  • YOU DON'T DEMAND A REPUTATION... YOU EARN IT.

    You don't demand a reputation... you earn it.

    With many homeowners looking at alternatives to plastic windows the opportunities for selling high quality timber box sash vertical sliding frames have never been better. But, says Mighton’s Mike Derham, the hardware choice is critical on such windows.

    According to the key 2017 Palmer Report* on the fortunes of the window, door and conservatory markets in the UK, in 2016 550,000 timber windows were installed in housing, out of a total market of 6.82 million. Of the total market, 7% were vertical sliders, of which an estimated 23% were manufactured in timber.

    A small, but Hanging Baskets In A Countryside Townactually very worthwhile market as prices and generally margins at the premium end are high with homeowners more intent than average homeowners to preserve the authenticity of their property.

    Of course many installers will be supplying this generally recession-proof sector and will understand the need for superb quality at every level: great customer care and installation service and of course, at the core of it all will be the products that they took a great deal of time selecting your company to supply and install. Your reputation rests heavily upon these being not just perfect when they are installed, but to remain so for many years to come.

    The customers of such products choose them because they believe that they are buying and paying for the very best, in the overall product of course but also very much in the visible fittings, but also in the way the window operates, when new and over time. Any diminishment of performance will be very noticeable by people that have paid for and expect the very best.

    But a surprising number of manufacturers undermine their products – and potentially their reputations - by shortening the viable service life of their products with the installation of cheap hardware. This goes against every instinct that I have and surely, makes no sense at all. And installers may also make the assumption that as they are selling such windows from an otherwise reputable manufacturer, then high quality hardware will, surely, be a given. Sadly that is not the case and the purpose of this editorial is to urge Tarnished Pulleyretailer installers to be clear on the quality of the hardware installed. For it is your reputation that is at stake here and you that will pay for the callbacks for failures.

    One may understand the use of cheap hardware when the window itself is unlikely to last more than a few years. But for high quality joinery I am surprised at how often I come across manufacturers who, despite the care and skill with which they produce what inevitably are expensive window frames, still insist upon fitting cheap hardware that will corrode within weeks of installation and fail within a few months.

    The irony of this is that timber window specialists inevitably (and usually appropriately) see themselves as craftsmen, as opposed to just ‘fabricators’, producing high quality, hand finished windows that are produced with skill, care and pride and sold – and purchased – as such.

    Why do quality conscious joinery companies do this?

    When inevitably I challenge those in charge of procurement for these producers about their decision to ‘go cheap’ their response remains consistently the same: ‘we need to cut costs’. But when one considers a frame that may sell for more than £1000, such financial savings amount to perhaps £10 for the whole window when buying cheap hardware, with limited guarantees and performance expectations. Is this worth staking a company’s reputation on, when a whole house installation might save a few hundred against an installation costing £20,000 or more? In the age of instant news the old adage of a bad reputation being gained overnight has never been truer.

    Cheap products should be avoided at every opportunity in order to maintain the quality of operation and aesthetics for the lifetime of the window. Poor quality products can lose their finish visibly in just a few weeks and can fail in is as little as a few months. Seldom do they come with safeguarding treatments such as PVD for example, or are they covered by worthwhile guarantees.

    Closer attention to these details will save you a great deal of money; and ensure your reputation remains intact.

  • LUXURY LODGES CREATE SEASIDE SHOWPIECE FOR MIGHTON ANKERSTUY

    Jurassic Retreat mighton ankerstuy lodges Jurassic Retreat - Larkfield DT6 4ND

    Owners of prestigious new holiday lodges on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast can expect them to keep their pristine looks in the face of the area’s legendary weather and salt spray, thanks to a factory coating of Woodstain TP from the Mighton Ankerstuy Specialist range.

    The lodges are the first in Siberian larch cladding to be installed at the park but, as Mighton Technical Coatings Director Graham Avery said, they now form a superb shop window for other prospective owners to see them at their best.

    Mighton provided an audit of the full factory finishing of the Siberian larch in association with Mike England Timber for Prestige Homeseeker Park & Leisure Homes, which manufactured the lodges for the Highland’s End Holiday Park, Bridport, owned by West Dorset Leisure Holidays.

    Mike England’s Colin Bennet explained the choice: “We wanted the natural look of larch but with a coating that would sit in the wood as well as on top, to provide maximum weather resistance. When the site is only 500 metres from the sea, it is prone to both rough weather and salt spray.”

