Just a quick note to say thank you for the door, it looks fantastic, and
the fitters were very professional and helpful.
Will recommend you guys to friends
and family for sure.
All the best
Hi, Jonathan and Mandy
Sorry it's taken so long but we've
been waiting for our step to be fitted. Thank you once again for our beautiful
front door, it looks absolutely gorgeous! And thank you for your professional
service, we will definitely be recommending you to our friends.
Jo and Mike Platt
You recently supplied our new front doors and garage doors via Steve Bosley
at SRB and we are extremely pleased with them - they are a credit to your
craftsmanship. Hopefully Steve sent you photos of the doors once they
were installed - if not I will be happy to do so, you may like to add
them to your gallery.
Thank you once again for a superb product.
Kind regards - C. Edwards.
I just wanted to let you know how utterly delighted we are with the new
The installation is perfect, and the quality of the workmanship is fantastic.
I cannot thank you enough for service you provide.
My only problem now is paying for the new garage door Katie wants you
I will be in touch about that.
Please send our thanks to all involved.
Just a note to say
"thank you" for such a wonderful door. All we could say when
it was fitted was "Wow!!!" The craftsmanship in construction
and the skill in fitting is mind blowing. I cannot praise nor recommend
your company too highly. We just can't stop looking at it!
Tom M, Haslemere,
Just a quick note to say the chaps turned up Friday as planned to fit
the new door.
They were excellent, turned up, got on with the job, finished quickly,
and basically left no mess.
I wish all our jobs went as smoothly.
Hi Mandy and Jonathan,
Sorry its taken
a while, but I just wanted to say a very big thank you for our beautiful
new door. We love everything about it, it is both beautifully made and
expertly fitted. The fitters were so friendly, helpful and painstaking
about the finished product. It is always such a privilege to work with
people like that. So thanks again for all your patience, hard work and
craftsmanship. It is certainly a job well done and we would be very happy
to recommend you to anyone.
All the best
Elli J and George B
Just a quick note to say thanks a
million for the door and the prompt delivery (despite the horrendous weather).
We absolutely love the door and have
nothing but good things to say about dealing with your company. We will
recommend you to anyone who will listen.
Thanks again to all of you.
Your fitters installed the door yesterday and I just wanted to let you
know it looks fantastic. The quality of your craftsmanship is excellent
and the fitters made a first class job installing it. I need to save up
now to get the window done.
Thank you all very much, it was such a pleasure dealing with everyone
on your team. Your business is a credit to the industry.
Mandy & Jonathan,
is just a short, belated e-mail to say how pleased we have been with the
Oak stable door, frame and 3 windows that you supplied us last Winter.
It was the worst month to fit an untreated Oak door but we overcame that
and once installed and treated it has turned out to have been a perfect
replacement for the shabby old door that we had before. It has received
many positive comments and the room behind it is a lot more appealing,
warmer and no longer damp. The windows went it smoothly and once painted
they are just the style we were looking for.
also found you to be responsive and professional in the order and delivery
again and we now have the restoration of the rest of the house to think
of now. You may well hear from us again.
The door is lovely and the fitters did a really
good job of fitting it for us.
It really stands out as a quality door and I am
very pleased all round.
I just wanted to let
you know how delighted I am with the door which was fitted today! It is
so beautifully made, such a quality product, the perfect colour and absolutely
right for my house.
So full marks for
everything. I will recommend you to anyone who asks where we got our door.
I can't recommend Jonathan and his company highly enough. They work with
care and extremely sympathetically to the build. We first used them (having
found them on the internet) to make 3 sets of garage doors, one of which
is 'fake' and has a small personal door. The joiners we were using on
our build were so impressed with the quality that they recommended that
we continue with Jonathan for the doors and windows of the library I was
building in a converted barn. There were three standout aspects of the
product from Jonathan on this build - the three-pane fold-back doors with
pellini blinds inset are strong and beautiful; Jonathan made a door with
triangular-shaped window above from measurements supplied over the phone
by our joiner; Jonathan also made a new oak door to match one we had bought
in reclamation, matching to a bad photo from my iPhone. Needless to say,
being a barn conversion, we have no straight walls, so the fit could have
been problematic, but Jonathan worked directly with our joiners and between
them they managed to get everything millimetre-perfect. Our builders took
a stack of Jonathan's cards to hand out to other customers - very unusual
for them, as they are very picky!
