So, you’re choosing new windows and need to cover all bases before you can make your final decision. The beauty of wooden windows has captured your eye and your imagination, but you don’t know whether your budget will stretch that far – or whether it needs to stretch at all! Don’t worry, we understand better than most what a difficult decision it can be; so, allow us to shed some light on the matter.
Wooden window suitability
uPVC windows have become the ‘go-to’ frame for modern double glazing since the 1990’s, which is completely understandable in today’s fast-paced world, as they offer a practical and low maintenance window solution to busy Hertfordshire families. But, if you’re searching for window frames that will infuse a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’, especially in period properties restricted by building regulations, it makes sense to set your sights on wondrous wooden window design. Typically, wooden window materials are generally suited to traditional eras, e.g. Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian, although they create a solid investment and strong statement within contemporary properties too.
Wooden framed windows are not out of reach, in terms of affordability
Wooden window installation is often discounted by homeowners, who unfortunately believe that wooden windows are completely out of their budget range. This is an outdated misconception that we would like to put to bed, once and for all! Once true, due to the leading national distributors greedily making considerable margins on their timber window frames, when you choose Chase Windows you get a very different service indeed. This is because we’ve set up our own manufacturing line of timber windows, completely cutting out the ‘middle-man margin’ and excitingly allowing us to offer competitive and affordable timber products. So, whilst uPVC window frames will generally tend to be cheaper than most window systems (although they also vary enormously in price, depending on quality, style and colour), wooden windows will almost certainly pay for themselves in terms of a value-adding investment, incredible aesthetics and endurance.
Can the type of wood affect the price of wooden windows?
The Chase wooden window range is available in four distinct species of timber; Pine, Meranti or Sapele Hardwood and Oak. These have been specifically chosen with both performance and affordability in mind.
