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 Village Stores and Post Office in Ampleforth, North Yorkshire. The upper-floor has upgraded sash windows with 14mm Planitherm double-glazed units, spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes fitted to the frames, jambs and meeting rails to minimize heat loss. The ground-floor windows contain the customer’s own artwork. All of the windows were manufactured in the extremely durable Accoya® timber.
Ampleforth Village Store really is a “one stop” shop. Its comprehensive offering includes a post office, news agency, off license, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables.
We recently upgraded and double glazed the sash windows at the above property in North Yorkshire. The new sashes were manufactured in Accoya® and coupled with 18mm Planitherm double-glazed units to improve thermal insulation. The old sash cords and weights were replaced with a modern spiral balance system to offset the additional weight of the 18mm double-glazed units. We also fitted seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to further reduce heat loss.
The windows were painted during the manufacturing process in our own spray-painting facility. Paint is essential to protect new wood and spray painting is cost-effective during manufacture. It makes good economic sense to have windows manufactured, painted, sealed and finished by just one company.
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.
We upgraded and double-glazed the windows at the above Victorian house in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Accoya® timber was used to craft new sashes and frames. We always recommend Accoya® because is a dimensionally stable wood with outstanding durability – and guaranteed for 50 years when used above ground. Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) sealed units were used to double glaze the sashes.
