Our Joinery Workshop
BESPOKE QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP
WHERE 21st CENTURY MACHINING MEETS TRADITIONAL handcrafted SKILLS
Our joinery shop has seen heavy investment over the past few years in both machinery and skilled bench joiners. We manufacture all of our own windows using the finest hardwood timber and traditional carpentry methods, including ‘through' or 'solid’ glazing bars, which help to retain the window's authentic look and set them apart from imitators.
MADE TO LAST designed TO WOW
Each sash window that leaves the joinery shop includes our draught-proofing system which seals the entire perimeter of the window and has been independently tested to withstand winds up 71mph. The windows are then sprayed with a high build base coat and an anti-stain primer before being cured and sent downstairs to our glazier.
READ IN DEPTH ABOUT WHAT GOES INTO A
Once the sash windows have been glazed and a final inspection completed, they are carefully racked in the back of a Ventrolla van and delivered ready for installation by our expert fitters.
