Wood Windows Are More Budget-Friendly in The Long Run

The initial cost of wood can be more expensive than uPVC, but it all depends on the type of wood species you opt as it makes a huge difference in costs. For example, Teak tends to be anywhere from 20-40% more expensive than Pine depending on the sourcing.To recap why wood windows are more budget-friendly when compared to uPVC windows:

Energy Efficient

Wood is more energy efficient due to being naturally warm

Durable

Wood can be restored to its original condition which can affect the appearance and value of your home

Aesthetically Pleasing

High-quality wood windows are more aesthetically pleasing which will drastically increase the value of your home compared with uPVC

How wood Windows are more Energy Efficient & Eco Friendly??

When it comes to energy efficiency, wood will always have an upper hand due to the natural benefits found in it. For example, wood is warmer by nature compared to uPVC which will act as a natural insulator in your home. UPVC, on the other hand, is a cold material that takes longer to warm up which means you will insulate less warmth in your home.

Wood is a much more sustainable resource compared to uPVC. The frames of uPVC windows can take up to 9 times more energy to create compared to a wooden frame.

A high number of co2 emissions produced and waste left over by uPVC is also a concerning problem for the environment.

BFP uses wood derived from responsible wood sources in order to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. 

Wood Provides Slimmer Window Profiles & Details

All the heritage windows are mostly constructed out of wood. Do you wonder why heritage windows are made of wood? The fine details and slim profiles that are often associated with heritage windows can only be done in wood as it is next to impossible to replicate this level of detail with uPVC.

UPVC Windows Cannot Be Repaired

Contrary to belief, UPVC can’t be restored to its original condition, unlike wood.

Wood requires varnishing, weatherproofing and maintenance to keep them in their original condition. By maintaining your wood windows, you’ll get a longer lifespan in terms of appearance and performance. Although it does require slightly more work than uPVC, but you will actually save more money in the long run as you could see 50 years out of your wooden windows with proper maintenance compared to around 20 years with uPVC. 

Conclusion

  • Wooden windows are highly energy efficient and durable. They do not corrode or rust over as time passes by.
  • Wooden windows can be customized in any size or color to match the décor of your house.
  • Wood is a poor conductor of heat; thus wooden windows and wooden doors conserve more energy than aluminium windows and doors.
  • Wooden windows, if maintained well, can help boost the value of any property they’re installed into and they’ll last a great deal longer. 
  • Some of the cons of using wood are: 

    Requires polishing once in a while
    Wooden windows are expensive
    Wooden windows are prone to termites, but if taken proper termite treatment, the chances are negligible
