The mod­ern con­struc­tion mar­ket offers con­sumers sev­er­al types of win­dows. But the tough­est com­pe­ti­tion occurs between plas­tic and wood­en coun­ter­parts.

Which win­dows to choose for the house?

With the advent of the lat­est tech­nolo­gies in the econ­o­my, plas­tic win­dows quick­ly gained pop­u­lar­i­ty among con­sumers. They came to replace the out­dat­ed “car­pen­try”, which, in addi­tion to nat­ur­al wood, had only flaws. There­fore, out­ward­ly beau­ti­ful plas­tic began to be used for wide­spread glaz­ing of premis­es. Such frames have a num­ber of advan­tages: a rather aes­thet­ic appear­ance, they are easy to clean and do a good job with their direct func­tions.

With prop­er instal­la­tion and high-qual­i­ty pro­duc­tion, plas­tic win­dows are sev­er­al lev­els bet­ter than out­dat­ed Sovi­et mod­els. But over time, prod­ucts appeared on the mar­ket that are supe­ri­or in qual­i­ty to plas­tic sam­ples — these are wood­en win­dows with dou­ble-glazed win­dows. They are deprived of the main dis­ad­van­tages of plas­tic win­dows. For exam­ple, they do not let in cold and mois­ture (like plas­tic win­dows), but unlike the lat­ter, they can “breathe”. With them, the air does not stag­nate in the room, there is no stuffi­ness and, as a result, the pres­ence of con­stant cozi­ness, com­fort and a favor­able micro­cli­mate, as evi­denced by indoor plants that take root many times bet­ter on wood­en win­dows.

Why is it bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to wood­en win­dows?

Anoth­er advan­tage of nat­ur­al mate­r­i­al over arti­fi­cial is envi­ron­men­tal friend­li­ness. No mat­ter how far mod­ern tech­nolo­gies go, it is not yet pos­si­ble to cre­ate mate­r­i­al that is favor­able for peo­ple. With con­stant expo­sure to sun­light, plas­tic releas­es micropar­ti­cles of chem­i­cals that are in no way ben­e­fi­cial to human health. The tree, on the con­trary, helps to breathe and def­i­nite­ly can­not cause any harm.

The next prob­lem for plas­tic and an advan­tage for wood is the elim­i­na­tion of mechan­i­cal dam­age to the mate­r­i­al. If a dou­ble-glazed win­dow can be replaced, then scratch­es and oth­er dam­age on it can­not be repaired. On wood win­dows, minor dam­age is gen­er­al­ly dif­fi­cult to notice, but if detect­ed, all these flaws can be sand­ed.

Win­dows from any mate­r­i­al can be both high and low qual­i­ty. This ques­tion com­plete­ly depends on the con­science of the man­u­fac­tur­er and what tech­nolo­gies and mate­ri­als he uses. That is why the choice of a man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­ny must be approached with all respon­si­bil­i­ty. After all, cus­tomers need wood­en win­dows with dou­ble-glazed win­dows, the price of which will not be too high, but the qual­i­ty is decent.
