Timber Alternative Windows

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

Timber alternative windows are windows that have been designed to look like wooden windows but are made from uPVC.

Many people love the look of timber windows but are put off by the high cost and the maintenance required to keep them looking there best.

Timber alternative windows have all the visual charm of timber windows, combined with the advantages of a uPVC window.

The vertical sash window and the flush sash casement window are both available in a range of colours including some fabulous heritage colours.

The windows are often mechanically joined to give a butted timber look joint rather than a uPVC weld.

So, what are the advantages of timber alternatives?

  • Available in a wide range of styles and colours

  • Confirmed energy ratings

  • Cost effective

  • High insulation values

  • virtually maintenance free

  • Better draught exclusion

  • Longevity of aesthetics

  • No annual painting

  • No fading

  • Norotting

  • No warping or twisting

Details like monkey tail handles and window stays complete the authentic look, but they can also be used to create a more contemporary look by choosing modern colours and handles.

The timber alternatives that Andy Glass Windows install, look so authentic that they have been approved by many Conservation Officers across the county as a viable alternative to timber.
