Pitch Pine timber

Are your original period windows constructed from pitch pine? This particular customers windows, in the small village of Lunt, (near Crosby) Merseyside were. The owners of the house were certain that the windows were beyond repair and needed replacing. After explaining the pros of restoration and saving original features, they gave us the go ahead to do the worst window in the house to see for themselves what could be done. Under 150 years of paint we found the timber to be Pitch Pine, by far the best quality timber that would of been in use when the windows were first made, and that is now no longer available. After the window was completed they made the decision to renovate the rest of the windows in the house. Keep an eye out on our 'projects' page for more information in weeks to come. Don't make a hasty decision on taking out your old windows, speak to us first and see what we can do.
