There are more and more options available for windows and doors at differing qualities and price-points. At Timbertherm, we believe the best option is to always use solid timber windows and doors. Besides their beautiful aesthetic and warmth, timber windows and doors provide the perfect balance of durability and elegance, with modern techniques making them very energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
Working in Colchester and the surrounding area, we design and construct timber windows and doors, catering to bespoke requests and providing restorations to period houses.
Our designs feature a complete process, not moving on to the next step until you’re fully satisfied. All of our windows and doors use solid engineered timber, the best form of solid wood, we think, due to how it’s manufactured. With engineered timber, any natural defects, such as knots or sap, are removed with the timber being laminated with the opposing grain, creating a durable, practical wood that doesn’t twist or warp over time.
With our windows, you can initially choose which basic template you’d like, whether it’s a casement or sash window or maybe you’re looking for an orangery. After that, there’s a wealth of options for you to choose from including different architectural styles, finishes, additional security features and much more.
Each of our windows come with concealed standard security features, unique profiles to ensure weather-sealing and are fitted with high performing, Argon gas-filled, double glazed sealed units, ensuring that any window you choose will have minimal heat loss.
If you’re looking for restoration on your period home, we’d love to help. Many period homes have district styles (e.g. Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian) and decades or even centuries of use mean that each period home has its own distinct character.
We aim to create exact replicas of your period home, working with your original design to ensure a sympathetic replacement. We understand the importance of using the correct materials – all of our timber is conservation-approved and won’t damage your property value. We also provide enhancements using modern techniques to make your period windows more thermal-efficient.
