Timber remains as one of the most popular materials for windows and doors. While uPVC is now popular, there are many reasons why you might wish to choose timber instead. Firstly, according to a study by the Building Research Establishment (BRE), timber windows and doors have a life expectancy of 60 years. In contrast, those made from uPVC have a life expectancy of just 35 years.
Secondly, timber sourced from sustainable forests is certified by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as a virtually limitless resource.
At i-Wood, all our wood is sourced from sustainable forests. By choosing us, you will be doing your bit to help the environment.
Another reason to choose wood for your windows and doors is flexibility. We can easily shape and even re-design timber at low cost. There is also a variety of different shades and colours naturally available in different species for you to choose from. We can then varnish, stain or paint your preferred wood to suit to any unique tastes and requirements.
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of wood is its naturally beautiful appearance. This is true of even some of the cheapest woods used for such purposes. Ultimately, our real passion lies with luxurious soft woods such as walnut and mahogany, which are known for their strength, rich natural colours and striking grains. We make windows and doors for both external and internal use.
