Do Timber Windows Add Value To a Property?

Adding value to your home, as well as efficiency? It shouldn’t even be a question! Here’s why timber windows are great for adding value to your property.

A property is likely to be the most significant investment you’ll make in your life, and for a lot of people, you want to be able to add value to it, whether it’s for yourself or someone else. There are lots of ways that you can increase the value of your property. It might be a new kitchen or bathroom, or maybe an extension, but have you ever thought about the value that windows can add? If you’re looking to replace your windows, it’s essential to select correctly, as they can affect the value of your home.

Durability, Sustainability & Efficiency

As a building material, timber has been used for over 10,000 years, so we already know it has excellent characteristics. As a natural insulator, timber makes for excellent window material, helping keep the cold out, but its density also helps with soundproofing. Unlike popular alternatives like uPVC, timber is a sustainable choice when forested in a maintainable manner and following correct protocol. In terms of durability, the fibre construction of timber is ideal for homes, especially for window fittings, as it provides density, which offers strength and ultimate durability in your windows.

Keeping true to your property style

When selling your home, the exterior has to make the first and lasting impression. Ensuring that your windows are in keeping with the rest of the style of your property will help add value. For example, on period style properties, it may be better to invest in timber windows instead of plastic as some estate agents and/or buyers may consider offering lower than what you would like. When purchasing windows with Dale Joinery, we can add small, period extras, such as slim bars, to your window to help them blend seamlessly into a property.

Double Glazing

Alongside having top quality, long-lasting, energy-efficient, and sympathetically styled timber windows, they should also be double glazed, as this can add up to an extra 10% of value to your property. We only use double glazed windows in our products to add to the efficiency of our timber windows.
