Why choose timber windows?
Types of timber
Timber may be a traditional material, but at Everest we apply the latest technology to ensure a truly impressive performance.
There are two kinds of wood used to create an Everest Timber Window – Softwood and Hardwood – both of which come with the same guarantees and are Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited.
Softwood is made from European Redwood and is available in a range of painted finishes.
Hardwood frames are able to be stained, which really highlights the beauty of the natural grains. This is made from Red Grandis wood.
Making our timber windows
Our expert engineering team uses timber to create a solid window structure. To achieve this, our timber goes through a lamination process, where the timber is specially bonded to help it strengthen. This makes it resistant to twisting, which a natural material like timber would otherwise want to do.
The windows are painted and finished to an exceptionally high standard and we use the latest paint technology to achieve a smooth finish.
For our softwood, we use finger jointing technology, which eradicates the wood’s natural desire to knot. This technique makes the joints almost invisible to the naked eye – another great benefit to having an Everest Timber Casement Window.
