With such outstanding and technologically advanced window materials available these days, it can be a tough decision having to choose between practical uPVC windows and natural wooden windows. With such confusion around price differences and levels of performance between these two diverse window material options, we thought we’d take the time to look into the matter for you.
The suitability of uPVC or wooden window materials largely depends on the type of era and style your home falls within, where timber windows excel at enhancing period properties, e.g. Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian styles. Considering how technologically advanced both uPVC and wooden windows have become, both make viable options for most styles of property – at the end of the day, it all comes down to personal taste.
Although uPVC is generally considered the most affordable and low maintenance window material (depending on quality, style and colour), we are beginning to experience more interest in our elegant and timeless wooden window range. Expertly sealed for efficiency and low maintenance qualities, wooden windows can also be incredibly conservation friendly. Therefore, wooden windows shouldn’t be discounted as ‘out of your league’, as they will almost certainly pay for themselves by enhancing your home’s value and kerb appeal beyond compare.
Our handsome hardwood sliding sash windows offer Suffolk homeowners the best of both worlds, in terms of classic period aesthetic elements seamlessly combined with the incredible functionality and warmth that modern window design brings. uPVC sliding sash windows look just as good as their original hardwood counterparts, with the added benefits of easy-clean maintenance and family-friendly child safety locks fitted as standard. If you’re planning on purchasing sliding sash windows outright, then uPVC sliding sash windows are most likely to be the most affordable option. However, if you’re open to exploring window finance options then the world truly is your oyster!
At AB-Asset’s, we are firm believers that the beauty of wooden windows should not be restricted.
