Do the Maths! – Accoya® is amazing value, but firstly what is it?

Thetford Barnham in Pigeon Grey*

Woodrite’s Thetford range of garage doors is made from Accoya®.  Accoya® wood uses an extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation - that creates a high-performance wood, ideal for outdoor use.

It is the go-to material for the building industry – the manufacturers state:

 “Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater” – impressive!

Woodrite and their stain partner Teknos are consequently very confident in their 10-year warranty on the door’s finish!

It’s expensive though, right?

Here’s where things could take a turn for the worse, but it’s good news! “At our last price increase, we actually dropped the price of Accoya® Doors as a result of our better volume buying power. It now sits at a similar level to our Warwick range of Idigbo timber doors” Said Sharon Cleaver, Woodrite’s Sales Director.

Sharon continued, “It’s still a premium product, but when you do the maths and factor in that the price includes fully finishing, covered by a 10-year warranty, it represents amazing value”.

Styles, colours and perfect for paint finishing

Woodrite’s Thetford range is available in eight popular styles in up and over, side hinged and personnel operation, all with matching frames if required. There are five standard colours, although, in typical Woodrite fashion, any shade can be matched with architectural details or other timber.

Accoya® is perfect for coating, its inherent stability means coatings last up to two times longer and paint finishes don’t suffer from tannin leaching through and discolouring the paint finish. Accoya® is also easier to coat and requires less preparation and sanding.

“We always recommend Accoya® for doors that are to be paint finished. The current trend for Farrow & Ball heritage colours is something we are doing a lot of and Accoya® is the perfect base” added Sharon.

“It’s a truly remarkable product that only Woodrite offers and, once the wider market catches on to the new low pricing, an already strong seller is really going to take off! concluded Sharon.
