Energy Efficiency

High performance timber front doors

Timber is a naturally insulating construction material, offering superior thermal insulation where it’s needed most. Adept at keeping buildings warm and cosy whilst eliminating draughts and rattles for good, combined with efficient double glazing, secondary glazing, or single glazing, you can combat rising fuel bills and improve energy efficiency across the board with a high-performance Ventrolla installation.

Once we receive your final payment, our handy ‘Care Pack’ will be sent to you or your client which includes energy improvement certificates for absolute peace of mind.

Maintenance

How do you clean timber doors?

Low levels of basic maintenance and cleaning are essential to prolonging the life of new timber entrance doors. Requiring a fresh coat of paint every 6-8 years and a quick clean every 6 months, periodic timber door maintenance doesn’t need to be time-consuming.

Once we receive your final payment, our ‘Care Pack’ will be sent to you or your client which includes handy Maintenance Instructions to keep new timber doors looking their best for longer.

Thank you very much for an excellent job, by some of the nicest, most professional builders I have had working here for three decades.

Excellent service from the fitters. Extremely impressed with their tools and equipment to carry out the works. Certainly knew what they were doing. A welcome change

We were most impressed with the speed of your reply, the sympathy you had with the building’s integrity, the quality of your demo kit and the attention to detail in your quote. You are an excellent advocate for your company.

Frequently Asked Questions

I live in a listed building / conservation area / AONB - can you work on my property?

Quite simply, yes, we can! We have completed lots of work over the years on listed properties and those within conservation areas and Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Working closely with local conservation and planning officers, English Heritage, Historic England, Historic Scotland, and Cadw, you can trust in Ventrolla to reinstate and sustain unique architectural features whilst simultaneously heightening historical value too.

What kind of wood do you use?

We use a range of timbers – hardwoods like sapele, softwoods like redwood, and a fast-growing, sustainably sourced ‘super wood’ called Accoya®, which comes with a 50-year guarantee and has been specifically designed to withstand the worst of the British weather.

Do you offer an installation guarantee?

Yes, our work is guaranteed for 5 years.

Is there a minimum order value?

Yes, there is. Offering a full renovation, draught-proofing, or bespoke new joinery service, our minimum order value is £1,500 inclusive of VAT. So, we can’t usually help with smaller works than this (e.g., broken sash cords, cracked glazing, etc.) unless they form part of a larger renovation project.

How long will the work take to complete?

Varying from area to area, Ventrolla lead times depend on how busy we are, and the specific renovation work required. On average, our lead times range from 6-14 weeks from the date the order is placed. Your Surveyor will be able to advise you further on current lead times, and our operations team will be able to confirm exact timescales once you place your order.

PLEASE NOTE: In these unprecedented times, coupled with the latest COVID measures, please be aware that our lead times could be longer than originally specified. Should there be any impact on your installation date, please rest assured we will keep you updated throughout the process.
