Solid Wood Windows Made in Devon
Combining traditional methods applied over 90 years of trading from our base in North Devon with complementary modern methods and materials, we are able to offer excellent quality wooden windows made in our Devon workshop. Wood has proven itself over many hundreds of years as an ideal medium for making quality windows. Our solid wood windows can include:
Durable and Sustainable Hardwoods such as Red Grandis or Oak
Durable and Sustainable Softwoods such as Accoya
Factory Finishing in Paint or Stain
Custom Made to Unique Profiles
Single Glazing for Listed Buildings
Slimline Glazing for Heritage Projects
Windows are often described as the “eyes of a house” and choosing to have quality replacement wooden windows makes a real difference to the balance of any building. As well as looking perfect for those heritage settings, wood windows look perfect in contemporary settings. The three main groupings of windows are flush fitting casement, stormproof casement and sliding sash.
We supply and install our wooden windows across North Devon. This includes a visit to discuss what’s required and offer advice. Measure and assess what is required. We then provide a proposal for you to consider. We can also supply our windows on a supply only basis for you or your chosen contractor to install and have worked with a range of contractors in the North Devon area.
To ensure we have a long term supply of wood into the future, we have moved to timbers such as Red Grandis and Accoya along with old favorites such as Oak. These timbers are plantation grown from well managed-forests, durable and offer an excellent choice for making windows while avoiding damaging our precious forests. Wood is a genuinely renewable resource!
We encourage clients to have their wooden windows factory finished. This involves having all the glazing and painting completed in our workshop before windows are delivered or installed. This ensures that durability and stability are maximised. However, we are happy to provide our wooden windows primed for our clients to apply coatings themselves.
Wooden windows can be tailored with a wide range of ironmongery. From tried and true stays and fasteners, to multipoint locking systems. With regard to security, we make can make wooden windows that comply with Part Q of the Building Regulations. Not only are these secure windows good for new builds and change of use situations, they are a good consideration for any replacement window too.
Working with you, we pick glass that is appropriate to the wooden windows you need. We use highly efficient double glazing featuring energy saving coatings such as Planitherm Total +, gas filling and warm edge spacer bars. For more historically sensitive projects single glazing with face putty, slim double glazing or leaded lights can be used.
