Primed And Ready To Paint
Select our primed finish and rest assured that your window sills will be ready for a top coat of paint on delivery.

Our woodworkers also sand the boards prior to priming to make sure you have a clean and imperfection free surface to work with.
Bullnosed Front Edge
Our window sills are bullnosed on the front edge as standard. However, we can also leave them square if you wish.
The bullnose is a full round - starts on the top face and goes all the way round to the bottom face.