    Graham Avery continued: “Ankerstuy coatings have been tried and tested all over the world, in every extreme of hot, cold, storm and drought. With such a prestigious location as this, the appearance of the timber is almost as crucial as its performance so the choice of coating is an important one.”

    He added that the purchasers of the properties are also offered a maintenance package, ensuring their pristine appearance is maintained with a consistency of colour and materials used.

    Mighton Chairman Mike Derham concluded: “These superb cabins are not just a showpiece to prospective buyers. Prestige Homeseeker makes units like these in a number of exterior finishes and, while this project involves only a few in the new Siberian larch, they will let everyone along the supply chain gauge what kind of demand there may be for them.”

  • MIGHTON LAUNCHES FULL COLOUR RANGE WITH DEDICATED PAINT AND STAIN CATALOGUE

    Mighton Products has boosted its link with paint specialist Anker Stuy with the launch of a new dedicated paint and stain catalogue and  range, showcasing the much-extended product and colour range that has resulted from their successful partnership.

    The range, now branded Mighton Ankerstuy, has more than trebled in size with not only an extended palette of its existing Exterior colours but also the new addition of Interior and Specialist coatings. All products in the range offer ease and consistency of application, fast drying, exceptional durability and sustainable performance. These characteristics allow the company to offer impressive guarantees of up to 25 years on their range of coatings for windows, doors, cladding and staircases.

    As well as details and colour charts of all the ranges and finish options, the 48-page catalogue now has much more technical and usage information, plus more details on the key products in the range.

    Also, along with the 2018 edition of Mighton’s main catalogue, it has been made easier to navigate, with the introduction of icons guiding readers to clear and simple colour-coded sections inside.

    Mighton Chairman Mike Derham said: “This is not just a new catalogue but a source of masses of useful information on choosing and using the Mighton Ankerstuy range.

    The extended Exterior range now includes 25 standard opaque and eight standard transparent colours, all tested and proven for use on Accoya® products. These are now joined by 20 standard Interior colours and a Specialist range of opaque and transparent stains.

    All Mighton Ankerstuy paint products, including primers, undercoats and top coat systems, are certified by KOMO - widely regarded as the leading accreditation body in Europe for testing and accreditation of products for the construction industry.

    Mike Derham concluded: “We have always offered a great colour-matching service, but now, with this much expanded choice of options, customers are able to choose from the full range of paints and stains, all from stock.”

  • OLD WOODEN WINDOWS MAKES IT BETTER WITH MIGHTON

    When Original Wooden Windows Ltd set out to make its frame production quicker and more efficient with new machinery, Director Gus Brazier said the name of Mighton Products needed no introduction. Even though the hardware specialist launched its machinery range less than a year ago, the Slough-based joinery firm knew Mighton from 12 years of using its sash weights and other ironmongery.

    Mighton did not expect OWW to make the choice on reputation alone, but was able to give Gus and the team hands-on experience of its Scribe-It™ end-scribing machine without leaving the factory, thanks to the Mighton Mobile Demonstration Vehicle.

    “The rep gave us a full demo of the end-scribing machine so we were able to see for ourselves exactly what it can do,” he said.

    “Installation was simple and didn’t cause any interruptions. Just from using the machine in the first couple of weeks the benefits have been clear to see. It has not only sped up production significantly but also gives exactly the same profile with every cut.”

    Scribe-It™ increases throughput by scribing the ends of timber profiles quickly, efficiently and consistently. It can complete a full cutting cycle in just 15 seconds and is compatible with any profile up to 45mm wide and 35mm deep. Using two cutters, Scribe-It™ allows for the shaping of the bead to be carried out in two halves, therefore safeguarding against issues such as the beads splitting or spelching at the ends.

    Chairman Mike Derham said OWW’s experience was the ideal example of the difference one machine could make:

    He explains: “The end scribing is only one small part of OWW‘s overall manufacturing process but when you have a bottleneck in a factory, it can have a knock-on effect on every other part.

    “Now, with the the right machinery in place, the whole factory can operate more smoothly and of course more efficiently and cost-effectively.”

    He adds: “We are always pleased to be able to support craftmen such as Original Wooden Windows, a family owned and run business which has been trading for over 40 years. All of their experienced staff specialise in the bespoke design and manufacture of timber windows and doors, with every item designed and produced to match exacting customer requirements. They also pride themselves on working sucessfully with heritage and conservation authorities.”
