Timber effect windows are a popular window choice for homeowners across the UK. If you live in a period property or conservation area, they are an excellent alternative to traditional timber windows. When you’re planning to replace your windows and you’re unsure if timber effect windows are the best choice for your home, here are some benefits of installing wood replica windows at your home.

Classic appearance

Modern performance

Residence Collection windows provide an authentic timber appearance with all the benefits of UPVC. Their multi-chambered profiles help to maximise energy efficiency for a warmer interior living area. While their weathertight seals will protect your home from the harshest of British weather conditions.

Many homeowners are put off traditional timber windows because of the high levels of maintenance. Timber windows need sanding down and re-painting or varnishing every few years to ensure they don’t deteriorate. With UPVC timber effect windows, all you need to do is wipe them down with warm soapy water and they’ll continue to look and perform like the day they were installed for many years to come.

Timber effect windows for modern and traditional properties

As you can see, timber effect windows are a great window replacement choice. Whether you live in a modern or period property, they will add a touch of elegance to any home. They are, in fact, so authentic in style, that they have been accepted for use in conservation areas and in listed buildings across the UK.
