    10Verified Review

    We are thrilled with our beautiful new oak front door from the Handmade Door Company, Gez and Fraser are both perfectionists which is very much been reflected in the wonderful finish and quality of the door. I never thought looking at a new front door would give me so much pleasure.We have also noticed reduced noise pollution since the door was fitted and our hall is so much warmer. Would highly recommend Gez and his team.

    Gez has produced and extremely high quality front door, which is even beyond our expectation. We were recommended using accoya which we are so pleased with, other than that, essentially Gez created a beautiful door using our specific requirements. The process with Gez was very relaxed and no pressure applied at any point. It was fitted and finished,/painted expertly too. If you are looking for HIGH quality then look no further.

    Gez made a beautiful, high quality, secure door for us. His attention to detail was excellent and he went to a lot of trouble to get the design exactly as we wanted it. The installation and painting was completely hassle free. We would highly recommend Gez and his team.

I have been using Accoya wood since 2011 and have not experienced any of the problems that are associated with timber doors or windows. So its the perfect choice for your new Door.

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 am so committed to customer service and satisfaction that I will personally guarantee all my Accoya fitted doors with a product, and customer service/ satisfaction guarantee.

Every project is measured by me personally and constructed and Installed between myself and Fraser.

Fraser offers the installation service so you can have the complete package from the point of enquiry to your finished door constructed and installed by us.

I also use a professional painter and decorator to come and hand paint your door after installation as well.

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.