I will email some photographs separately.
I hope all is going well,
I took these quickly on my phone. If they are what you want but need better
quality let me know and I'll get the camera out.
Please tell Jonathan that I LOVE my door!
Jackie Orr - Bucks.
Have just unwrapped our door, which probably took us longer than it took
you to make it. There was no way it could be damaged in transit. We are
delighted with it. It's standing in situ, just waiting hopefully for someone
to come and fit it. It has been a pleasure dealing with you - we are so
glad we chose you from the Internet.
Margaret - Isle of Arran
So sorry for the delay in sending these through, but it's taken till now
to finally finish the front of my home and then get a dry/bright day to
photograph the door. Needless to say, I have received lovely compliments
about it and one of my neighbours came across to ask me where I got it,
as he said it's exactly the kind of door he wants on his house. I gave
him your card and don't know when he will be doing his, but I'm sure he'll
be in touch as and when he's ready to go ahead. Others have commented
that my house is the best looking on the street, now my gorgeous new door
has completed the facelift!
Thank you again...your door has made me and my house very happy! Hope
you like the pictures..
It is Carolanne and Pete from Haslemere, I was really surprised and pleased
to see the picture of our kitchen window on your website!
It is great to see that your business is doing so well, and in fact we
were wondering if you could give us a quote for another oak window in
the same design.
Our Bed and Breakfast is doing really well and we are building another
bathroom so as to have 3 rooms - do take a look - if you ever have the
time and would like a complimentary night away you are both very welcome.
Many thanks for now and we look forward to hearing from you.
Carolanne and Pete Webster - Peartree House
The trifold set looks abosolutely superb - everyone is drooling at the
quality you guys have built, as well as the design itself. Take a bow,
The front door
is absolutely fantastic thanks. We are very pleased and continue to have
some extremely complementary remarks from visitors. We even had a knock
on the door asking where we got it from the other night and Lisa has passed
on your details.
Mike - Colwyn Bay
All doors and windows and frames are looking great. Yes, will be emailing
you some photos. Want everything finished off before I do (eg windowsills
and painting) so you get a better picture.
Many thanks for such beautiful crafted pieces of art!
Hi Mandy & Jonathan,
I was waiting
until the driveway was completed, but have managed to take a couple of
pictures without any of the building rubble showing.
I have had lots of compliments about the door and we are so pleased with
Thank you very much
I hope these photos are useable for your website and have inlcuded a 'before'
photo, the door has made a huge difference. Everyone who has come to visit
Thank you so much for the fantastic windows and doors and especially the
amazing triangular pane which miraculously fitted perfectly! Our joiners
are so impressed by the quality of your work that they took your cards
from the packing and are recommending you to other customers.
We have a couple more extra pieces of oak that we need to request from
you if possible.
I hope business is continuing to go well for you and that you will get
a holiday this summer, but not till my barn is finished!
Photo attach . very happy with your service door fitted easily very pleased.
We are delighted with the door. I have attached a picture from the inside
and out. Unfortunately we are having other work done so the area immediately
around the door does not look as nice as the door itself.
If you don't mind a bit of unpainted woodwork I can send you some better
photos when the sun comes out.
We are hoping to redo our garage over the winter and will order a matching
garage door from Jonathan.
Have just sent you some pics of our gorgeous front door. Let me know if
you'd like information on what local west London mags to advertise in
as I do believe you'd make a killing... you are significantly less expensive
than your London competitors.
Hi Jonathon &
Well we have lived with our (your) stable front door for 3 years now and
it still looks absolutely fantastic and entirely practical. It's a great
combo of style and engineering. It's ever pleasing to the eye.
I am starting to turn my attention to our internal 'lovely' '70's veneer
cardboard doors! Can you quote me a price for two internal 760 x 1974
x 35mm doors in the style of your 'Oak Door Fully Glazed'? Cost is important,
wood isn't so much, although I'd like to keep it hardwood if only to keep
the glazing secure. Can you also quote me for three matching non-glazed
Hi Jonathan and Mandy,
I rang your office the other day to confirm the safe arrival of the doors
and to express our extreme pleasure with them. Your products deserve to
grace the finest houses and I cannot say often enough how absolutely delighted
we are with them. We will get pleasure out of them always. My builder
has said he thinks your joinery is the finest he has seen in
thirty years and he has won regional builder of the year three times in
the last ten years so he might know what he is talking about. He will
certainly be recommending you to any of his clients that require oak joinery.
