The question is: which double glazing window is better?

Insulation will help to reduce the amount of energy you use to heat up your home – therefore reducing your energy bills!
Timber framed double glazing windows can last up to sixty years (when installed and maintained correctly) meaning that you can be sure to get the most out of your new windows.
Getting timber windows is a great way to enhance the atmosphere in your home, and show off a homely, cottage feeling. You can get a number of different paints and varnishes to add to your timber frames, making them look even more perfect.
Timber double glazing windows are great, but how do they match up against aluminium windows?

Many might think that aluminium double glazing windows are bad insulators. In the past this was true. However, modern technology has enabled ‘thermal breaks‘ to be put into the frames. These breaks help to insulate your home, keeping heat in, and your energy bill down.
Aluminium windows are a fantastic way to add a modern look to your home. They also create a sleek, professional atmosphere.
