Welcome to The Hand Made Door Company Limited.

If you are looking for a new bespoke front door to compliment your home, then I would love to make it for you.

After owning Brighton Bespoke Joinery for ten years making all types of windows doors and staircases, I decided I wanted to specialize in what I enjoy making the most. Bespoke made front and french doors, for homeowners who want something a little bit special, and far higher quality from some of the pre-manufactured doors on the market.

I have made lots of  bespoke front doors, french doors and Bi-folding doors for homeowners throughout Sussex and I am proud of every door I have ever made.

So, I have decided to have a fresh start, a new company name, and to specialise in bespoke made doors. Love and care go into all my handmade doors, and I am confident that my doors are of far superior quality than any pre-manufactured timber door money can buy.

Using Accoya wood and Teknos coating systems, your new front door will last you a lifetime guaranteed.

When I first heard of Accoya wood I was a bit sceptical, but after a visit from Mike Lewis (Accoya representative) I decided to give it a try, and I have not looked back.

I have not had any of the problems that are associated with timber doors or windows since using Accoya.  I personally recommend Accoya for all types of exterior doors and windows.

In brief, the Accoya wood process takes sustainability sourced fast growing softwood and in a non-toxic process that enables nature, creates a new durable, stable and beautiful product, a treated timber that has the very best environmental credentials.

I have been using Accoya Wood since 2011 and it is (in my opinion) the perfect timber for your new door, here is why:

  • Your new door will open effortlessly all year round
  • Swelling and shrinkage reduced by 75% or more
  • Paints and varnishes last 3-4 times longer
  • The most durable wood possible
  • Accoya is virtually rot-proof
  • Lasting 50 years above the ground and 25 years in the ground
  • Naturally beautiful wood

I now specialise purely in handmade bespoke, Accoya wood doors, but I still manufacture and install bespoke windows too. I can supply and install your new door/s primed for your decorator to paint, or fully finished (factory sprayed) to any RAL colour. I am also happy to offer a supply only for you or your preferred Installer to fit, please ask for details. Please see below for services I can provide for you.

  • Bespoke Front Doors with new fully draft proofed frame and multipoint locking systems
  • Bespoke made French Doors with new fully draft proofed frame and french door multipoint locks
  • Bespoke made Front or french doors to fit into your existing frame (subject to current frame condition) with draft proofing and lock options
  • Bespoke made bi-folding door sets (Accoya Only)
  • Specialist made to measure Interior doors or to match existing profiles
  • Sliding sash windows
  • High performace Casement Windows

I have over 20 years’ experience in Joinery and have a very high standard of craft and quality. I formed the company in 2008 and dedicated my life to it. I am so committed to customer service and satisfaction that I will personally guarantee all our Accoya factory fitted products with a product, and customer service/ satisfaction guarantee.

Every project is measured by me and constructed and Installed between myself, Fraser and Sean, who both have years of experience.

We offer a fitting service so you can have the complete package from the point of enquiry to your finished door or windows constructed and installed.

Please feel free to read my reviews and browse my gallery so you can be sure that the handmade door company is the right choice for your new project.

For a free Estimate, please email me a picture of your existing door/s with as much detail as you can as to how you want your new door to look including colour (if spray finish is required)

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
