Sash Window Upgrades

Traditional Victorian bay window containing three sash windows upgraded and double-glazed by Ryedale Joinery.

Upgraded Timber Sash Windows

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.  


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.

Bespoke Joinery and Double Glazing for York Customer

A quality house extension featuring two bi-folding sliding door systems in Accoya wood.
Quality Bi-folding Doors and Double-Glazing

We manufactured the bi-folding door systems and windows above for a customer in York.  All of the woodwork was constructed and spray painted in our workshop at Rillington before being dismantled and transported to York for installation.

Accoya® was used for the woodwork.  Planitherm double-glazed units were used to glaze the construction.  A Centor sliding-door system and track was fitted to ensure the bi-folding doors would move with just fingertip touch.
