The beauty of wood

The main reason many homeowners and builders still choose timber doors and windows is for aesthetic reasons. Timber components can look better than the alternatives, whilt being sturdy, traditional and beautiful too.

The timber tells its own story, and traditional door and windows styles made from wood work brilliantly both in period houses and modern homes that want to exude style.

Timeless timber

A timber door or window is only as good as the manufacturer, however. Custom Timber Doors specialise in making bespoke, hand finished doors for the UK market, using modern technology to deliver a result that is fit for all kinds of houses.

Their range covers styles ranging from Georgian to Edwardian, contemporary to art deco influences. But they don’t sit in a warehouse gathering dust – these are all made to order, to your unique specifications, ensuring you get a product that works perfectly with your home design.

The benefits of wood extend to more than just looks. Most modern timber doors and windows are made from sustainable sources, in many cases leading to a negative carbon footprint as new trees are planted to replace the old. Timber is easy to fix and repair too, while plastic and metal doors often have to be completely replaced if damaged.

Wood is also a great heat regulator, which is why sash and casement windows remain popular. While some window materials can stifle, these help keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Custom Timber Doors have a sister company – Custom Timber Windows – who provide the same bespoke, personal and high quality service for windows as they do for doors.

Browse their wide ranges of both doors and windows online and get in touch to find out more about how they combine cutting-edge technology with handcrafted finishing to deliver products that weave together beauty and performance.
