Choose Your Wood-Effect Window Style

Just because wood-effect windows are designed and fabricated to replicate the look of true timber doesn’t mean there aren’t several opportunities to customise. We at Tyneside Home Improvements offer a range of different woodgrain effect finishes, including popular finishes such as Irish Oak and Rosewood, as well as other authentic timber types.

The Traditional Look of Timber in Any Aindow Style

Traditional timber windows were commonly installed in 19th century England in styles such as flush sash and sliding sash windows. At Tyneside Home Improvements we can offer these styles made from low-maintenance uPVC that look authentic but also allow you to enjoy all the security, low maintenance, and energy efficiency benefits of modern uPVC.

At Tyneside Home Improvements, we offer realistic wood-effect finishes for all our uPVC windows. Contact our team today for more information and see how we can bring traditional style and modern performance to your home.



Classic Appearance. Modern Safety.

Our wood-effect windows might look like they’re lifted straight from a 19th-century property, but in terms of security that’s far from the case. All our windows come protected by modern safety features, such as multi-point locking systems and PAS24 accreditation. With wood-effect windows from Tyneside Home Improvements, you’ll be able to enjoy complete peace of mind.

We know that retaining the traditional look of timber windows is a vital feature of our wood-effect windows, but that doesn't come at the expense of security. All of the security hardware on our windows is integrated in a way that doesn’t compromise on protecting your home or spoil the period-correct appearance.