I don't think you have seen the last of us either!!.
Have a very
happy Christmas and we will see you in the New Year as soon
as the rooms are finished together with the photographs,
John and Maggie.
Just a thank
you for the door - it was superb! Workmanship excellent - look forward
to future orders.

Hope you had a good holiday.
Our door has now been fitted and we are delighted with it. It fits perfectly
and lines up exactly with the existing side lights. Our door fitter is
an experienced craftsman in his sixties who builds very impressive oak
staircases himself and he descibed it as a " beautiful door"..........high
You offered a great service from beginning to end and we would like to
wish you continued success in these difficult times. When we get a minute
we will send you a photo.
Many thanks again
Dear Jonathan and
This is just a quick email to say how pleased we are with the doors......they
look great!! Also the workmanship and attention to detail is fantastic.
Many, many thanks for the great service and delivery and will send you
a photo soon.
Martin & Nicola Nayler
To let you know
the door is absolutely fantastic and the walnut finish onto
the Sapele wood blends in very well with my period house.
Thanks again for your workmanship, quality, prompt delivery and guidance
you have given me to ensure you had a satisfied customer.
Just a short note to say that the builders have fitted the doors and they
look absolutely fantastic and thoroughly in keeping with the character
of the manor.
I dont mind saying that both Debbie and I were a bit apprehensive about
ordering on line due to the obvious reason of not knowing who you are
dealing with etc but in this instance all of our doubts were completely
Thank you so much for providing a first class door at a very reasonable
Both Debbie and myself wish you all the best for the future.
It is extremely
rare that items are damaged in transit due to the way we pack but when
or if it does happen we do everything we can, if a repair can be done
that's great if not
we will replace the item. Please read Mr Bloomfields comments below.
Sorry not to have been in touch since you sent me the Idigbo filler.
The repair went very well indeed. First attempt showed the colour was
a bit light so I darkened it with some wood dye and refilled the holes.
I also added some graining with a fine brown felt pen and after varnishing
with a medium oak colour it is impossible to see from any normal angle.
I am delighted with the way it has turned out and with the overall result
of both doors in their frames, the skirtings and the window sill, they
look fantastic and give a real quality finish to the two rooms. My wife
is very pleased as well and says they are the best features of the new
Now that we have finished successfully I wouldn't dream of taking any
refund - it was very good of you to offer it or replacement and it was
reassuring to have in the background in case the repair didn't go well
but the end result is so good I think we should just leave things as they
are. I certainly know where to come if we need any other doors as we work
our way round the house, it's been a pleasure dealing with you and Mandy.
Many thanks for your help.
Just to say thank you. I have just fitted Ally Goodings door, and both
my clients and myself were very impressed with the quality of your work.
The door fitted the frame perfectly, and meant that the whole fitting
process was really painless. Its very rare for me to receive a door that
doesn't need lots of additional fine sanding and is so well protected
for transport. I shall always recommend you should any further projects
of this kind arise.
I am just writing
to let you know how pleased we are with the new front door you made for
us. It has now been fitted and looks marvellous.
Jonathan, hi. Both
doors are now up and are really superb. The carpenter who hung them said
it was a pleasure to work with doors of this quality. They are everything
and more than we wanted, so thanks very much to you and your team. Best,
Mike & Jennifer Walker
Doors arrived safely
they are magnificent.
Door and frame received this afternoon. Many thanks for organising the
quick delivery. I am very pleased with the finished product.
Pity I have to come to Wales to get craftsmanship...... I've tried locally
to get some good old fashioned quality doors/windows on several occasions
in the recent past with very average results, and it was with some trepidation
that I ordered from you guys. I need not have worried. The quality and
finish are exceptional, and the whole process has been totally painless.
Splendid job! Well done!!
Best wishes to you and Jonathon.
Garage doors look great I will take a couple of photos for you, thanks
again for getting them to me in time and i hope to offer you some more
work in the near future.
Just a quick email
to say that the door arrived as planned, and in perfect condition. You
certainly weren't kidding when you said they were well packaged ! The
poor delivery chap was struggling with it somewhat apparently.
The door is gorgeous
! It really is the "icing on the cake" for the kitchen. It has
also shown that the cabinets and doors really do look like pippy oak (they're
vinyl wrapped doors) as they're a perfect match with the real oak door.
