I’m currently getting in designs and quotations for windows and external door for my project. I have conditional planning and Listed building consent.
One condition, on my listed property, is that the windows and doors have to be of wood and painted. Seeing quotes come back, I’m starting to learn what is available but would appreciate some advice on hardwoods, softwoods and semi-hardwoods.
The timbers that I have had in quotations include oak, Sapele, Idigbo, Douglas Fir and Accoya.
The windows and door will be NW facing and we are about a mile from the coast so still get some salt in the wind and rain on the property.
Any thoughts, suggestions or experience would be very helpful.
