PVC sash windows have become popular in Cambridgeshire in recent decades because they are cheaper than wooden sash windows and also because they do not rot. That said, wooden sash windows have been around for a lot longer and many people still choose them with good reason – they come with lots of benefits. If the time has come for you to choose between PVC and wooden sash windows you should always choose wooden because:
• Wooden sash windows are environment friendly – trees are being planted all the time and there is always plenty of wood. PVC, on the other hand, is harmful to the environment.
• You can do more with wooden sash windows when it comes to design – wood is very versatile and you can have the most intricate designs etched on it.
• What many people do not realize is that wood sash windows will last a lot longer than those made out of PVC. If the wood is carefully selected windows can last for as long as 60 years requiring only a few repairs. PVC lasts for about half that long or even less.
• It is easier to repair wooden sash windows than PVC ones. In fact, with double and triple glazing you will not need to do repairs very often if you choose wooden sash windows. The glazing also makes your home more energy efficient and lowers your power bills.
Although you will pay more for wooden sash windows than you will for PVC sash windows you will do well to choose the former – you will get windows that last for longer, look better and hardly ever require repairs.
