UK: Timber Windows: Timber Window Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT TIMBER WINDOWS
There are three main types of timber windows: sash windows, casement windows, and French windows. All timber windows may be double glazed. Sash timber windows, which have been popular since the 17th Century, have vertically sliding panels, usually divided into smaller panes with glazing bars. Casement timber windows are side-hung and may be single or in pairs. French timber windows are full height glazed pairs of doors giving access from a room to garden, patio, or balcony. To provide a maintenance free exterior, aluminium-clad timber windows are available. Leading UK suppliers of timber windows are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
