The Benefits of Softwood Window Frames

by Francesca Coleman Carr

At Sash Windows London Ltd, we know how important choosing the right windows can be. After all, every property has its own character and you want windows that complement your home.

We sell and install a variety of hardwood and softwood windows in the UK for our customers. You can choose from a variety of window styles, colours, and finishes, ensuring that the windows we install are the perfect fit for your home. But before we discuss the products we sell, we need to explain what softwood is and why it’s such a popular choice for many homeowners.

Softwood vs Hardwood Windows

The differences between hardwood and softwood really come down to the origin of the timber. Each tree species is unique and is characterised by its grain, texture, and aesthetic – all of which have their own benefits.

What is Softwood?

Sash Windows BromleySoftwood is a type of timber that is a popular choice for both contemporary and period-style properties. If you want timber sash windows but you have a limited budget, our softwood sash windows are an affordable option. Softwood is usually painted, but it can also be stained. There are many benefits of softwood.

Workability: softwood is an easy timber to work with and is widely used across a broad range of applications.

Sustainable: softwood is sustainable as softwood trees grow much faster than hardwood, so they are considered to be more environmentally friendly.

Softwood Window Prices: softwood timber windows tend to be a more affordable option than hardwood wooden windows as the timber is easier to source. If you would like to discuss the prices of our softwood windows, give us a call today. We would be more than happy to provide you with a quote.

Why Choose Softwood Double Glazed Windows?

They’re versatile, durable, aesthetically pleasing, and when properly looked after, they can last a lifetime!
