When it’s got to be timber

Whether it’s the history, the character, its unique finish or the listed building friendly designs, we still love the quality that comes from a high quality wooden window. Let’s not forget wood is exceptionally environmentally friendly and offers the lowest heat conductivity of any frame material.

Choose sash for a traditional look

Vertical sliding sash is the classic English window, popular for over 300 years. It’s practical, space saving vertical opening made it perfect for houses that opened directly onto the street but became widely adopted to add a touch of grandeur. Precision crafting and advanced timber treatment results in easy operation with no sticking, wobbling or rattling.

Choose casement for a simple design

Casement is the simpler window with hinged sashes rather than vertical sliding. With less maintenance and easy operation, they may lack the style and intricate workings of a sliding sash, but they are highly practical.

A perfect marriage of traditional timber with modern double glazing

Timber is a perfect choice for window frames. It's thermally efficient and doesn’t conduct heat or cold. Add in Everest know-how of modern double glazing and you will get an A rated double glazed window. Offering an optimum 20mm Argon filled air gap and low-e internal glass, reflecting heat back into your home, resulting in a window with the beauty of wood but the efficiency of uPVC.

Guaranteed for peace of mind

 

Our Timber Windows are guaranteed against rot and fungus for 30 years. We also provide a 10 year guarantee on the workings of the window and a 5 year guarantee on the finish.

FAQs

Choosing new timber windows can be a daunting task, so to help you here are some popular FAQs which you might find useful.

  • +
    What is a timber window?
    Modern timber windows are still handcrafted but are made using engineered wood technology that increases strength and removes knots that can create weaknesses in the frame. Timber windows are a perfect option for those who live in conservation areas and listed buildings if the design remains sympathetic to the original frames.
  • +
    Can you get double glazed wooden windows?
    Yes wooden double glazed windows are available and make an excellent sustainable alternative to uPVC. Importantly wood does not conduct temperature and so when matched with a high performing double glazed unit can be a very environmental friendly option.
  • +
    Are timber windows cheaper than uPVC?
    Timber windows are more expensive than uPVC due to the additional cost of the materials and the craftsmanship that goes into producing them. If you don't live in a listed or period property it may be worth considering timber windows at the front of the property (to provide the traditional look), but then a more cost effective uPVC window to the rear.
  • +
    What are the benefits of timber windows?
    Timber has a high thermal resistance which helps reduce heat loss and also reduces condensation on timber surfaces. With proper maintenance timber windows can last a long time. Timber frames can be stained or painted so you can easily change the look of your property. Environmentally friendly timber is a renewable resource with a low carbon footprint.
  • +
    What finishes are available on wooden windows?
    Timber windows can be stained or painted. Painting adds a top coat to the wood while a stain penetrates into the timber helping to protect the timber. Paint creates a top coat which keeps the wood out of the elements. When it comes to ageing paint will peel and will need to be rubbed down to re-coat about every 5 years to 10 years a stain wears away gradually and will still need re-coating again about every 5 to 10 years depending on the stain used.

uPVC Wood Effect Windows

Why not consider our uPVC wood effect?

You might be surprised by our wood effect windows. Even with modern paints and stains timber will require some maintenance to ensure they are kept in tip top condition. Our wood effect range looks as good as timber, offers a range of finishes and colours but offers all the low maintenance benefits of uPVC so you can fit and forget.

Everest window reviews

5 star review for garage doors
Everest fitted some hard wood french windows to my lounge on Friday and I am really pleased with the quality and the customer experience. I decided not to go for PVC as the rest of my windows are wooden and they look more in keeping with the style of my property. No pushy sales tactics from Everest and they left us a printed quote so we could think it over in our own time. We had a couple of questions that they answered straight away and the fitters were really friendly, did a good job and left the house tidy. Louise Dolan 6/6/18
