A NORTHUMBRIAN joiner is creating something of a revolution in the North of England and Scotland with his bespoke wooden doors and windows.

Neil Blakeburn and his team at Ochiltree Bespoke Joinery, have more than 30 years’ experience in the industry between them, and guarantee their windows and doors for 50 years.

Using a revolutionary wood product called Accoya®, they are confident that your windows and doors won’t swell, twist or rot for half a century.

Unlike conventional frames, often made with soft wood that needs replacing after five to ten years, Accoya wood is the combination of decades of research and development. The result is a high-performance wood, ideal for outdoor use.

Accoya is made from soft wood that is grown sustainably in New Zealand, and shipped to Holland where the hardening process takes place.

In addition, Ochiltree uses the very best paints and stains which are guaranteed for up to ten years. Industry leading Teknos exterior paint is breathable and has an exceptional reputation for quality and durability.

And because the timber doesn’t move, and the paint provides a better seal, it doesn’t allow water to seep in – one of the main problems with conventional wood windows and doors.

Neil says: “I am confident that this is a superior product to traditional wooden doors and windows, and can fully endorse the 50-year guarantee. The quality of Accoya is consistant throughout; virtually rot-proof and naturally insulating, while maintaining the beauty of natural wood.”

While the cost of using Accoya for your windows and doors will be higher than traditional wood, the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial outlay.

Ochiltree Bespoke Joinery will take care of all your requirements for replacing, or installing new windows and doors.

From the initial site visit, measuring and no-obligation quote, right through to installation and aftercare, the highly-skilled team will oversee every step of the process to improve the look and longevity of your home. 

Every bespoke window and door is hand-made at their workshop, with the spraying taking place at their separate premises.

Neil has always been a joiner and set up the company, in Hexham, six years ago to serve Newcastle, Carlisle, Durham and the Scottish borders.

Over the years, the business has grown to include a second workshop in West Lothian, encompassing Glasgow and Edinburgh, and he now employs eight staff, including an apprentice.
