Decorative Finishes

We are able to offer a range of spray applied finishes from primers, stains and paint finishes using modern high performance water based microporous paints and stains, designed for exterior joinery.

These coatings use resin systems which when dry are both flexible and breathable, allowing timber to move naturally through the seasons whilst minimising the cracking & peeling associated with traditional solvent based coatings.

There are a large range of colours and stains available and colours can be matched to meet your individual preference.

Benefits of Wood

  • No other material has the character, warmth and individuality of wood. It has timeless good looks and provides a sense of well-being
  • No other material grows naturally and helps make your home a healthier place
  • Good quality wood windows are an investment as well as being aesthetically pleasing
  • Wood has huge environmental benefits over other building materials. Wood product manufacturing produces far fewer greenhouse gases and uses less energy to process than steel, concrete, aluminium or plastic.
  • Wood is the ‘green’ choice. It is completely biodegradable and as the world’s only renewable building material, wood can not only be recycled, but regenerated as well.
  • Wood is a natural insulator and enhances the thermal performance of a window.
  • 90% of the wood that we use in the UK comes from European forests. The owners of these forests are regulated by strict laws which require replacement of harvested trees. Because of the carbon sink effect of the forests (trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow), wood from these sustainably managed forests can actually be better than carbon neutral.
  • Wood is a high performance material, low in weight, yet high in density, with excellent load bearing and thermal properties, and the availability of a wide range of timbers, each with its own characteristics, means wood can be suitable for most special requirements.
  • Wood is resistant to heat, frost, corrosion and pollution; the only factor that needs to be controlled is moisture.
  • Wooden furniture combines timeless beauty with robust practicality and can be made to suit a contemporary or traditional style.
  • Wood’s strength, light weight and stability mean wooden furniture is exceptionally durable, ageing gracefully over the years.
  • Wood creates naturally healthy living conditions. It is easy to keep clean, helps maintain an optimum humidity balance, helps a room warm up more quickly and keeps condensation to a minimum.
