We manufacture all types of timber windows, and can replicate any historical wooden window styles for listed properties. Given that our joinery workshop is located close to York, Scarborough and Whitby, we are frequently asked to manufacture and install wood sash windows for customers with Georgian and Victorian window types.
Our customers are often surprised when we explain that it is possible to manufacture double-glazed sash windows in wood. So, there is no need to let your love of traditional timber windows keep you in the cold – let Ryedale Joinery upgrade your sash windows.
We manufactured the double doors and windows frame set (above) in order to provide our customer with a floor-to-ceiling double-glazed area, which floods natural light into the property whilst simultaneously reducing heat loss from within. All of the woodwork was fabricated with Accoya® timber. The glass units are PLANITHERM Total+ – a high-performance glass that is optimised in order to help windows achieve the highest Window Energy Ratings (WERs).
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 in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable’. See our video to learn more about Accoya ® and understand why Accoya window frames can be carbon negative over the full life cycle. ‘Accoya is wood without compromise yet one hundred percent environmentally friendly’.

The above image illustrates some of the sash windows we recently upgraded for a customer at York. The windows are double-glazed with quality 14mm Planitherm sealed units. We also fitted spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to minimize heat loss. Accoya® timber was used to manufacture the new sashes. We spray painted the new sashes in our own painting facility.
