Advantages of timber windows and doors. Presented Dr Gill Menzies of Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.
These are a series of videos from the Wood Window Alliance, explaining the advantages of timber windows and doors. Presented by respected expert Dr Gill Menzies of Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.
Dr Gill Menzie explains in these 3 videos:
How WWA timber windows are the best value over 60 or more years. And how aluminium-clad and modified wood windows are best value for severe exposure conditions.
Wood windows better long-term value than PVC-u
Shows how all WWA wood-based window frames (timber, modified timber and aluminium-clad-timber) have lower environmental impacts than PVC-u. And how choosing just one WWA timber frame instead of PVC-u saves 160kgs CO2e.
Life Cycle Assessment of WWA timber and timber based windows
How WWA wood window frames can be expected to last around 60 years - and even longer for modified timber or aluminium-clad timber frames.
WWA wood window frames last twice as long as PVC-u
