Many of the windows and doors were rotting and ill-fitting, causing a lot of draft within the house and making it colder. The windows also came in unique sizes and shapes and the doors were not of a standard size – but that was no problem to us!
On visiting the show area, the Minton-Taylor’s fell in love with timber. They learned the type of timber we use – Accoya – is a type of treated wood which has been thoroughly tested for dimensional stability, durability, paint retention and in-ground conditions to ensure optimal performance. This type of timber means that swelling or shrinkage is reduced by 75% or more compared to untreated timber and it’s virtually rot proof. So while older wooden doors and windows often put people off replacing with wood – modern techniques mean our replacement windows and doors are very hard-wearing and more in keeping with traditional buildings.
So, they decided to invest in timber rather than uPVC, which we have made right here in Skipton.
As you can see, the whole house looks fresher and more inviting.
And what do the Minton-Taylors think of our service? See for yourself:
“A highly professional family-owned double glazing business. The original mock sash windows and doors were either rotting or ill-fitting. So we decided to replace them.
Carrs is a small family owned company with a strong focus on personal service and quality of work.
The most impressive aspects of their business is their attention to detail. Kim, Leigh and Marc of the firm were incredibly responsive to our needs.
Their expert team of joiners carefully crafted the replacement doors and windows to fit our original non-standard size window and door openings.
Fitters Danny and Ben were incredibly neat and tidy and a joy to work with. The resulting look is fabulous. We cannot recommend Carrs too highly.”
