What is a window board?

A window board is the internal shelf or sill, flat piece of wood that sits in front of the window and usually fits over the bricks below the window. Wide oak boards are difficult to find and can curl a bit when they are thin so for stability these can be made from a few pieces joined together.

What is a roundover?

A roundover is the term used to describe a machined curve to the top and bottom edges along one side of a board which give it a rounded finish. This takes off the sharpe edge and makes a neat soft edge to where your feet may come in to contact.

Why is European Oak good for windows?

European Oak is very durable and tough because it grows slowly in a cold and wet climate making it very resiliant in damp conditions. With oak being durable in moisture it makes it perfect for windows and doors. Oak has been used for centuries as window boards and many of the oak window boards used on listed buildings have not needed to be renewed.
