Add period windows to your home without the heat loss

Timber look residence 9 uPVC period windows with traditional hardware

When you think of traditional windows, you’re probably thinking of rattly draughty and worn wooden windows. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. You can enjoy the beautiful aesthetic of timber windows with the superior performance and durability of uPVC. Overtime, old wooden windows can lose their shine and make your home prone to cold spots and draughts. Without regular and time-consuming maintenance, they can lose their colour and break down. This can lead to heat loss and tired looking windows.

Beautiful windows with no drawbacks from the past

Timber effect windows are becoming extremely popular. They look stunning and are an effortless way of bringing a heritage charm to any home. With intricate detailing and joinery techniques used in the manufacturing, they’re indistinguishable from real timber. Made using durable and insulating uPVC, just a simple clean with soapy water is all that’s needed to keep them looking good.

Stop losing heat out of your windows

Upgrading your windows will have a significant impact on the comfort levels of your home as well as your energy efficiency. If you still have the original wooden windows installed when the property was built, you might still have single glazing. This is becoming an obsolete form of glazing now and won’t keep your home’s warmth in. It also won’t block out unwanted noise effectively so upgrading to double glazing is a must. The savings you could see in your energy bills make upgraded windows even more appealing. A+ rated double glazing could save a detached home up to £110. Double glazing is expected to last at least 20 years so it’s a worthwhile investment for your home.

Create a charming feel with colour

When it comes to creating a period feel in your home, colour and hardware are important. Woodgrain finishes will ensure that your wooden windows will perfectly resemble timber. In the 19th century when windows were painted, gentle pastel shades were often used. Why not go for cream or Chartwell Green? Traditional hardware such as iron monkey-tail handles will add that perfect finishing touch.
