Everyone has seen the beautiful old Timber door canopies still to be found in villages and Towns throughout the country.
For hundreds of years, decorative woodwork has been used to enhance otherwise plain cottages and houses, but the practice came to an end in the thirties. Since then we have had decades of unattractive, plain housing design, unrelieved by any decorative features. This is a movement certain to continue as builders and home owners seek to improve the value and appearance of their homes.
Fitting an all-timber canopy gives immediate visual impact, and a cosy, homeley and welcoming atmosphere as you approach the front door. The Timber canopies you see replicate as closely as possible the patterns created in the last century, often by local carpenters - styles which seem well-proportioned,graceful yet functional.
Your Timber canopy would be delivered part-assembled for ease of fitting, except for the tiles. Full instructions are included fitting your Timber door canopy is well within the capacity of the average handyman.
All timber canopies are supplied unfinished, or can be primed for a small charge. Timber Canopies were traditionally painted white or stained a dark ouk shade, but any good quality paint or coloured preservative finish properly applied will ensure a long touble free life.
Ideally the Timber door canopy should be tiled to match the main roof tiles or slate. It can however be left felted, using mineral coated felt. A good seal must be made between the roof and the wall with either a mortar or flashing. Please choose whether or not you would like it primed. + £23.50
