Yes. Our joinery workshop can match any type of bespoke joinery using a wide range of timbers.
The hardwoods that we use are generally more stable and weather resistant than joinery quality softwoods. All of our softwood windows are manufactured with hardwood cills as it is this component of a window that is subjected to most of the effects of weathering. We would prefer to manufacture exterior doors in hardwood as the door stiles will be more stable and less inclined to warping and movement once fitted. All of our bi-folding door sets are manufactured in hardwood.
Timber is a natural product and is subject to movement when exposed to different conditions such as different temperatures and moisture levels. Some timbers are more stable than others and we can provide advice on the best product for the situation in which you wish to use it. All our timber is stored inside and the moisture content is within British Standard requirements.
We can generally provide advice on any element of your potential joinery project whether it be the style and appearance or the weatherproofing detail and the timber to be used.
I have single glazed timber doors and would like them replaced with double glazed doors is this possible?
Yes, it is possible to manufacture doors to receive double glazed units. There have been many changes to the Part “L” of the building regulations, which refers to the insulation values. doors must now be carried out to ensure that heat loss is kept to a minimum. This relates to any window or door where the total area of glazing which is more than 50% of the overall products, which vary in thickness and technical make-up. This can have an effect on the size of glazing bars and timber profiles generally as these need to be increased to accommodate larger glass sizes. As glazing technology improves there are more and more options available with regard to glazing and we can offer advice and guidance on which will best suit your situation.
There are exemptions to this regulation and where buildings are listed or have historical value it is often worth contacting your local planning or building regulation department to find out whether you need to comply.
