Timber effect windows are a popular choice for homeowners who want to recreate the appearance of natural wood. They are made using a durable wood grain effect foil finish which can be specified in a selection of colours to represent different wood types or a painted look. Often chosen by homeowners living in traditional period properties or rurally located homes, they are also becoming increasingly popular for installations in more modern properties.
If you live in a property with old timber windows, you may not be entirely happy with their performance. Perhaps they’ve become draughty or suffer from interior condensation, particularly in the morning. Or maybe you’re tired of the continual maintenance required to keep them in good condition. If you’re thinking about replacing your old timber windows with uPVC timber effect alternatives but you’re unsure whether their appearance is realistic enough, there’s really no need to worry.
Thanks to modern advancements in technology, timber effect uPVC windows like those we install at Techniglaze, are almost impossible to differentiate from the real thing. To the casual observer, they look exactly like real wood and even to a glazing expert, it would require a close inspection to tell the difference.
If you’re still unsure whether timber effect windows are the best option for your home improvement plans, here are some ways which they benefit the homeowner above their real wood counterpart.
As you can see, timber effect uPVC windows are an excellent alternative to real wood windows. There are certain situations, such as in conservation areas and listed buildings that natural wood will be required. In most other situations, timber effect uPVC windows are an excellent choice.
