Sash Window Double Glazing

Sash Window Upgrades

The image above shows a bay containing three separate sash windows.  We manufactured the new sashes in Accoya® timber and upgraded the windows.  The upgrade included our full double glazing package, spiral balances, seals and brushes.  We also spray painted the woodwork in our own painting facility as part of the manufacturing process.   Our sash window upgrades improve thermal efficiency and make the interior more comfortable.  Ryedale Joinery sash window upgrades are available for all types of sash window, regardless of age or architectural style.

Traditional Craft Skills

Ornate Window Top for Listed Building

The above image shows the top of a huge window during the manufacturing process at our joinery workshop.  The top is part of a special ornate window for a Grade II* listed building.  Grade II* buildings are of special interest and only 5.5% of all listed buildings fall into this category.  We combine skilled people, traditional methods, and quality materials when making our windows.  It gives us great pleasure to see something beautiful emerging from the planks of timber that form the basis of our craft.   

STAINED GLASS DOOR: YORK

Exterior door and frame with stained glass panels.
Period Door with Stained Glass

We made this period front door and frame for a customer in York.  The door and frame are exact replicas of the originals.  We removed the original stained glass and had it encapsulated within sealed double-glazed units to improve overall thermal efficiency.

The woodwork is in Accoya®.  We pre-finished the wood with a light oak stain to mirror the original.  The door has quality brass hardware, a modern multi-point locking mechanism, and Aquamac (AQ21) draught-excluding seals.

It is always regrettable when once beautiful period doors eventually fail, but we can always find a solution.  We use traditional methods to craft doors and can replicate any Georgian, Victorian, or Edwardian style to match the other doors in a period property or listed building.

Sash Window Upgrades at Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Large house with sash windows
Upgraded Sash Windows

We recently upgraded all the sash windows in the above house at Harrogate, North Yorkshire.  We also manufactured and fitted both the external doors.  All the woodwork is in Accoya®.  The woodwork was painted, prior to installation, during our integrated manufacturing process.

The sash windows contain Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) double-glazed units.  Full details of our sash window upgrade package can be found on our sash window upgrades page.

“From the Anvil” ironmongery products complete the package.  We think it is important that window and door ironmongery is fully in keeping with the overall level of quality and craftsmanship.

Stand-up Paddle Board (SUP)

Stand-up Paddle Board

We recently made this stand-up paddle board (SUP).  The inner framework is in Accoya® timber and we used quarter-inch marine ply for the outer layer of the hull.  Lots of sanding and seven coats of varnish produced the glass-like finish you see above.

Measuring 14 feet by 2 feet 6 inches, at the widest point, it is an “all around” board built for stability in the water – which makes it suitable for beginners.  Sea trials were undertaken in Bridlington Bay.
