Why Choose Wood?

Wood has been the natural choice for windows and doors for centuries. As an important long term investment timber windows add value to your home, save on fuel bills, reduce condensation, improve peace and quiet, and reduce the time you have to spend on maintenance.

The natural beauty of timber windows and doors provides warmth, charm and timeless appeal. Whilst wood has been the preferred material for restoring or renovating period properties, its versatility suits even the most contemporary projects. We use the following types of wood for our wooden windows and doors: Sapele, Redwood, Accoya and Oak or any other specified types. Visit our guide to wood types page to find out more

Here at AJ&D Chapelhow we are proud to only purchase our timber from sources that hold either the  FSC® or PEFC™ chain of custody certification schemes.


Choosing the right window for your project is key to the efficiency and overall appearance of the property. We create window designs to suit listed, traditional and modern homes and commercial buildings.

Our skilled team of craftsmen will work with you to ensure that our windows are perfect for your project needs, we also offer a specialist shape service for arch, bay, bow, circular, raked and peaked configurations.
