Wooden Sash Windows, double-glazed and Upgraded by Ryedale Joinery, available to customers in York.

We continue to supply and install our wooden sash windows to customers in York and the surrounding areas. You can keep the traditional look of your home and improve its thermal efficiency by upgrading your windows. Fitting energy efficient double-glazed units is a recognised means of reducing energy bills and external noise. We use Accoya® timber when manufacturing wooden windows because of its guaranteed longevity and green credentials.

Accoya timber recommended by Ryedale Joinery

Accoya long-lasting wood has a 50-year warranty for ‘above ground’ applications. We always recommend Accoya to our customers.

Accoya and Tricoya Woodwork

We manufactured and installed the above external door at a property in North Yorkshire.

The woodwork is in Accoya and Tricoya timber. Those modified timber types provide extreme durability, which is ideal for the British climate.  We have a short video on our website, which explains all the benefits of Accoya.

The door was spray painted and pre-finished at our own in-house spraying facility at Kirby Misperton.  Painting wooden products (during manufacture) makes sense because the exposed wood is sealed and weather-protected before installation.

Double Glazing

The satin glass is in quality double-glazed units. The ironwork consists of Astra chrome handles and a satin-chrome letterbox.

A quality external door makes a considerable difference to the visual impact of a property.  It is the first thing visitors see and the last thing as they leave.

Sash and Casement Windows

We use traditional craft skills to manufacture and install a wide range of timber products – including sash windows, casement windows, and period doors. Our joinery manufacturing is undertaken by qualified craftsmen and guaranteed.

Roof Top Style

We recently replaced the cupola (or lantern) that adorns the roof of a North Yorkshire property. 

The attractive rectangular structure was manufactured in Accoya® timber and spray painted at our own in-house facility.  We fitted the most appropriate double-glazed units to maximise thermal efficiency and added quality fixtures and fittings.  The result, as you can see, is something of which we are justifiably proud.

A cupola is usually an attractive addition to the roof and skyline of any building, but they also have a functional purpose.  Cupolas are designed to let in natural light to otherwise dark areas and to improve ventilation.   

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 when in the ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable’. See our video to learn more about Accoya® understand why our timber frames can be carbon negative over their full life cycle.
