Compared to the original timber windows of old, timber alternatives from Reddish Joinery come engineered in low-maintenance and easy to look after uPVC material. This means that no longer will classic property homeowners need to spend lots of their time tending to the wooden frames with regular sanding or varnishing. Instead, getting to enjoy a convincing sense of authentic style for many years to come.

These uPVC timber alternatives even work well to match the natural insulation qualities of original timber thanks to multi-chambered frames. These individual chambers sit inside the profile and work better to trap any precious heat that might otherwise escape. Your home will be able to stay stylish but comfortable all year around too.
