We consider a number of key factors when deciding what timber to use for our new windows and doors.
FACTORS INVOLVED IN CHOOSING THE TIMBER WE USE
- Durability, an essential quality
- Straightness of the grain for stability
- Texture (fine or coarse) – The finer the grain the easier to finish to a high standard
- Availability – Supplies can vary
- Sustainability – We are fully FSC® certified
- Cost – Purchasing timber on the basis of cost is almost always a false economy
Accoya is a sustainably sourced modified wood which is guaranteed against rot above ground for 50 years. Watch the video below to view some of the benefits of Accoya. Alternatively, you can download our Accoya Brochure.
The quality of the timber we use and our joinery construction methods are of paramount importance to the lifespan of your product. We use both modern and traditional construction techniques to ensure the highest standard. We also incorporate the very latest in window and door technology so as to ensure industry leading security, insulation, durability, finish and reliability.
Our new joinery also comes with a 20 year guarantee (Accoya and hardwood only), and our complete new timber windows and doors conform to or exceed relevant building regulation requirements.
New timber doors and timber windows need to be re-painted, or even re-glazed over the years, but if the timber or joinery construction fails the windows or doors will often need replacing. It is therefore very important to use good quality timber which will last. View our guide on identifying the right timber for your windows and doors.
