When it has 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.

Our timber window styles

At Everest, we offer wooden windows in two different styles.

Sliding Sash Windows →

Vertical sliding sash is a classic English window style. Its 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 an advanced timber treatment result in easy operation with no sticking, wobbling or rattling.

  • Retains the charm of period homes
  • Smooth running technology
  • Range of traditional hardware in brass or steel
  • Finger jointed to prevent ‘jams and wobbles’ for smooth running

Casement Windows →

Choose a timber casement window for a simpler design with hinged opening 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.

  • Stylish and contemporary
  • Range of paints and stains for low maintenance
  • Steel hardware in a range of colours
  • Manual opening only

Choice of timber

We offer sustainably sourced softwood (European Redwood) and hardwood (Red Grandis), both of which are accredited by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). Our wood is laminated with layers of timber are bonded together removing imperfections and adding strength and rigidity. For even further durability our softwood is finger jointed to eradicate knots and resist twisting.


Sightlines

Traditional framing options give you a choice of equal sightlines for a balanced look, while contemporary allows panes and openings to vary in size.


Flush profile

Designed with the sash sitting flat and flush with the surrounding frame offering sleek lines and providing a simple yet elegant aesthetic. Flush windows are becoming increasingly popular with contemporary properties where homeowners prefer the simplistic, smooth façade this window design provides.


Bay configuration

A bay window is an arrangement of three or more individual window units. A bay window adds a projection to the wall which can be stood in, adding a stylish look from the outside and a great place to sit and relax on the inside.

Sash horns

On the underside of the top sash section, there is an optional component known as a horn. There are two types available: plant on horns and through horns. Through horns offer a richer more authentic aesthetic with the bottom section ‘butting’ against the side sections.

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.

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.





Timber window FAQs

At Everest, we understand that choosing new timber windows can be a daunting task. So to help you here are some frequently asked questions 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.
