lower carbon footprint than other materials. When trees are harvested, most of the carbon stored in them is transferred to the wood products they produce. By planting new trees, they are able to absorb more CO² due to the more vigorous growth of younger trees. Timber also has a significantly lower environmental impact during manufacturing when compared to aluminium and UPVC.
The ability to maintain and repair timber windows, along with their longer lifespan, means less maintenance is required throughout their lifespan. Wood is also a better insulator than plastic or metal, which makes them a great choice for reducing your carbon footprint around the home.
Can I Have Timber Windows Custom Made?
Another amazing quality that timber windows have is the ability we have to shape and mould timber to any shape required. Timber windows have the natural flexibility and durability to minimise the limitations of timber windows and doors. The different configurations and shapes that Bayview Timber Windows can achieve allows you to have timber windows in nearly any size or shape that you can think of.
As timber windows are a natural source of material, they are able to withstand all types of weather, making it the perfect choice for a home in Melbourne, the city that has four seasons in one day.
How Long Do Timber Windows Last?
Timber windows and doors could last up to 30 years, when timber windows are maintained and looked after. While over the years companies have attempted to make different materials to replace timber windows, nothing will ever beat the original. Timber windows are a timeless and durable option that won’t necessarily break the bank.
Timber windows not only have a natural charm about them but they can be easily replicated to match older styled properties to maintain the original look and feel or they can be changed slightly to accommodate a more modern twist. Timber windows offer a number of options in terms of finishing. They can be stained to preserve the wood’s natural tones, or painted to suit your personal preference – which, of course, also offers the option of repainting them a different colour in the future should you wish.
