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 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.
We recently manufactured and installed the above arched sash window for a customer in the wider Malton-Pickering area. We used Accoya timber to manufacture the woodwork. Accoya’s outstanding durability and longevity makes it an ideal choice for such an outstanding and elegant window.
The window was manufactured to take quality double-glazed panels. The glazing is a mixture of clear, etched, and coloured glass panels. The overall design is stunning and most appropriate for a period property.
We can upgrade any type of wooden window to improve thermal efficiency and make the property more comfortable. We use traditional methods to craft doors and windows and can replicate any period style to match the originals in any property or listed building.
The above image shows the top section of an arched Georgian sash window. The photo was taken in our workshop during the manufacturing process. The woodwork is in Accoya® timber – an ideal choice because of its outstanding durability (guaranteed for 50 years when used above ground).
It’s always an enormous pleasure to see a beautiful form emerging from raw timber, craft knowledge and skills. We will spray paint the woodwork at our own painting facility towards the end of the manufacturing process. The sash window is destined for a customer in the Malton area.

We have just installed four new windows in the historic Muston Mill at Filey. We often work on old and historic buildings, but this is the first time we have made new windows for a windmill; so we were really pleased to undertake the work.
The current mill structure was built circa 1850 but written evidence indicates windmills have stood at this location since the 14th century. You can find lots of interesting information about Muston Mill on the owners’ website. We wish the owners every success in restoring their mill to its former glory and look forward to eventually seeing the renovated building.
