                              You’d be forgiven for having a look at the title of this article and having a little chuckle to yourself, thinking we’ve completely lost the plot! Surely softwood is soft and hardwood is hard, no? It can’t be much simpler than that, you might think. But no, the terms softwood and hardwood timber don’t refer to the density or hardness…

                                A lot of people associate the idea of a Conservatory with a cheap looking, over-fussy extension that is out of date, too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

One only has to visit some of the stately homes, listed buildings and old houses to find the evidence! So why has timber and timber windows come in for such bad press, and what is the reality today? Before we look at this directly, let’s…

                                        Most of us inherit our windows from the previous home owner and if we’re lucky, the windows are perfectly fine.
