Hello all,

I have to install new window boards and am wondering what type of wood I should use. Is moisture resistant HDF ok? Or should I use real wood?

Thanks!

Not a good situation for real wood unless you're going to take care of it. Sunshine, condensation, water filled vases, even mugs of tea really don't bode well for solid wood. Painted mr mdf should be fine - though slate slab works really well for older solid wall properties with deep cills.
