We recently replaced the cupola (or lantern) that adorns the roof of a North Yorkshire property.
The attractive rectangular structure was manufactured in Accoya® timber and spray painted at our own in-house facility. We fitted the most appropriate double-glazed units to maximise thermal efficiency and added quality fixtures and fittings. The result, as you can see, is something of which we are justifiably proud.
A cupola is usually an attractive addition to the roof and skyline of any building, but they also have a functional purpose. Cupolas are designed to let in natural light to otherwise dark areas and to improve ventilation.
We care about the environment, and that is one of the reasons we use Accoya® when manufacturing our products. ‘Accoya is a modified timber which has been through a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology that enables it to resist rot, defy the elements, and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years when in the ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable’. See our video to learn more about Accoya® understand why our timber frames can be carbon negative over their full life cycle.
We are now back in production at our Kirby Misperton workshop – manufacturing timber products and taking new customer orders. The above image shows a door and frame currently being prepared for a customer premises to the west of York. We designed the door to meet the customer’s own specification. The door and frame were painted at our in-house spraying facility, as an integral part of the production process.
One of our installation teams will be fitting the door and frame soon. We passionately believe the best way to achieve real quality is to control the entire process from receiving the raw timber to fitting the final polished product in our customers’ homes.
We manufactured and fitted the double doors in the above photograph. Accoya timber was used throughout because of its extreme durability. We have a short video on our website, which explains all the benefits of Accoya. We spray painted the doors during our integrated manufacturing process. Painting wooden products (during manufacture) makes so much sense because the exposed wood is sealed and weather-protected prior when we finish the installation. There is no need to wait for the next dry day to paint external woodwork with Ryedale Joinery products – a considerable benefit, given Britain’s cool wet winters and warm wet summers.
The above image shows a section of a bow window we manufactured and double glazed for a customer on the North Yorkshire coast. The majority of our customers specify timber windows because they want to retain the traditional character of their properties – but they also want the considerable benefits of double-glazed windows. We can manufacture most types of timber window to take quality double-glazed units and offer a complete sash window upgrade package (for vertical sliding sashes).
