Over the years we have worked hard to build up an excellent reputation in the north of England as a supplier of the highest quality products both to the trade and to the general public.
We work very closely with our customers to ensure that we meet their exacting specifications and guarantee that they are thrilled with the final results. We have been manufacturing windows for decades and are proud to say that we still work using traditional methods which is both cost-efficient and much better for the environment than mass manufacture. We are approved installers of Slimlite double glazing which, we believe, is the best double glazing system currently on the market.
Aside from crafting bespoke Windows we also offer many other traditional carpentry services, such as making traditional King post trusses, orangeries and garden rooms. We regularly do design work for our clients to so if you’re not sure exactly what style you’re aiming for, we’re happy to offer our expertise to help find you the perfect solution please contact us to find more about our work.
We pride ourselves on our care, attention to detail, reliability, and personal touch, because we believe that this is what matters to our customers.
We believe that if you put good stuff in, you get good stuff out, which is why we are very particular about our choice of materials. We use the highest quality timber available in a variety of woods, including Accoya, Pine, Sapele, Oak, and unsorted Redwood.
All timber is treated carefully prior to its paint finish, to ensure maximum preservation. Our timber comes exclusively from FSC and PEFC sources, which not only guarantees its sustainability, but also means that each piece of timber can be traced back not only to the place of origin, but the tree itself.
