What are Wood Effect Windows?

10 May 2021

What are wood effect windows? To put it simply, wood effect windows are uPVC framed windows with the appearance of a timber frame. This means that although they appear wooden, they are in actuality built with a uPVC profile, which is an Un-plasticised Poly Vinyl Chloride. This means that they are incredibly durable and sport significant life spans. They can weather the worst outdoor conditions and retain their gorgeous look without compromise.

Utilising the classic look and the durability of uPVC frames, wood effect doors can come in a variety of styles that are perfect for traditional or heritage homes, maintaining the aesthetic of the buildings. They are also a superb choice for those looking to add a traditional piece to their modern homes to emanate that classic feel. Such styles include:

  • Flush Sash: A minimalistic design outlined with beautiful timber frames that sport high-quality Deceuninck uPVC profiles.
