About wood


We work with a number of different wood species to ensure that we can always produce the best possible products for our customers’ requirements and preferences. We will work closely with you to select a variety with the right natural characteristics for your desired result, whether this is its durability, the ease with which it can be machined, or its decorative appearance.

We’re always happy to discuss the different wood species that we use so that you can determine the best choice for your windows, doors, or joinery. As a natural product, we just ask our customers to remember that there will always be some variation within the appearance of the wood we use.
