Windows and Doors
At George Barnsdale we’ve been crafting the highest-quality timber windows and doors for the UK’s most prestigious homes and buildings at our Lincolnshire-based factory since 1884.

Whether you are looking for wooden windows, wooden doors or wooden patio doors, with three core product ranges to choose from, we can provide the perfect solution for your historic, traditional or contemporary home.

Within each range a number of design, profile and finishes are offered to allow our timber windows and timber doors to be customised to meet the precise requirements of your project.

Timber Windows
  • Casement
    To suit window replacements, renovations and new build projects we offer two casement windows design options – flush and stormproof.

  • Sliding Sash
    Our unique collection of sliding sash windows will complement the most specialised restoration projects and grace the grandest homes going.

  • Pivot
    We can manufacture to bespoke project requirements, as our innovative pivot system will accommodate opening windows of irregular shapes.

  • Tilt & Turn
    Originating from continental Europe, timber tilt & turn windows provide exceptional versatility and performance.

  • Yorkshire Sash
    Often referred to as horizontal sash windows, our timber Yorkshire sash window design couples a traditional sliding mechanism with advanced draught proofing.
Timber Doors
  • Entrance
    In the design of our timber entrance doors, we achieve beauty and exceptional levels of security and comfort.

  • Contemporary
    Timber contemporary doors are perfect for new builds and modernised properties, or for those looking to make a statement in their home.

  • Single
    A perfect addition to the side and rear of any property, our single timber backdoors designs are simpler and feature more glass than entrance doors.

  • Stable
    Stable doors are gaining in popularity, and our timber stable-door designs replicate the traditional barn-style entrance that is especially suited to cottages and farmhouses.
Timber Patio Doors
  • French
    French doors provide a timeless and traditional feature to effortlessly tie a property and garden together.

  • Bifold
    All of our timber bifold-door designs are provided with high levels of customisation with a choice of glazing, paints and stains and the option of dual colour.

  • Sliding
    The great advantage of timber sliding doors over other patio-door designs is the extent of uninterrupted glass they allow when closed.

  • Tilt & Sliding
    With the ability to provide ventilation without having to slide the entire door, our timber tilt and sliding door designs offer outstanding functionality and flexibility.
We have decades of experience working with some of the UK’s leading architects, construction companies, developers, restorers and other professionals to deliver superior bespoke timber windows and doors for projects of all sizes. Whether you are looking for solutions for a new build or a refurbishment, our timber windows and doors are expertly designed to meet the most demanding design and performance specifications, whilst remaining sympathetic to the building’s architecture and surroundings.
