Timber Windows And Doors

There are many advantages and a few disadvantages to choosing timber products for your home. Some of the advantages include:

Timber can be finished with a vast choice of stains or colours

The timber we use is put together using numerous types of wood that are glued together with polyurethane

The wood is glued in layers using a process called ‘engineered timber’, it ensures the wood is not vulnerable to the outdoor elements because the polyurethane guards it from moisture

Engineered timber is more resistant to swelling or bending

Timber doors and frames have solid cores

It can be trimmed to fit the old frame

Timber won’t rust over time

Timber is excellent for controlling sound

Wood is a natural insulating agent

It is available in a plethora of designs and is absolutely beautiful in its finished appearance

Disadvantages of Using Timber

Although gorgeous to look at, there are a couple of negative points to using timber. They include:

Engineered timber is more expensive than regular timber or some other materials

Regular timber is sometimes susceptible to pricey problems with the woods structure

Even though it is much more durable than regular timber, engineered timber can absorb moisture and cause the frames to bend

Bent frames can affect the gasket seals and their performance

Timber is heavy and can droop in time

Timber requires a lot more maintenance than uPVC or aluminum, such as periodic staining or painting

Sebastian Church Builders carries a wide variety of timber doors and window frames. Wood is an excellent insulator and is by far the most attractive option for frames and doors. If you have other wood on the exterior of your home, you should make sure that your new timber products and old wood match for aesthetic reasons. Whether its tilt and turn, casement, Georgian or sash windows, we have timber options available to suit your every need. If you are looking for French, sliding, or bi-folding doors, the same rule applies. Sebastian Church Builders has a huge inventory and selection of timber doors and frames, as well as uPVC, aluminum, or composite.
