Double Glazed Timber Windows and Doors

A timber window or door will give your home or office a natural and comfortable feel. The natural grain of wood in timber windows or doors provides a feeling of warmth and comfort and it adds to the unique character of a house.
Timber windows possess good thermal property by keeping out cold air from outside and do not facilitate condensation. This is why timber frames are very compatible to the double glazing systems. The good thermal property of timber will enhance the effectiveness of the double glazing in keeping heat in or out. Further savings on electricity bill and reduce in greenhouse gas emissions can be expected by the combination of timber and double glazing.
