For the shed that we have built, they are putting in the window frames in. Should they be made of wood or pvc?
Currently they are putting wooden frames, is this correct or should they be PVC types?

Partner/Mother thinks its a cheap job doing them in wood and aint professional?
What do you think?

don't matter if a shed m8 you can put in wooden frames and you can put in dougle glazed units providing the rebates are designed for double glazing

smallest thickness of glass is 14mm......4mm glass 6mm cavity 4mm glass also known as 4-6-4

and goes 6mm cavity to 8mm,10mm,12mm,14mm,16mm,20mm

let me know if this helps m8

Well it aint really a shed but like a room.
The walls are fully insulated and plastered with plaster boards etc.
Would it still make a difference?

if you put in wooden window frames they would need painting,varnishing or staining when fitted and regularly in the future. upvc are fitted and thats it. i think you definatly want double glazing if the wals are insulated single glaze and you will loose the heat through windows
