Timber or wooden windows and conservatories are still a popular choice and probably provide the most flexibility in terms of style and choice. They are also more environmentally friendly than any other window product, due to forest management schemes working throughout the world.
Almost any design or detail can be reproduced (proving ideal for many listed buildings) and a variety of stained or painted finishes can be used. Modern paints ensure that the maintenance of wooden windows is less of an issue than it used to be.
Crittall Installation Services use versatile hardwoods to ensure a long product lifespan. All wood types have good thermal qualities and all Crittall timber windows and conservatories can incorporate the benefits of double glazing.
The timber we use is obtained from sustainable plantation sources.
Selected sections are used for a combination of strength, durability, machining flexibility and an ability to accept a wide range of finishes.
The timber is naturally resistent to wood rot and fungal attack and the natural oils present in the timber make it resistant to moisture penetration.
