Wood Windows Event 13 March 2018 Modern, well-made wood windows will typically out-perform plastic alternatives. Wood windows are commonly used in self-build projects, high-end private developments or in conservation areas. Woodknowledge Wales would like wooden windows to become the default choice for most housing projects in Wales.

This is the first event of three and kicks off the Woodknowledge Wales Campaign for Wood Windows. The aim of this half-day knowledge event will be to explore the benefits of wood windows, and seeks to address the perceptions currently limiting their use in volume housing projects.

The event will cover how appropriate building design, good window manufacturing practices, and the use of quality timber are essential to years of trouble free performance. Experts will address the state of the art in window manufacturing, the up front and whole life costs, energy performance, the question of maintenance as well as the environmental benefits.

Provisional programme available here.

The event is free for Woodknoledge Wales Members (2 per organisation) but places must be reserved via Eventbrite.  If you are not a member of WKW there is a small charge of £35 to attend.