Our joiner is going to hang it tomorrow. He's too rushed today with other
commitments and wants to spend time getting it right. I get the impression
you may be contacted by him too as he's taken down your details :-)
We were already
considering replacing our front door when the time comes to do the hall/stairs/landing
so I suspect we'll be approaching you for that one.
Jonathan, just to let you know, we are getting lots of good comments from
people in our village about our door! I attach the photo but will send
some better ones when the flowers are out in a few months time.
I am of course very pleased with it - a beautiful piece of work!
Door is fitted and looks great. Many, many admirers. Thanks again. - Paul.
Many thanks for the new stable door. It was packaged beautifully and arrived
in excellent condition. It fitted like a glove and is truly a precision
piece of work.
Hoping I have another opportunity to order from you again.
With grateful thanks.
Dr Wildy, Jersey
Our thanks to you and Jonathan for all your help and guidance.
You haven't got rid of us yet....the doors upstairs (which we thought
were okay until we put your doors up) will need to be done!
Kind regards as always,
Gill G & H Soft Furnishings
Thank you for your letter following up the treatment for the door. I have
coated the door twice with sikkens top coat and the glazing has been siliconed
in by the joiner. The door has been installed now for about three weeks
and it looks beautiful, I was very impressed by the standard of workmanship
and finish, it is like a piece of well made furniture and it has exceeded
We would certainly be happy to use your services again in the future.

Thank you the door etc arrived safely & looks fantastic. Thank you
for all of your help.
We are looking forward to it being fitted & if you manufacture spindles
etc to convert old 1970's plank ranch style banisters we will be in contact
in the new year. My wife is more than pleased with the door and after
several months of searching for the 'right door' its great that she has
what she wanted. Please pass on our thanks to everyone at the factory.
Its good that today craftsmanship is still alive! Have a good christmas
& a prosperous New Year. Andrew
Dear Mandy and Jonathan
Thanks very much for the doors - they've arrived safely and they're wonderful!!
Thanks very much for doing them in such a short time - we shall be recommending
you. I've already shown your web site to my builder - as I was impressed
with the pictures and the product has lived up to the web site..
Many thanks indeed.
Door is fitted - fantastic quality. So nice to have a real oak door -
we have a Victorian 1850's house and it really looks superb. Thank you
VERY much. If you have any customer's who want a recomendation, I will
be happy to do so.
Best regards, Harry Mendelssohn
Everyone who visits us now the house is finished without fail always mention
the doors. You will not be surprised to hear we always recommend you to
everyone who asks!
Best regards, Paul T
Apologies for the delay in getting the pictures of your fabulous door
back to you. We're very happy with it and it has been much admired.
Received our new back door today as promised - and it is absolutely beautiful,
far exceeds our expectations and is exactly what we wanted. The attention
to detail is fantastic & we'll certainly be recommending you to friends.
Thankyou very very much!
Our carpenter is currently hanging the door with as much care as you clearly
take in making the doors. Certainly we are absolutely delighted with ours;
the idea of painting it has been put to one side as it seems such a pity
to cover up the beauty of the wood. We will be using Cetol Filter 7 in
stead based on the recommendation on your website.
Many thanks indeed - Martin.
Absolutely delighted with the door and window. Suberb quality and service.
Well worth the wait. Very pleased with the fitting too. Now saving up
for more! Terry is a wonderful advertisement for your company as regards
the products but he also said what a wonderful boss Jonathan is and how
it's the best place he's ever worked. I think you can have no higher accolade
and that you must both be very proud of the business. Thanks Mandy - Susan.
Hello Mandy & Jonathan
Just to let you know the doors arrived safely on Saturday morning. They're
a work of art, thanks very much. I spent the weekend getting one hung
(a bit slow I know) and its looking very good, will hopefully get the
other two done this week.
I'll drop you an email when we're ready to do the french doors - which
probably be sometime in the new year. Gary K
Mandy and Jonathan,
The door is beautiful just what we wanted thank you
However just one complaint were already a bit disappointed with the rest
of our external doors - yours now just makes them look naff by comparison.
Having received our door on Saturday morning, may I take the opportunity
to thank you for the high level of service we have received. The door
arrived promptly on Saturday morning, packaging was outstanding, no damage
or issues. The door was fitted on Sunday and looks fantastic. We are extremely
pleased with the quality of the door and frame.
Once again, thank you, and I will have no hesitation recommending your
services to friends.
