Traditional Windows for Listed Building
The extensive period property above is a grade II listed building. We recently manufactured and installed six new sash windows and upgraded ten more. To comply with local listed building regulations, we used slimline double-glazed units for all glazings. Traditional windows make an essential contribution to the significance of historic buildings. So we always strive to replicate the original historic wooden windows whilst adding double-glazed units to improve thermal efficiency and internal comfort levels.
Timber Durability and Longevity
The window frames and sliding sashes are in Accoya timber. Accoya provides the best value for money because of its durability and guaranteed longevity. To understand more about the importance of Accoya timber and its green credentials, it is worth taking a few minutes to watch the short VIDEO on our website.
Painting Wooden Windows
The wooden window frames and sliding sashes were spray-painted at our Kirby Misperton workshop in North Yorkshire. We paint woodwork during our integrated manufacturing process. Painting wooden products (during manufacture) makes sense because the exposed wood is sealed and weather-protected before installation.
