Wooden windows are expensive and will often cost more than Residence windows!
Wooden windows require regular maintenance over the years to keep them looking their best. This upkeep is both time consuming and costly.
The Residence collection finishing layer only needs occasional cleaning with soapy water. No painting or special maintenance required.
The thermal performance or insulation gained from Residence windows will usually outperform a timber window with like for like glass.
Put a Residence window alongside a timber window and ask yourself which is more beautiful? Could you distinguish the material from the kerbside of your home? Which will be more beautiful in 5 years?
If you are replacing windows in an historic house or character property, you may feel inclined to choose wood. Here are some considerations...
Personalise your Residence windows with a choice of handles and peg stays, all sourced in the UK. The individually hand forged Monkey Tail and Pear Drop designs, available in Black or a gorgeous Pewter Patina, are ideal for recreating a traditional period allure. For a more contemporary appearance the Monkey Tail and Tear Drop designs are available in Hardex Gold, Hardex Chrome, Hardex Graphite and Antique Black. The Monkey Tail is also available in the additional colour of Painted White (exclusive to Residence 9).
