Timber is actually a very eco-friendly choice when it comes to windows too. Many people are under the impression that using up our tree stock is a bad thing and of course, while we need to protect them, it’s important to remember that the production of timber windows has a much lower carbon footprint than many other materials.
Re-planting of commonly used timbers also contributes to the re-greening of areas that are used for their timber.
