Are insert windows right for my home?
Insert windows and doors provide an affordable solution by replacing old timber windows with new aluminium joinery without compromising the traditional style of your home. You keep the chunky timber look but have modern aluminium windows and doors that have weathertight seals and less ongoing maintenance. However, insert windows cannot be done if the existing wood window frames and sills are rotten or are in poor condition.
