The charm of wood is timeless: with its warmth and its unique characteristics it lends a particular atmosphere and great emotional impact to each room. If this undoubtedly applies to wood furnishings, whether they are in classic or modern style, the same can also be said to windows and doors. A timber window still remains a living thing, indeed, it tells a story and changes over the years, gaining value with the passage of time.
Timber windows: made from a living material of great charm
Wood is not an inert material that never changes from its inception until it is disposed of: it is actually a living material that changes over time. This is how the charm of timber windows comes into being
Why choose a timber window? Because wood is a material that ages well, while retaining its soul and its distinguished grace. Wood has a story to tell, and becomes a unique piece - at one with the building
If other materials, such as aluminum or PVC, do achieve good aesthetic performance in the short term, when put to the test none of these materials can match the performance of wood: in fact, timber windows often have a life cycle spanning many decades and not only retain their distinctive features, but also take on new and unique characteristics depending on the history of the building.
Timber windows: spotlight on quality, design and maintenance
For timber windows to deliver the best performance over the years, three elements are needed: a robust design, quality materials and adequate maintenance, which is even easier than in the past.
Charm, durability, beauty, and performance: timber windows are the bearers a deep soul that has no equal in the world of doors and windows. However, to best express their potential, three different yet basic characteristics must coexist: quality, design and maintenance. Three fundamental elements are needed to achieve not only exceptional performance, but lasting over time as well.
For timber windows to bring out their best features over the years, three elements are needed: quality materials, robust design and adequate maintenance
As for the first point, we have already seen how timber windows stand for a type of quality that lasts over time also thanks to the option of repairing in case of damage without necessarily having to change the whole frame.
This advantage is then coupled with striking design, befitting the building in which the window is fitted, as well as the setting, and of course the necessary routine maintenance, which does not have to be burdensome: modern timber windows require very little care to keep them in excellent condition.
The charm of timber windows in architectural projects
While we may not always realize it, timber windows have often been the centrepiece of splendid architectural projects both in the past and in the present: just look at the array of mansions, villas and stately homes to appreciate their importance
The importance of timber windows as an architectural element is evidenced first and foremost by the way we look at historic buildings, especially the ones that stand out in people's minds all over the world: if we try to recall any of these buildings we have visited, along with the statues and frescoes, our mind's eye will most likely conjure up images of the spectacular windows that adorn the rooms, being an integral part of the building’s charm.
