We provide a wealth of information on our website about timber windows, but we'd be happy to visit your home or arrange a call-back.

We have a no pressure approach to meeting our customers and we always send written quotations following a visit. We understand that these projects sometimes take a while to get off the ground and we know that our customers don't want to be hassled so we simply send the quotation and wait. Some customers come back within a week, others take a month or even a year and that's fine.

Below you'll find a selection of work we have undertaken in the Scottish Borders area, supplying and fitting timber windows.





Sliding Sash Windows in Midlothian, Scottish Borders

The key to this installation was to replace 100-year-old windows with new double-glazed timber sash windows which looked just like the originals. Careful surveying and window design enabled us to tuck much of the sash window framing behind the stone reveals so that we replicated the glass area of the old windows. The other dimensions of the windows - meeting rail width, bottom rail height and so-on are just the same as on the old windows.




Stormproof Casement Windows east of Edinburgh

A WET day in Haddington under leaden skies as we completed this installation of top-hung casement windows with fixed sashes (also known as dummy-sashes) to the lower section. The external shot shows the window just before finishing with a sand & cement ribbon around the joint between window and stone reveal.

The internal shot shows one of the ways we can finish off the installation, with a colour-matched profiled timber trim. We agree the finishing detail with the customer and in the vast majority of installations there is no need for any decorating to be done after the windows have been installed.




A Lovely Window Installation In The Beautiful Scottish Borders

This was a lovely installation in the beautiful Scottish Borders near Coldstream and only 15 minutes from Berwick-upon-Tweed on the English side of the border.

Traditional Sash Windows in Scotland

Mainly sliding sash windows, there were also two unusual side-hung casement windows with narrow timber glazing bars arranged to give double crosses. The windows were fitted from inside which gives the opportunity to really slim down the amount of timber frame showing around the window. The red sandstone mullions and surrounds were shown off to their best by the white timber windows, supplied fully finished and with a coating that will not need maintaining for up-to 10-years.

Sliding Sash Windows in house in Scottish Borders

The glazing bar design on the timber sash windows is typical of a late 19th/early 20th century property - sometimes seen with no bars at all on the lower sash. The ground floor windows are divided unequally to take the meeting rail away from the line of vision inside.




What A View

What a view! We were delighted to win the job of replacing the old windows of this large farmhouse nestling on the border between Northumberland and Scotland and so were our joiners. We installed double glazed timber sash windows over a 2-week period in May and the weather was excellent (most of the time).

High ceilings and large rooms with single-glazed, draughty sash windows made this home a little less cosy than it might have been. Our sash windows carry a double weather-seal all round to prevent draughts and the double-glazing reduces the loss of heat by over 70%. Meanwhile the traditional design and method of construction maintains the aesthetic appeal of these very British windows.
