Modern Softwood Windows

Modern Softwood Windows

Here’s a typical problem with a modern softwood window. Not properly seasoned before being manufactured and decorated leaving moisture trapped inside.

The result is a problem with wet rot in a relatively short period of time. Regular redecoration will not really help alleviate this inherent problem.

If you’re not installing UPVC windows make sure the timber being used has been properly seasoned. It will greatly reduce your long term maintenance costs.
