The Wood Window Alliance

Not all wood windows are made to the same standards. That’s why we formed the Wood Window Alliance. When you specify WWA timber, modified timber, or aluminium-clad windows and doors from one of our members, you’ll know they meet our strict performance, quality and sustainability standards. They are backed by Service Life, Whole Life Cost and LCA evidence, and unbeatable warranties.
