Rehau Bevelled Window Rosewood

An industry classic, the timber window

Supplied, installed and maintained by Somerville Glass and Windows Ltd, Reading's window and door specialists. Read on to learn more about this option for your property.


Undisputed elegancy and style

Timber windows have long been used across our industry, and this environmentally friendly, sustainable solution is slowly growing in popularity once more. The life expectancy of these frames is around 50-70 years, with the possibility to be easily repaired, painted to change the appearance, and reconfigured to include the latest security mechanisms.


Though uPVC comes with many other benefits, these plastic units often end their journey in landfill. Wood, however, can be repurposed making this a more planet-conscious decision for homes and businesses in Reading. Available with single, double and triple glazing, the wood's natural insulating properties lend to its excellent energy efficiency rating, giving you the stunning appearance and uniqueness of natural timber whilst doing what's right for the building.
