Mumford & Wood make-toorder and will advise you on the correct style of fenestration that your home requires. Their award-winning Conservation™ range is a carefully coordinated collection of traditional timber sash and casement windows; beautiful French doorsets; increasingly popular balcony doors; dramatic bi-folding doors, and entrance doors with fanlights and fixed glazing so there’s plenty to choose from. Double glazing comes as standard in this collection with U-values that surpass the requirements of current Building Regulations which, if you are working on your project with the help of an architect, will be important to the specification. These products are Energy Saving Trust listed and carry the BSI Kitemark, the marque of excellence. Equally, if your property is listed, or in a conservation area where planning restrictions may overrule the use of double glazing, Conservation™ heritage single glazed sash windows with traditional true bar and putty glazing, or their new slim double glazed classic options, may be the perfect solution.

The company’s market leading warranties ensure they deliver to the highest standards. “Our customers are usually amazed that our products, which are fully factory finished, are delivered with three coats of high quality, micro-porous paint which is available in a wide choice of heritage colours, or stain, while a dual-colour option allows you to easily coordinate with the interior décor,” continues Frank. Inevitably timber windows will require maintenance during their lifetime and to ensure these products look better for longer you can purchase Mumford & Wood paint, colour matched to your original order, whenever you need it. Alternatively their Complete Care Service means that they will take responsibility for the care, maintenance and upkeep of your investment with an annual inspection and aftercare service. The Refer a Friend scheme means they say ‘Thank You’ to you, your friends and families when you recommend Mumford & Wood.
Homeowners can rest assured that Mumford & Wood’s Secured by Design accreditation will provide the highest levels of security Safe, Secure and Made to Last
Today security is of great importance and homeowners can rest assured that Mumford & Wood’s Secured by Design accreditation, this is the UK police initiative to design-out crime, to PAS:24 standards, will provide the highest levels of security. The timber the company uses is mainly Siberian Larch which is dense and slow growing. It is sustainably sourced and engineered to achieve the most stable, durable and robust timber making it perfect for fine joinery products. “Sourcing the correct timber is an art form in itself,” says Frank Buckley, managing director, “and we pride ourselves on making our timber selection the very essence of our success.” Recent research proves that timber windows made to the exacting standards of the British Woodworking Federation’s Wood Window Alliance scheme have an expected life cycle of 60 years and more so they will last longer, are greener and more sustainable than any other popular frame material.
