Most people agree that windows and doors are the most critical component in the exterior design, visual impact, and appeal of your home – which is why so many opt for timber. Nothing else comes close.
Timber is timeless
Despite modern alternatives, when it comes to creating unique and beautiful homes the majority of architects, builders and home owners still prefer for wood.
Even inside a home choosing the right windows and doors will make all the difference to blurring the spaces between outside and in, making your home simply more liveable and enjoyable.
Vinyl, aluminum and fibreglass rarely ever match the elegance of timber. Nothing comes close to its functionality, flexibility, beauty and durability.
It’s a sad fact that many modern products just don’t last like they used to or like they are meant to. When it comes to doors and windows, substitutes are just that.
In our modern world, which can veer towards artificial products breeding toxic overloads, wood stands apart as a natural product, a healthy product. Its inherent properties are bacteria and mould resistant. Just think about it, trees can live for millennia.
Timber is a solid investment in more ways than one, adding immense character to your home – because, it is a character in its own right. With chain of custody records you can pinpoint exactly what forest your timber comes from, its age and species type, Now that’s a talking point! And then there are the stories that flow from reclaimed or recycled wood.
But more than being sustainably harvested, in our age of global warming, wood is also the best choice due to its ability to capture carbon dioxide emissions.
