I need to replace some of the windows in my house

I am replacing two bay windows at my house, one upstairs and one downstairs. I have a quote for uPVC of €3,000 and another quote for wood of €5,000. Ideally I would prefer the look of the wood, however cost is a very big factor. My main objective in replacing the windows is to achieve better insulation. Can you please advise if there is any difference in the preservation of heat in the house and if I should try to stretch my budget and go for the wood ones. I know the €5,000 would qualify for the 13.5 per cent tax break spread over two years but that isn’t really a factor as cash flow would be my problem.

I have an issue with my attic when the temperature plummets. Should I change the felt on the roof, which would mean removing the tiles?

I have an issue with my attic when the temperature plummets. I upgraded the loft installation two years ago and since then have noticed water droplet build-up on the felt. I have installed ventilation tiles into the roof but the issue still persists. The last solution suggested to me was that I should change the felt on the roof, which would mean removing the tiles. Have you ever heard of this?
