Welcome to G S Haydon & Son
G S Haydon & Son Ltd are a North Devon based carpentry and joinery company supplying high quality bespoke joinery items; including doors, windows, stairs, interiors to name but a few. Our emphasis is always on quality and what the customer needs, from complicated bi fold doors to a flush casement window. We have excellent relations with private customers, trades people and architects to undertake projects from a complete kitchen remodel, conservatory or just a replacement casement.
G S Haydon and Son has over 90 years experience in the carpentry and joinery trade as it was established since 1926. This has seen us encounter nearly every type of joinery and gain a great breadth and width of knowledge.
If there is any project that involves wood and it has not been listed or you would like more information please contact us by phone or email.
Working on old houses with heritage and historical significance is a common thread in our workshop.
For some time I've wanted to read this book.
Our business survives on making unique items that can't be found in depots, merchants or retailers.
Sharpening and setting up tools is not all that difficult but it is an essential step to get good results.
I wish I had taken some "work in progress" photos, but at times this project was a head scratcher for me and I was to focused on getting the job done. The Lean Too style is normally a pretty easy style to undertake. However, one of the issues on this project can be seen above below. I had a lead flashing transitioning into a lead gutter due to the meeting of the roofs. I'm not a lead worker but thankfully we work with a specialist subcontractor who is excellent. This is where extra days get added to a project as they can only be completed on site.
