Educate yourself about the engineered softwood used to manufacture Timber Windows

Softwood Engineered Timber Windows

This is the only softwood that we recommend using as it is ‘engineered’. This is a process where several pieces of softwood are glued together with opposing grain directions to form a single ‘laminated’ piece, this in turn leads to a very stable product, far outperforming solid generic softwoods. Less movement in the wood means that the paint or finish doesn’t have to flex as much, ultimately leading to longer periods between re-finishing and maintenance of your windows.

The process of bonding timber together to create a component that can be used in windows, doors, conservatories or stair cases has been used for over twenty years. However, it has only been in the last ten years that we have seen significant improvements with large European joinery companies investing in the equipment to produce laminated or engineered components in hardwood or softwood to compete against products offered by companies selling UPVC and aluminium clad systems.

The UK window and door market has been dominated by UPVC and composite products for the past 15 years. However, with the increase in availability of laminated timber components this has allowed the larger joinery manufacturers to produce high performance windows and doors in timber that offers a sustainable and attractive alternative to plastic or aluminium.

Why use Engineered Timber?

  • Timber bonded together in thickness and/or width offers greater stability over solid timber. • Wastage is reduced significantly during the manufacturing process, due to specific width and length availability. • Reduced production costs including labour. • Significant improvement in quality (defects removed) • Full utilisation of every component purchased. • Reduced stock holding • Reduction in waste removal.

Obtaining a quote for Timber Windows has never been easier.

The old method of contacting a window company to attend your property and measure up whist providing you there highly polished sales pitch is now redundant in our opinion!

Online sales of everything has taken a huge leap in recent years and buying timber windows is no different.

When customers start their journey for purchasing windows they generally have a very good idea as to which windows they want to buy.

We believe that it is not necessary to attend people’s property and present the highly polished sales pitch in order to put pressure on people to buy windows and doors.

Here at Timber Windows Direct we started sales via EBay and have grown into a very respectable online business.

Customers can roughly measure up their own windows to provide us rough measurements to quote them on – we will then attend the property and complete a full window survey to ensure the production measurements are correct.

This process removes the pressurised sales techniques that some companies use.

www.timberwindows-direct.co.uk provides many photos of our completed projects and the various types of windows that are available to the customer.

 

We are more than happy for our potential customers to come and see us and view our windows prior to placing an order as we are fully aware that some people wish to see the finished product prior to committing to an order, we are based in Bracknell Berkshire so please come and see us if you wish?

 

If you genuinely feel you need to have someone attend your property and conduct a full window survey then please get in touch and we will arrange for someone to attend and measure up but rest assured it will come with help and recommendations but no polished sales pitch!
