Our business is the installation and supply of windows and doors for construction.

Arcura is a long established family business with a strong reputation amongst developers and contractors for quality workmanship, unparalleled industry knowledge and high levels of service. We started life back in 1986, and until August 2015 we were known as Woodpecker Windows. So, why the change?


We design, supply and install any fenestration product you need, including windows, doors, folding doors, sliders, roof lanterns, acoustic, integeral blinds and solar glazing.

We also do a great line in advice – it’s what we’re here for.


We specialise in aluminium and PVC-u, but we offer a lot more besides. If you can’t find what you are looking for – just ask and we’ll source it for you.

We specialise in sourcing materials to the strict specifications and tight timelines that new-build projects demand.


We partner with new-build developers and contractors – on new-build residential projects we simply don’t do one-off domestic replacement projects.

Key Staff:
Always on hand to help and advise.

Managing Partner

The Godfather of the company who makes offers you can't refuse because his knowledge and experience have been honed through industry understanding and fenestration is a work of art.

Gavin Ridewood
Finance manager

Through the difficult years he has found the quill and velum difficult to meet modern day standards. It was decided that replacing Gavin's abacus moved him into more financial parlance using an Apple system, where the lowest price is not necessarily the right choice. Understanding the clients requirements and offering the best service is pre-eminent.

Craig Ridewood
Sales Manager

The Tom Cruise of Arcura where no Mission is impossible. Gave up his male modelling job of socks for a more challenging career at Arcura. His attention to detail is second to none, providing clients with detailed proposals, answering all the questions and leaving no stone unturned.

Shaun Ridewood
Operations and Aftersales Manager

The Fixer-This gentleman makes it all happen. Fully recovered from the early years; trying to flush out the double glazing salesman from the Wendy House on his first job. Projects are completed on time and within budget. No nasty paper cuts where you feel the pain of extras a few minutes later.

Martin Ellis
Project Manager

Our man in the ops room who passed muster in the interview, although "Morris Dancing" on his CV didn't help, as he kept falling off the bonnet. Projects is his middle name, throw whatever queries you have and Martin will respond like a rocketing pheasant in a very professional manner.

Rob Lawrence
Business Development Manager

Has recently joined Arcura, having escaped from his previous incarceration. He has the "Tender Touch" meaning if there is a tender to be quoted on he will find it-now without his sniffer dog Bernard, despite his famous ability of ‘mislaying’ mobile numbers!

Whatever the project or sector, we have the experience and knowhow to get the job done.
