Comparing with PVC.
It has been suggested that timber can last up to 60 years, however studies have shown that with regards to PVC, the PVC’s lasting period is only that of around 35 years in comparison. There is an exhaustive amounts of flexibility within the product’s timber. Timber allows users to create unique details, create designs, and allow you to easily amend changes/modifications. Using timber also allows users to change the colour and appearances. It is often hard to change the colours of PVC for instance, because of the white properties, making it difficult to repaint; this is not the case with timber.
With regards to the structure, timber is predominantly a performance based material which has good levels of strength, more so compared to PVC. The timber’s strength and screw retention therefore makes it ideal for doors and window frames alike.
Timber, as mentioned before, has natural properties and gives a natural effect, more so than plastic and the plastic PVC. As a result of being made from natural materials, the products have high durability and allows consumers to personally design the product and attune it to how they would like it. Lastly, timber is extremely stable, and the timber and varnish does not rot.
As a result of choosing timber, you have already impacted your property due to its natural insulations and carbon storage capacity. As mentioned before, Timber is completely renewable, and can easily be re-used for the purpose of fuel or recycling. Timber is also, as mentioned before, biodegradable and allows consumers to play their part in reducing their carbon footprint. Using PVC or Aluminium to create window components creates large amounts of CO2, as a result of this and the renewability of timber, the use of timber within products is much more desired.
