Listed Building Sash Windows

Grade II Listed building with new and upgraded sash windows by Ryedale Joinery.
New & Upgraded Timber Sash Windows

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.

Cupola (Lantern) Window: North Yorkshire

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.

Eco Friendly Products

We manufactured the double doors and windows frame set (above) in order to provide our customer with a floor-to-ceiling double-glazed area, which floods natural light into the property whilst simultaneously reducing heat loss from within. All of the woodwork was fabricated with Accoya® timber. The glass units are PLANITHERM Total+ – a high-performance glass that is optimised in order to help windows achieve the highest Window Energy Ratings (WERs).
