“Are Hardwood Windows Superior to UPVC?”

uPVC vs Wood Products

Seaton Joinery Ltd specializes in the manufacture and installation of high-quality hardwood windows, and we believe that these windows are superior to those made from UPVC in several ways.

Durability: Hardwood windows are much more durable than UPVC windows. Hardwood is a natural material that is resistant to rot, decay, and insect infestation, making it a great choice for long-term use. UPVC windows, on the other hand, are made from plastic and are more susceptible to warping, cracking, and discoloration over time.

Appearance: Hardwood windows have a timeless, classic appearance that adds warmth and character to any home. They are available in a variety of finishes, including natural wood, stained, or painted, which can be customized to match the aesthetic of your home. UPVC windows, however, have a more synthetic, manufactured look that may not be as appealing to some homeowners.

Energy Efficiency: Hardwood windows can be just as energy efficient as UPVC windows, if not more so. With proper installation and weatherstripping, hardwood windows can provide excellent insulation to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Additionally, hardwood windows can be fitted with double or triple-paned glass, which can improve their energy efficiency even more.

Environmental Impact: Hardwood windows have a lower environmental impact than UPVC windows. Hardwood is a renewable resource that can be sustainably harvested, while UPVC is made from non-renewable petroleum products. Additionally, hardwood windows can be repaired or refurbished, which extends their life and reduces the need for them to be replaced. UPVC windows, however, are not easily recyclable and often end up in landfills when they reach the end of their lifespan.

Seaton Joinery Ltd has been providing high-quality hardwood windows for over a decade. We use only the finest materials and our team of skilled craftsmen will ensure that your new windows will be installed correctly and will look great for years to come. If you’re looking for windows that are durable, beautiful, energy-efficient, and environmentally-friendly, then hardwood windows are the perfect choice.
