If you are looking for custom built windows to modernise, update or otherwise improve your home, we believe you should go with timber instead of aluminium. We have our choice of products to work with, but we have chosen to work with timber for both doors and windows. A lot of your Perth area neighbours agree with us. Here’s why.
Timber frames add a natural beauty to your home, especially if you choose to use staining instead of paint. There is nothing like the look of wood grain on a window or door frame. Tastefully installed and maintained timber windows can add to the resale value of your home, just due to the perception of beauty.
They Last Longer
Timber windows last seemingly forever if you keep them maintained. You can reseal or restain timber windows years after they were installed and make them look “new.” If you have a structural problem with a timber window frame, you can usually repair it. Cosmetic problems are much more easily remedied, too.
Basically, once an aluminium window corrodes or warps, it is finished and you have to replace it. And that happens much more often than you may think.
They Save Money
We know: it’s a tad cheaper to install aluminium windows. But you are only going to have to install a timber window once. With even reasonable maintenance, it will last as long as the rest of your house. Also, timber is an insulator and it will help you save money on heating and cooling costs.
Much Better for the Environment
The manufacturing of aluminium creates a large amount of greenhouse gases and toxic materials that end up going back into the environment. Timber actually takes carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas and stores the carbon atoms as timber while releasing oxygen into the environment.
