Guide To Wood Effect Double Glazing

For homeowners who love the classic elegance of heritage styles, replacing aging timber windows can pose a conundrum. Do you sacrifice traditional timber style for modern uPVC performance, or compromise on practicality for period aesthetics?

Fortunately, with the advancement of technology in double glazing there is a solution: wood effect uPVC windows.


Why opt for wood effect uPVC instead of timber?

In recent years, wood effect uPVC has stolen the spotlight from timber. While traditional timber frames offer heritage aesthetics that appeal to many, there are benefits to choosing modern materials like uPVC.

Unlike real timber, uPVC boasts superior durability, resisting warping, cracking, and rotting – even when exposed to harsh weather. uPVC also requires minimal upkeep to maintain its finish and performance.

Wood effect uPVC truly offers the best of both worlds!


Do timber effect window finishes look real?

Modern wood effect finishes for uPVC windows can be exceptionally realistic, replicating the grain and texture of real wood with impressive detail.

At Timberlook, we offer a range of high quality timber effect foils for our flush sash windows including traditional classics such as Irish Oak and Rosewood. We also offer sophisticated heritage-inspired colours like Pebble Grey and Painswick!


Energy efficient wood effect windows

Wood effect windows aren’t just all style and no substance; windows such as these are made with insulating uPVC frames, which means your wood effect double glazing will offer exceptional levels of energy efficiency.

Our Timberlook flush sash casement windows can reach U-values as low as 1.2. This means that choosing Timberlook for your new windows means comfortable, consistent temperatures in your home, reduced energy consumption and lower heating bills!


The perfect finishing touches to your wood grain effect uPVC windows

Timber effect foils look best when perfectly complemented by heritage hardware and cill options. At Timberlook, we offer a range of customiseable options that you can add to your wood effect double glazing, such as the deeper cills that are often seen in historical window designs.

We also have a range of elegant hardware options, such as classic ‘peardrop’ and ‘monkeytail’ handles in textured finishes to bring your wood effect windows to life.



Complete the look: heritage flush sash doors

As well as wood effect double glazed windows, we also offer both flush French door and single door options– the perfect doors to complement your heritage windows. Crafted with discreet hinges to maintain traditional aesthetics, our Timberlook door system comes in the same range of colours and finishes as our flush sash windows.
