While UPVC and aluminium do have a lot of attractive properties, they simply don’t work with a property of character, and for many UK homeowners, tailored timber windows make for a stylish choice. Of course, the units would be double glazed, with hermetic seals that prevent condensation from forming on the inside of the window.
Made to Measure
There are no off-the-shelf solutions with softwood windows in Barnsley, and all units are crafted to very precise measurements that guarantee a perfect fit. If you prefer timber, you have a choice of hardwood or softwood, along with choices of:
- Flush fitting casements
- Lipped fitting casements
- Georgian or Edwardian styles
The timber frames can either be painted or stained, which helps to retain that fine wood-grain look, and ideally, you want the style of windows to match the character of the house.
The replacement window company would provide a comprehensive service from initial design to fitting, and they would have a range of seasoned timbers from which to choose. Once a design is agreed upon, the company would then send an experienced surveyor to your home, where all the details can be agreed, while he takes precise measurements for fabrication.
A team of replacement window fitters could finish an average sized house in two days, complete with interior window sills and all the cleaning up, leaving you with brand new, made to measure windows.
