Durability and maintenance of flush casement windows
When manufactured from quality wood, finished and installed to a high standard, flush casement windows are designed to withstand the test of time ensuring durability and a long lifespan.
At Bereco, we only work with engineered laminated sections of timber to help eradicate the risk of shrinking, warping and twisting. Each section of our timber is carefully treated with a specialist basecoat, before it’s assembled into the window frame. It then goes through a three stage, third party accredited finishing process to achieve maximum longevity.
We’re proud to announce that our timber windows can last up to 60-years which is twice as long as flush casement uPVC windows or aluminium windows.
