All of our hardwood windows are made to measure, using Sapele. Sapele is a stunningAfrican hardwood that is a reddish-brown wood and is very similar to Mahogany originating from Central & West Africa. It is one of the finest grades of Hardwood available and is the most popular of African hardwood species. Offering great strength, colour and durability, this beautiful hardwood lends perfectly to any window thanks to its natural resistance to the elements. So it will look just as beautiful years from now as it does the day we install it!
Your front door is the first thing people see when they visit your home, so it's important that it makes a good impression.

Some people argue that no material is more stylish than genuine hardwood, such as oak and timber, which is why it's a popular choice for new door installations. However, hardwood doors are usually rather costly and difficult to maintain, and because they can warp and discolour easily, they often don't last very long. Fortunately, composite doors from Edinburgh appear almost indistinguishable from the real thing, and the benefits of such doors extend far beyond that. At JBC, we're one of Edinburgh's leading home improvement companies thanks to the experience and skills of our team as well as our commitment to exceeding customer expectations.
