26 Jul Choosing the Best Joinery Company for Your Doors and Windows
Joinery is a highly skilled profession that involves producing key wooden features, such as timber doors and windows, for residential and commercial properties, including listed buildings. ‘Joiners are trained craftspeople who create bespoke products […] and are experts in using both traditional tools and state-of-the-art technology,’ emphasises Go Construct, a careers resource for construction industry-related jobs.
However, not all joinery companies are created equal. When you’re looking for an entrance door or sash windows, for example, you’ll want to choose the best joinery company for your needs. After all, it’s important to find joiners whose timber products can be relied on to fulfil your requirements, enhance the building, work extremely well and stand the test of time.
With all that in mind, we’ve put together the following guide to what we firmly believe makes a joinery company stand out.
Timber Doors and Windows Specialists
Joinery encompasses a broad range of wooden products – doors, skirting boards, staircases, etc. So it makes sense to select a joinery company that focuses on the specific products you need, rather than one that may be spreading itself too thinly by attempting to do a bit of everything.
We specialise in making beautiful Devon doors and windows that meet our customers’ exacting specifications. Our knowledgeable, skilled craftspeople have many years’ experience of creating entrance doors, sash windows and related timber products in traditional and modern styles, as well as completing South West sash window restorations. We’re confident that our timber windows and doors expertise is second to none.
High-Quality Timber and Other Materials
You want to feel sure your new entrance door, say, will be produced using first-class timber. Accoya has many benefits, making it a high-quality, high-performance choice. The wood is specially treated to ensure that it’s impressively robust, stable and durable. That’s why Accoya is one of our favourite timbers for doors and windows. Moreover, our timber products benefit from microporous paint, which lets the wood breathe rather than stifling it, while still providing a long-lasting protective coating.
Good joiners know that fantastic finishing touches are crucial too. Attention to detail is incredibly important in joinery. You wouldn’t want to spoil a stunning sash window with substandard sash lifts, for instance. So we’re also extremely selective when sourcing glass and ironmongery for our timber doors and windows. Innovative designs and fine craftsmanship are essential.
Bespoke, Comprehensive Service
When replacing doors and windows, the last thing many homeowners want is to deal with multiple companies. For a streamlined, hassle-free approach, it’s worth choosing a joinery company that offers a comprehensive service.
That’s exactly what JTP Joinery provides: we design, manufacture and install timber entrance doors, sash windows and more. Every product will be custom-made for your Devon property, plus we’ll support you every step of the way, from initial ideas to completion.
If you live in a listed building or conservation area, we’ll also help you to navigate the legal landscape with regards to replacing or repairing period sash windows, etc. Furthermore, our listed range of timber doors and windows is designed to fulfil stringent planning requirements without compromising on security or function.
FENSA Approved Installer
For peace of mind, it’s advisable to have doors and windows installed by a joinery company backed by FENSA, the government-authorised scheme that monitors building regulations compliance in relation to these products.
JTP Joinery is a FENSA Approved Installer, which means our timber door and window installations comply with the relevant regulations, meet energy efficiency requirements, and are registered with the appropriate local council.
FENSA-approved installations are supported by FENSA certificates – documents that prove each installation fulfils the criteria mentioned above.
Case Studies and Five-Star Customer Reviews
One of the best ways to decide if a particular joinery company is right for you is to look at examples of its previous work. That’s why you’ll find a series of case studies on the JTP Joinery website. The stunning Accoya doors and windows we produced for a family home in Torquay are superb examples of our team’s achievements.
Reading what existing customers think about joinery companies can also be extremely helpful. We believe excellent customer service is paramount and are proud to earn plenty of five-star feedback for our joinery work. See the customer reviews on our homepage or Yell.com profile – they highlight our outstanding track record.
