Timber Alternative Windows
D&M windows keep your home warm, quiet,secure and authentic plus you will find that our uPVC Timber Alternative Windows are virtually maintenance free meaning you can enjoy them with little or no fuss for many years to come.
We offer a wide range of designs and colours as we appreciate that each property and era have specific requirements that cannot be satisfied with a ‘one for all window’.
Our timber alternative windows stand out on its own with a quality of finish that is unsurpassed.
The designers set out to duplicate a timber window for the timber market, not to make a plastic window with a wood grained finish for the uPVC market. A window that looks like timber with the detail of timber and the soft soulful finish of timber but maintenance free, a draft proof, energy efficient window that will open and close without sticking 52 weeks a year and will never need painting.
All the advantages of a maintenance free window but with no compromise on style, character, property value and pride of ownership.
The frames are enhanced with a more traditional mechanically butt jointed outer frame, vertical mullion and horizontal transom section to replicate traditional timber window manufacturing processes. All frames have a timber grained finish in white, cream, black, Rosewood, Agate Grey, Olive Grey or any RAL colour that you require. The internal edges on the outer frames are all ovalo with the exact detail of a timber window.
The opening and dummy sashes have been designed using a timber sash as a model. The external edges are a pencil round finish with a putty line edge to the glass. The only part of the window that is welded is the casement sash using specially designed and patented machinery, the result is the neatest flat mitred joint available with no unsightly grooved corners.
45mm depth sills provide the correct architectural substance for a character of your property and complete the whole timber alternative package.
The Georgian & cottage glazing bars are all precision cut by hand and are an exact duplication of a timber glazing bar. The external bars have a putty line whilst the internal bars are ovolo. The glazing bars are available in both 20mm & 36mm options.
The range offers some of the most desirable furniture available on any window system including contemporary, monkey tail, bulb end and period styles in cast and wrought iron in a range of colours.
You will be pleasantly surprised at how competitively priced our timber alternative windows are in comparison to our bespoke timber range, sometimes up to 50% less.
Many of our customers mix the two, choosing a bespoke hardwood entrance door and our timber alternative windows.
