Once upon a time all homes were built with the hardwood windows and doors. However, eventually it was realised that these were extremely vulnerable to the elements and, without proper maintenance, they could easily become cracked or rotted and were not very energy efficient.
A short while later a new product was introduced – PVCu. Instantly popular with installers and home owners alike, PVCu is easy to maintain and drastically brought down the costs. There were a few however who thought that there could still be improvements and missed the natural effect of wood.
Now, you can have the best of both worlds, with woodgrain effect composite windows and doors! Woodgrain composite is aesthetically alike the hardwood originals but with the easiness of PVCu. Unlike wood they do not expand or contract in the heat/cold and so you never have to worry about them sticking or letting in any draughts, nor do they bend or warp. They are easy to clean, needing only a bucket of soap water and wipe down on the rarest of occasions.
Woodgrain composites look fantastic in period properties as they are so close to the hardwood cousins of the past and therefore retain the character of your home.
Composite windows and doors are made by mixing different materials together to form a rigid structure, designed specifically to solve the problems associated with PVCu and Hardwood, and the outer frame is reinforced with galvanised steel to keep them strong, ensuring they last for decades.
Looking at its best qualities, you can really see why so many people are choosing woodgrain effect composites over any other type of product. It offers you:
- A great look with a classic wood finish
- High insulation performance
- A guarantee of durability
- A fantastic range of colours to suit all needs
- The confidence of security (with Secured by Design approval)
- Simple, easy, and rarely-needed maintenance
