RDF’s Joinery Division has developed an enviable reputation for its portfolio of bespoke staircases, windows and doors that are hand-made by their own, time served craftsmen.
This has recently been further enhanced by the introduction of the accoya product which RDF are actively offering clients as an environmentally friendly, sustainable option to standard softwood materials.
The introduction of accoya wood, which goes through a process of acetylation, changing the properties of the wood at a molecular level, results in the wood becoming impervious to moisture ingress and the associated mould and rot.
This Environmentally friendly process has many other associated benefits including improved thermal properties and maintenance of only the painted surface which is determined by the quality of the paint.
RDF now offer the “accoya option” on all our bespoke creations which means we can bring sustainability and enhanced Environmental performance features to all our products.
RDF Building is pleased to announce the completion of the new build dwelling that was created within the grounds of an existing listed building.
The stone fronted single storey gatehouse was hailed by local planners as the “most sympathetic and perfect design” for the development.
The unit was erected as a timber frame structure with a stone front elevation and brick to the three other elevations. A timber and aluminium roof lantern was installed to pay homage to the design of the main building as were the stone columns and portico which frame the front entrance beautifully.
The dwelling was constructed with high efficiency heating and lighting as well as a media hub system which distributes AV around the various rooms within the dwelling from a single main point. Bespoke sliding sash windows were manufactured in the RDF joinery workshop which were expertly installed into the building allowing it to surpass the requirements of the air test that all new builds must undertake.
The property, not surprisingly, has already been sold with the buyer being delighted with the final product.
