We have nearly 100 years experience in the Joinery trade after being established 1926. We began as a Wheelwrights business and developed the joinery side of the business through the years. This has seen us encounter nearly every type of joinery and gain a great deal of knowledge. It can be reassuring to know that you are dealing with a business that has been making solid wood joinery longer than most people have been alive!
We provide our joinery service mainly in the North Devon, Exmoor and West Somerset area although we do also work in Devon, Somerset and Cornwall as required. We have supplied our Joinery to other locations too and we are open to discussing work with clients outside of the South West area. We are able to supply and fit our joinery along with applying any finishes and making good. This makes things more straightforward for our clients, saving the hassle of liaising with separate fitters, painters etc. We are also happy to provide our joinery on a supply only basis too.
We work from a modern and well equipped workshop on the Pathfields Business Park in South Molton in North Devon. Our experienced team of craftsmen work hard to deliver quality joinery products, combining our modern equipment with traditional hand skills to ensure a quality outcome. The core of our team have been with us for well over a decade making quality joinery and we actively train apprentices to ensure skills are passed on. For our repeat customers this creates a close family feel where employees are often on first name terms with our clients.
To get a true impression of us and what we offer, we welcome any clients to come and visit us (please call to arrange) and see for yourself what we do. This gives you the chance to see work in progress in our workshop, giving you a realistic view of what to expect. A great deal of clients are repeat business and referral. New clients are always welcome and can call us on 01769 572 134 or email us on our contacts form. We look forward to hearing from you!
This question is often posed and I think was well overdue a blog article.
These doors are on their way out tomorrow for installing, but before they do they are having a final inspection and clean.
It was very pleasing to go and look at a project we completed for a client during late 2018.
Working on old houses with heritage and historical significance is a common thread in our workshop.
Why are we using Red Grandis?
Wood has proven to be an excellent material for making windows and doors both in the past and the present day. In the past, the overwhelming amount of windows were made from softwood originating from Scandinavian countries. Sadly, after World War 2 the quality of softwood began a steep decline. From a window and door perspective, the big problem is with a high amount of sapwood being included within the softwood being sold.
