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.
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.
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.
The above photograph shows a made-to-measure front door we manufactured and installed for a customer in North Yorkshire. We used Accoya timber for both the door and frame. The glass panels are double-glazed with quality gas-filled sealed units. Sealant strips and brushes are fitted to the door in order to minimize heat loss and provide comfort for the occupants. The door was spray painted in a Farrow & Ball colour at our own painting facility during the manufacturing process. We use traditional methods to craft doors and can replicate any Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian style to match the original doors in any period property or listed building.
We manufactured new windows for the above North Yorkshire property. The new windows are double-glazed and, of course, in Accoya wood to ensure longevity and real value for money. We spray painted the windows during our manufacturing process. Pre-painting timber ensures our products are completely sealed and protected on the day of installation. Traditional timber windows are visually appealing and help maintain the true character of a building.
