Introducing "Accoya" Modified Timber

Updated: Apr 5, 2022

We have begun to offer our windows and doors in this high-end modified timber.

Accoya is a modified timber which has undergone a process known as "acetylation" which, to you and I, can be thought of as a pickling process.

Contrary to the slightly intimidating science jargon above, this process is not at all harmful to the environment, and Accoya fully complies with all of the sustainability requirements laid out by the FSC.

Now, let me explain the benefit of this timber; that it is practically impervious to rot, so much so that Accoya is warrantied to withstand up to 25 YEARS submerged in fresh water or buried in the ground, and an astonishing 50 years above-ground!

Accoya is also highly stable and resistant to swelling, contracting and twisting when in service, this means that, as the years go by, your windows and doors will continue to open and shut without catching or binding, no matter how damp the weather is.

Don't take my word for it, follow the links below and see it for yourself.

Is it time to upgrade your windows or doors? Get in touch with me at or give me a call on 07596469203.
