How do I know my timber windows will not rot?
The materials Dorset Heritage use are dependent on specification, but as standard we use top quality materials. The timber we use as standard for exterior work, such as making windows, is Accoya, which is gauranteed against rot for 50 years, and is more dimensionally stable even than teak. We source glazing products usually from Pilkington Glass, who offer warranties on their products. We are happy to discuss details of all materials with our clients on individual projects to ensure the specification is agreed and understood.
Do you have a Health & Safety Policy?
Yes, Dorset Heritage Ltd has a Health and Safety Policy which is reviewed regularly. All members of our team are regularly updated with our policy to ensure understanding. Risk Asseessments are carried out prior to the commencement of work to minimise the risk to our customers, their families or employees, the public. and our employees.
Do I need Planning Consent?

It is important to know that any alterations to listed buildings require consent from the Lacal Authority, even changing the colour of your paint!! But the application is free.
Here are some advantages of using DokToYou:
· NO GUESSWORK NEEDED
Instead of having to guess what ails you and self-medicate afterward with medicine that may or may not be effective, DokToYou allows you to talk to specific specialists that will diagnose you via video consultation and explain the symptoms you are experiencing.
· CONVENIENCE FOR CHILDREN, ELDERLY AND PATIENTS WITH DISABILITY
According to research, children do not have fully developed immune systems until they are 7-8 years of age. The elderly’s immune system is not as strong as they were when they were young and patients with disabilities may or may not have underlying medical conditions that compromise their immune systems. Using DokToYou eliminates the risk of exposure of children, the elderly, and patients with disabilities with other sick patients. DokToYou is highly useful in situations where the patient must practice social distancing or is unable to attend a healthcare facility in person.
· LOWER COSTS
The cost of quality health care is steadily increasing for the public which pushes them to make unusual care choices. Some don’t go to follow-ups, some self-medicate and some skip going to the doctor altogether to avoid having to pay the high cost of health care. Because DokToYou enables you to stay at home while interacting with the specialists you need to talk to, you spend less money as fees are competitive and you save on time (no need to take time off work)
