When we create our custom built doors and windows, we use sustainable timber. Our timber doors and windows are made of solid timber to ensure that your doors and windows last as long as your home does while providing protection from the weather, hot or cold. But we have more reasons for using sustainable timber.
Local WA Economy
We use timber from the nearest sustainable sources we can find. This helps support the WA economy. We have also found that timber grown in WA seems to provide the best results for custom built doors and windows in WA. The trees grew in this climate and their timber thrives in it.
Shipping costs are figured into prices at a few points along the supply chain. We prefer to shorten the supply chain as much as possible and pass the savings onto you.
Helps Fight Climate Change
82% of the Australian population lives within 50 km of the coast. When global warming occurs, it is projected to raise ocean levels and eventually flood out many who live on the coast. This will affect many more people than those who are forced from their homes directly on the coast.
There are other effects of global warming, especially here in Australia, where our weather is already extremely hot during the summer.
Our Responsibility to You and the Environment
We feel that it is our responsibility to live our lives and do business in an environmentally responsible way. The best way we can do that is to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and help your home do the same.
When timber is grown on an environmentally responsible plantation, a tree is replanted for every tree that is harvested. Also, trees are only harvested after they have passed their peak of carbon storage and release of oxygen back into the environment.
It is our job and yours to leave as good a world to our children and grandchildren as we can.
