Sash Windows and Wooden Window Upgrades – York

Sash Window Upgrades

We continue to provide a specialist sash window service in York and the surrounding areas. We are joinery manufacturers and installers. Consequently, we only produce wooden products, and our preferred timber is Accoya. We have a short video on our website that explains the longevity and sustainability of Accoya timber.

Free E-Book – Sash Window Upgrades

Andrew has written an E-book that explains the Ryedale Joinery approach to upgrading timber sash windows.  The topics covered include double glazing, thermal efficiency, safety glass, spiral balance systems, and our in-house spray painting during the manufacturing process.  The book is easy to understand and contains many examples of wooden windows and doors we have manufactured and installed for domestic customers.

Upgraded Timber Sash Windows

The above image illustrates some of the sash windows we recently upgraded for a customer at York.  The windows are double-glazed with quality 14mm Planitherm sealed units.  We also fitted spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to minimize heat loss. Accoya® timber was used to manufacture the new sashes.  We spray painted the new sashes in our own painting facility.  

STAINED GLASS DOOR: YORK

Period Door with Stained Glass

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.

New Workshop Premises

We are currently looking for new workshop premises in the wider Malton area and exploring various options.  Our continual focus on quality and customer care has helped grow our business.  Consequently, we are now outgrowing our current joiners’ workshop.

Given that our business operation covers the York and Harrogate areas to the west and the Scarborough and Whitby areas to the east, we have decided to remain in the Malton area – it makes good business sense to locate our new workshop as centrally as possible.
