Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and read on to learn more. 

Timber Alternative Windows Are Natural Insulators of Heat 

One of the key benefits of a timber alternative window is that it is a strong insulator of heat. This reduces your carbon footprint, helping you do your bit for the environment. It is made from uPVC, which is a cost effective plastic that is suitable for homeowners who are on a budget. As well as giving you the natural look of wood, it is a sustainable and natural material. 

Furthermore, we offer a design that is suitable for triple glazing, which gives even more security and thermal efficiency over time.

Timber Alternative Windows are Easy To Look After 

With many homeowners in Bristol leading busy lifestyles, you can feel assured that our timber alternative windows are extremely low maintenance. The only thing that you have to do is wash it with water and a damp cloth, ensuring it looks in fantastic condition in the long term. 

Our designs stand out as they are powder coated and durable, ensuring they will withstand the toughest weather conditions. As a result, you’ll get a hassle free finish that will last for many years. 

Slim Sightlines Offer Large Glazed Areas And Stunning Panoramic Views 

If you are looking to combine the natural look of timber with beautiful views, our alternative timber windows could be the right choice for your needs. The large panels give you slim sightlines, delivering clear and fantastic panoramic views. This helps you make the most of natural light while bringing you closer to your garden. Perfect to brighten up a darkened room.  

What’s more, the amount of natural light in your room will save on heating bills, helping spend money on the things that matter to you. 

Aluminium Windows Offer Plenty of Strength 

You might be wondering why you should choose aluminium windows for your property in Bristol. One of the biggest benefits is that they support large glazing panels without the need for mullions to hold them into place. 

In comparison to timber alternative windows, aluminium windows offer the best choice for holding triple glazed patterns. The window’s inherent strength holds more glass,  resulting in a narrow and clean look. Aluminium windows are powder coated, making them so robust that they won’t warp or fade in extreme temperatures. As winter approaches, it is vital that you choose a window that makes your home warmer and comfortable.

Aluminum Windows are Environmentally Friendly

An aluminium window is one of the most environmentally friendly windows on the market, giving you outstanding levels of natural light on your property. As fantastic insulators, the windows are designated so your central heating doesn’t have to work as hard. 

Aluminium is one of the easiest materials to recycle too. Once it reaches the end of its lifespan, feel confident that it will be reused as something new. A perfect material for the environment. 

Aluminium Windows are stylish and available in many colours 

At Panoramic we offer a wide selection of powder coated RAL colours that work well with all our aluminium windows. They are available in a range of styles such as tilt and turn and casement, giving the user plenty of choices. 

We give you the choice of bright or muted colours that complement your home. Our bespoke service even offers a dual-colour finish if you want something to match your interior property. Whatever you go for, we have something that’s right for you.
