Timber Windows Advice

Are you in the right frame of mind?

Grace Kelly and Jackie O were doyennes of understated elegance. They defined timeless glamour and their style is still revered the world over.

Certain looks and materials transcend current tastes. Be it a Chanel suit, a huge pair of sunglasses or even an essential home staple, some products have a lasting quality that continue to inspire new generations.

Despite mass market competition, the performance, energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal of modern timber windows, have retained their popularity with homeowners seeking a high end, classic finish. 

Choosing the right style

Windows can make or break a successful construction or refurbishment project, particularly in older or period homes. JELD-WEN offers a variety of timbers and finishes to help you achieve a look that other materials can't replicate.

Whether you are creating your own modern classic, refurbishing a Victorian villa or breathing new life into a cosy country cottage, our timber windows offer you an enviable choice of opening and glazing options that will complement your home, whilst providing all of the benefits you would expect from a new installation. 

Naturally the best

Our double and triple glazed windows are available in standard and bespoke sizes to fit your exacting requirements. We also offer a range of timbers and security details that are approved by the Secured by Design scheme to ensure your home looks stunning and operates efficiently.

All JELD-WEN windows are available with a choice of glazing options, such as energy saving and acoustic glass. The Stormsure casement offers first class A-rated specification options whilst our high performance DreamVu™ range has U values as low as 0.7W/m²K.

As part of the Wood Window Alliance (WWA), we are committed to driving up industry standards by promoting the sustainability and beauty of timber. As a result, all WWA members' windows now have a minimum estimated service life of 60 years.

Our products are manufactured in the UK from wood sourced from Chain of Custody certified forests. This naturally insulating material helps to save you money by retaining heat and lowering your home's carbon emissions.    

An investment in quality

It is a common misconception that timber windows are high maintenance, but thanks to advances in manufacturing, this is no longer the case.

Our frames are treated to protect against rot and fungal decay, in fact, we're so confident they'll stand the test of time that we guarantee our frames for 40 years. Our Hi-Build factory finished paints are guaranteed for up to 10 years! 

Everyone is looking for low maintenance windows with industry leading warranties, but if you also want a luxury product that will offer enduring style and performance, your decision is made. With the proper care, timber windows are an investment that will last a lifetime.
