  • New front door and room dividers

    10Verified Review

    Ian and his team designed our doors exactly to spec, and delivered on schedule. The finish is excellent, and we are delighted with them. They were also a very competitive quote compared to some others received. Having used Ian previously for our windows, we knew he would do a great job but these have gone far above our expectations. Thank you!

  • Replacement double glazed timber windows.

    10Verified Review

    Excellent and seamless service from Ian and the team who were very patient dealing with various planning requirements and issues. Paul did a great job on the fitting which was completed over two days and was a pleasure to have around. Delighted with the windows and we look forward to getting them to replace our front door as I'm sure it will be just as good. Competitively priced too.

    We wanted our original French doors replaced in original design but double glazed. Really happy with the finished product, the process and the people we dealt with. Highly professional service and would not hesitate to recommend them.

    This is the 4th time we have used Ian Foster on specialist joinery for our 1903 house and once again a superb, professional and excellent quality product has been supplied. We can’t recommend this company enough.

    9.75Verified Review

    Ian was prompt in responding to my initial enquiry and arranged a visit and gave us a quote within 10 days. He explained the requirements of each window fitting, really helpful. The fitter was diligent, got the job done very efficiently, he even sorted afew other related diy jobs which were needed.

    Ian is a charmer and very patient and meticulous. He accommodated the particular nuances of this job brilliantly and his installer Paul was excellent. Friendly, conscientious and flexible.
