Engineered Wooden Timber Windows Melton Mowbray
Most people would prefer to replace their windows with wooden products but ultimately choose not to due to the required levels of maintenance including regular painting and staining. However, the good news is that the latest modern high performance double glazed wooden timber windows are now built and manufactured using engineered knot free factory painted / stained timbers which if looked after correctly can last up to 10 years without requiring any redecoration.
What is Engineered Knot Free Factory Finished Wood & Timber?
Engineered knot free timber is where the timber window profile is made up of multiple layers of timber with each layer of grain running in opposite directions. These sections are then laminated together and this forms an incredibly strong and stable piece of timber and hence the resulting timber window will not twist or warp or move like a conventional wooden window.
Alongside this engineering process, the wood that is used has had all of its knots removed due to the fact that a knot is an obvious area of water penetration. Having constructed this very strong and resistant wood profile, the window is then factory painted or stained using the Gori Teknos water based micro porous with 4 factory applied coats that is the equivalent of up to 20 manual coats of paint or stain.
