Timber Framed Windows
Timber framed windows are the ultimate in terms of a traditional look and can be a real asset to your home. However, these lovely looking frames come with both a price tag and a higher level of maintenance is required to keep them in a good condition. They are not traditionally the most sturdy of frames but many manufacturers now offer timber frames with an aluminium core to compensate for this.
Metal Framed Windows
Modern galvanised metal windows are favoured for their strength and high level of security, particularly compared to timber framed windows. Made from either aluminium or steel metal windows are long-lasting, can be painted in practically any colour under the sun and are resistant to weathering. Metal windows are equally as great a deterrent for security conscious home owners as uPVC windows.
