The period of total enthusiasm for plastic and aluminum windows in our country is coming to an end. We in no way set ourselves the goal of denigrating these products, they serve many people faithfully. But the fact remains.
Wooden windows are gradually returning to the homes of our compatriots. According to research by independent experts, modern wooden windows are more expensive than similar products made of plastic and aluminum, but they will last 30% longer. Thermal insulation indicators: plastic – 8 points, wooden – 10 points. Aesthetically, no windows can compete with wood.
The debate about the level of environmental safety is very heated, reasonable arguments are made in favor of both. Based on all the arguments, the conclusion suggests itself that environmental parameters, the ability to “breathe” depends on the quality of the wood from which the windows are made.
I wonder how things are going abroad, on which windows residents of other countries choose?
From a huge number of analytical articles and reviews of statistical data, it was possible to draw the following conclusions. Manufacturers of many developed countries had to abandon the manufacture of wooden windows and expand the production of plastic ones due to the rise in prices for wood on the market. In countries where construction companies are not experiencing such difficulties, they continue to actively install wooden windows in their homes, increase production and expand the range. Residents of countries with a warm, mild climate prefer to install plastic and aluminum windows. In the Nordic countries, the vast majority of houses are equipped with wooden windows, where thermal insulation plays a decisive role.
This nuance has become common to all – plastic and aluminum windows are massively distributed in the so-called “areas for the poor”. People with a certain income and taking care of their health opt for wooden windows.
Our country is rich in forests, we are able to fully satisfy our needs for all kinds of wooden products in full. Residents of our country can afford the installation of wooden windows. For us, they are a necessity, but not a luxury..
