CPD overview

Join Dr Gillian Menzies as she introduces the Heriot Watt University study into the service life of wood windows, demonstrating that all the timber window options considered had a longer service life than their PVC-U alternatives, You will also gain an insight into the progress of manufacturing techniques, key features of wooden windows that increase their lifespan and statistic reports that support all these statements.
