    Ready To Start Your Project?

    Here are some projects that
    we take real pride in

    Preserving
    history

    If your home is a listed building or you live in a conservation area any changes should be done with care and with an understanding of the importance of preserving the building. Integrating historic features with modern additions is an art – and one we have plenty of experience in. 

    Any change to a listed building will require consent from the borough council and you can rely on our knowledge and experience to undertake the application. We know how to reassure your local council that any changes will be sympathetic with the original building and will not damage the fabric of the building.

    How We Make
    Our Windows

    Planning

    Phase one

    Forming a flat and straight face and edge onto the sawn timbers.

    Thicknessing

    Phase two

    Bringing timbers to correct width and thickness.

    Setting out

    Phase three

    Marking the positions of any mortice and tenon joints.

    Morticing

    Phase four

    Creation a hole cut out to form part of the mortice and tenon joint.

    Tenoning

    Phase five

    Forming scribed shoulders to fit over the moulding and a tenon to fit into the mortice.

    Spindle moulding

    Phase six

    Creating the glass rebate and required moulding along all lengths of the timbers.

    Hornch

    Phase seven

    The final part of the mortice and tenon joint is the hornch which will give more strength to the joint.

    Assembly

    Phase eight

    Glue and cramps are applied to hold the casement tight, flat and square while wedges are hammered into position to lock the joint in place.

    Shooting in

    Phase nine

    At this stage we shoot in the casements to fit there frames and cut out for required locks and hinges.

    Sanding

    Phase ten

    We prepare the casements by doing any fine filling that is required followed by sanding with 80 and then 120 pads, and we finish by knocking off all edges using nibbing pads. Lastly we apply an end grain sealant to all end grain that is showing.

    Painting

    Phase eleven

    4 coats are applied with a fine fill and de-nib between each coat.

    Glazing

    Phase twelve 

    Double glazed units are installed into the casement rebates and are beaded in place. At this point we apply any Georgian bar detail followed by a silicone seal all round the glass.

    Fitting up

    Phase thirteen 

    We re-fit all the hinges and locks and hang up the casements to check they are in good working order. After this we apply the rubber gaskets to ensure a good weather seal.

    Quality control

    Phase fourteen 

    After all the work is complete we have a team that inspects and checks the operation and finish of the window and only once they are satisfied is the window ok to leave the factory.
