There’s nothing quite like the natural finish and feel of a timber window. If you’ve made the decision to go for this desirable choice for your for renovation, extension, or replacement windows it pays to consider the best. Even in larger homes, developers often install painted softwood windows to keep costs down.
We always recommended hardwood windows as the first choice. Softwood windows require careful maintenance to prolong their life, and once deterioration has stared they can be difficult to repair. Hardwood windows from Halo are all factory finished in 3 coats of microporous paint which lets the timber breathe.
Hardwood itself has a much longer life than softwood. Painting intervals will depend on location and weather conditions, but as a general rule your hardwood timber windows from Halo will last for years with very little maintenance.
