Lomax + Wood Limited provide premium quality timber windows and doors, all of which are made-to-order to suit the style and period of property they are for. Based in Essex the company supplies and fits for private homeowners, developers and contractors across London and the home counties.
It’s wonderful to see our timber window and doors bring a building back to life, “ says Chris Wood, managing director, Lomax + Wood. “Combining period sight lines with thermal, acoustic and security performance they allow the homeowner to enjoy their property in comfort.” Lomax + Wood provide a complete service, as opposed to many timber joinery companies who will only supply their windows and doors. “This provides our customers with peace of mind knowing there is only one point of contact, who will measure, design and fit the windows and doors.” Timber windows sales have increased over recent years as their quality has improved and homeowners have realised that pvc is not always the appropriate choice for certain houses. Their share of the market has grown, this is a combination of the development of high performance timber windows and the purchaser realising that the property value is increased through the inclusion of the appropriate product and devalued when it is incorrect By this it is meant that there is a place for pvc products in the market but a typical period property, for example, be it a renovation or new build, is enhanced by correctly designed timber windows and doors and devalued by those which are not.
There’s often a lot of talk that wooden windows and doors being high maintenance. No product or material in maintenance free and all will degrade overtime without the correct maintenance. The beauty of timber is that it canlast for hundreds of years if correctly maintained and parts easily replaced or repaired. The difference these days is that the paint systems are micro-porous and water-based which wears down overtime and is then re-applied. Rather than old paint systems which need to be rubbed down and applied with a number of additional coats. Perhaps even more importantly is the material used, Lomax + Wood use engineered timber which is knot free and provides strength and stability, essential for most products but particularly large timber French doors and bi-folding doors
The overall design of timber windows has improved to incorporate features that improve their overall performance. Lomax + Wood windows are independently tested under laborartory conditions to ensure they surpass the regulatory standards set by the government Building Regulations. Double glazing, fully weather-stripped and with the latest espagnolette security features are standard and to be expected in today’s market place. The difference Lomax + Wood are able to provide is that their products incorporate these modern features while maintaining period sightlines where required. Victorian or Georgian box sash windows replacements, from the companies Kensington and Chelsea range, recreate the appearance and beauty of the originals but offer so much more.
The Lomax + Wood range of premium quality products are provided by an experienced team who are familiar with dealing with projects within conservation areas that need a particular set of skills. In addition to a survey the company provides CAD drawings which precisely detail the window and door sections which is often required to ensure a project goes ahead.
