There’s no doubt that bespoke wooden window frames will accentuate the period charm of your home.  But, it’s your choice of glazed unit which will have the biggest impact in terms of the overall performance of your new double glazing.

That’s why, at Wood & Wisdom all double glazed windows come with a high performance glazing system optimised for thermal efficiency.

In addition, we also have a wide range of glazing options available including obscure patterns, acoustic reduction, solar reduction and enhanced thermal performance (a triple glazed system is available). There is also a wide range of lead and coloured glass options.

Thermal Gain (Solar Gain)

Solar gain happens when a window transmits the sun’s energy inside to heat your home.  This is a proven and beneficial investment in the UK, with high performance softcoat glass usually the best choice.

Acoustic Glass

Acoustic performance is affected by the thickness of the glass, the gas cavity width and the material used in the centre of laminated glass. Through comprehensive testing our experts can provide technical help and data to deal with individual requirements.

Safety Glass

The aesthetics of Toughening Coated Glass had been challenging in the past.  But thanks to improvements in pane coating technology it is now possible to cost effectively include safety glass within your home, without compromising the overall design.

Obscure Glass

Along side our extensive range of traditional clear glass double glazing, we also have a wide range of obscure patterned glass available. Choose from five levels of privacy, from 1 (least obstruction) to 5 (greatest obstruction).

Thermal Loss (U-Value)

We use Saint Gobain Total glass as standard in all double glazing designs.  We also have a wide range of options including self-cleaning glass and solar control glass to achieve the exact performance characteristics required.  And bespoke design features, including warm edge spacer bars (to increase energy efficiency),  a choice of cavity gasses (including Krypton, a sensible choice for triple glazed designs).

  • The original 1970’s windows in my property were in a terrible state. I wanted to maintain a contemporary, modern design, which was energy efficient. So, I commissioned Wood & Wisdom to design and manufacture hardwood, double glazed windows that replicated the feel of the original design. They’ve done an outstanding job. Service was excellent, with attention to detail throughout.

  • We decided to completely refurbish our traditional Sussex farmhouse and replace all the windows and doors with hard wood traditional style double-glazing.  We are extremely happy with the quality and design and would not hesitate to recommend Wood and Wisdom

  • I was very impressed with the Wood & Wisdom service. They handmade a set of bespoke oak gates for my property, finished with black wrought iron furniture crafted in their foundry.  The design is in keeping with the period, and the automated technology adds privacy and security for my home.

  • Our home dates back to 1900, and it’s important to us that the original Edwardian character of the property is maintained. We chose Wood & Wisdom to work with us on a recent refurbishment project; our home’s rear windows overlooking the South Downs, new windows for a garage complex and bespoke commission of a sunburst semi-circular window inspired by Edwardian design.  Throughout the project the team demonstrated expertise and craftsmanship that was second to none.  We could not be happier.

  • My 4-story modern seafront home has an entire façade made of glass and timber.  It’s incredibly exposed to the elements and sits within a conservation area.  Wood & Wisdom’s brief was to design and install bespoke windows that were not only in keeping, but also incredibly hard wearing. They recommended Accoya frames finished in a bespoke colour, with stainless steel fixtures and fittings suited to the exposed elevation. The team was amazing throughout the project, skillfully managing the challenges presented by 4 floors and large panes of glass without any problem at all.

  • The team at Wood & Wisdom designed and installed all the windows and doors for the rear of our detached Victorian property.  This included a bespoke 10x5ft roof lantern & custom built Victorian sash windows, which replicate exactly the existing original windows.  We also commissioned them to build and install a large set of bi folding doors which open into our garden and flood the new family room with light.   Excellent expert service, and I’d highly recommend.

  • We chose Wood & Wisdom to work with us on a recent refurbishment project and asked them to create two 2 separate sets of automated gates which are operated by sensor.

    Each gate is 16 x 8ft, which presented a challenge.  But the team expertly adjusted the brick piers to ensure brackets could be fitted, before custom making bespoke wrought iron hinges capable of withstanding the weight of the gates at the Wood & Wisdom foundry.  A smooth project, with excellent service from the team.
