Should I use Timber Doors and Windows on a Multi-Plot Development?

Learn more about the benefits of using timber windows and doors on a multi-plot development project!

At Dale Joinery, we take great pride in assisting developers in new build developments across beautifully designed two, three or four-bedroom homes across the UK. New build homes have become increasingly popular over recent years and have grown to be among the favourites for first-time buyers. It’s no surprise how they’ve become a booming sector of the property industry, thanks to their long term guarantees, lower running costs, and community surroundings. For property developers, their primary responsibility is to coordinate all of the activities involved in developing a single property or multiple properties, depending on the scale of their project. 

One major task for developers is to ensure they have the very best people on board for the initial build. This refers to architects, builders, window suppliers, door suppliers, and more. There is no place like home, which is why all new builds need to be built to the highest of standards.

Of course, there are many ways to save money on multi-plot developments, none of which should compromise on the style or quality of the property itself. In this article, we’re going to be focusing on timber windows and timber doors for multi-plot development projects and how they boast an array of features and benefits you can’t ignore.

Why Windows & Doors Matter in Multi-Plot Developments

The installation of windows and doors is a crucial part of any new build, and developers shouldn’t cut corners on things that really matter. Both windows and doors create a focal point in any property, both internally and externally. Although they possess significant aesthetic appeal, they need to offer unparalleled performance and insulate the property well so energy bills won’t be through the roof. Once new windows and doors are installed, it marks the turning point in the project because other trades such as painters, tilers, electricians etc., will be able to start their work. This ultimately streamlines the project, and for everyone involved, they’ll be able to see it come to life on another level.

Why Should You Choose Timber?

Sustainable timber is the best construction material, and here’s why.

It has the lowest embodied energy, which refers to the energy used in its processing, production and transportation, right from the tree to the consumer.

It’s a naturally renewable material.

It’s a highly durable and versatile material. When used in construction, it can last for centuries when well maintained.

It has naturally thermally insulating properties, meaning it’s a much better choice for insulation than brick.

Reasons Why You Should Choose Timber Windows & Doors

It’s no secret that at Dale Joinery, we are huge advocates of sustainability. If you pair that with providing high-quality timber windows and doors that add value, authenticity and long-lasting style to properties - it’s a winning combination. Here are a few reasons why you should choose timber windows and doors if you still need convincing.

Sustainably sourced timber

Sticking and warping is a thing of the past. Engineered timber is guaranteed not to warp or twist. You can find more about this here.

Long lifespan

Both timber windows and doors have an incredibly long lifespan of up to 60 years, almost double the amount of UPVC. These only last from around 10-30 years.

Natural insulator

Timber is a natural insulator, unlike UPVC and aluminium styles, where they rely on multi-layered cores and other elements to provide high insulation. Timber windows and doors can insulate homes naturally. Once the heat is generated inside, it will never escape, and this saves you plenty of money on your energy bills. Furthermore, this reduces your properties carbon footprint so you can stay warm and look after the planet.

Kerb appeal

For developers, they’re going to want to turn heads when people walk or drive by projects they’ve built from the ground up. It’s the same with homeowners, you want your home to have a nice aesthetic appeal that leaves only the best impressions. Timber windows and doors can achieve this and make it stand out from the crowd in only the best way!

Made to measure

For multi-plot developments especially, it can be pretty daunting to measure all sizes and hunt for windows or doors that match their size. At Dale Joinery, all of our doors and windows are made to measure, tailored to your exact requirements. You can save time and potential stress by letting us take care of the hard stuff for you.

Adds value to the property

Last but not least, timber adds value to your property. When it comes to windows, research has illustrated that the average value of a home can increase by 10% if you have double glazed windows installed. Furthermore, this increases the likelihood of selling the property.
