At Cotswood, we specialise in making and fitting bespoke doors. We are really proud of our design specification and of our attention to fine detail in the handcrafted joinery we deliver.
Some of our customers ask us to make windows too – which we are delighted to do. We put the same effort and skill into making wooden windows as we do into making a bespoke door. Every window is handcrafted from the best timber with a superb design, excelling in draught-proofing, security and warmth. While there are lots of people making mass-produced redwood (softwood) windows, Cotswood windows are truly bespoke and are typically made from top performance timber – Accoya.
At the design and survey stage, we normally look at windows separately to doors. We have found that our customers are sometimes keen to invest more budget and time looking at a new door than they are a window.
Wooden windows fall into two categories: casement windows, where the sashes are hung like a door on hinges, and box or sliding sash windows, which slide vertically in the frame when opening.
With any new window, we really do prefer to make the window with a new window frame. This means that the design can have draught-proofing, locks and double-glazing incorporated within it.
