Am about to embark on fitting new windows to our house, they are Idigbo hardwood and are totally untreated, so need some kind of protection, also double glazed and I am finding it all a bit confusing regarding some finishes could compromise the seals on the double glazing apparently .
Thoughts,recommendations and advice greatly appreciated

the compromise the seal issue is the thing to get right ,

as to the wood ,setting oils such as boiled linseed are good as they are waterproof ,breathable and fairly stable but check with the manufacturers specs re what oils /solvents etc could mess up the dg units

Osmo do loads of eco friendly finishes that have a good rep for durability
