Case Studies


The owner of a cottage in Fishbourne, West Sussex needed to have their windows and doors replaced as they had become old and worn, with the wood already becoming rotten in some places. The cottage was a listed building so the owner needed to find a company who could make exact replacements for the existing windows and doors. The owner approached us as he had heard about the quality of our bespoke joinery and carpentry work from a friend who we had recently undertaken some carpentry work for.

Our surveyor met with the owner to get a detailed understanding of the requirements and take accurate measurements of the doors, windows and frames. He discussed the options available to the owner for choice of materials and finishes, making recommendations based on the listed building requirements and the likely life span of the different woods available.

Our surveyor then produced detailed drawings of the job and provided an accurate breakdown of the costs involved and timescales for completing the work, which we went through in detail with the owner. Once we were asked to proceed, we agreed a date and time to undertake the works.

We made the windows, doors and frames at our workshop at Woodmancote near Emsworth, to minimise the level of disruption for the cottage owner, which allowed us to come on site, remove the old windows, doors and frames and install the new ones very quickly.

Once finishing touches had been applied, we were able to leave the job knowing we had done a good job. The owner was very pleased with our work and has asked us to do further work for him in the near future.
