Why timber windows are better for your home?
Plastic degrades, whereas wooden windows have an estimated service life of around 60 years. That’s twice the life of uPVC windows. Plastic windows become discoloured and brittle as a result of exposure to the sun and unlike wood framed windows, they can’t be repaired. In fact, once you maintain and repaint wood windows, their lifespan starts all over again.
