The wood used in these windows is the Hardwood Sapele a member of the Mahogany family Sapele hails from tropical Africa in terms of Strength and durability Sapele is not dissimilar to English Oak.
The fact that we intended to paint the windows influenced our choice as Sapele reacts well to paint due to its fine grain.
Another aspect that guided our choice is the fact that Sapele is highly rot and weather resistant which in turn makes the wood an ideal choice for external joinery applications such as windows and doors.
Faithfully Reproduced Joinery Installations
The paint finish you see here is factory applied, Satin white on the inside and a Satin light green outside. The windows are all double glazed; even when working on period properties it is possible for us to help improve energy efficiency, most window types can be faithfully reproduced with the addition of double glazed units.
