Timber vs Aluminium
Timber is favoured in many residential applications as it is considered warm, classical and flexible as a building material. From a thermal point of view, timber-framed windows perform extremely well. In fact, due to the excellent thermal properties of timber, timber windows rate a full star better than aluminium in reducing winter heat loss.
