We’ve supplied bespoke joinery products of all shapes, sizes and quantities to a variety of refurbishments, some listed/heritage buildings and all other developments. On the occasions our work has been recommended for the traditional joinery involved with restoration projects, the quality, skill and precision of our joiners comes into its own.
The intricacy and complexity in the joinery work on some period properties is not for the appointment of any joiner. Our experienced time served joiners have the essential knowledge and traditional skills that are essential to take on the technical and detailed joinery.

Convive restaurant a new build Mediterranean constructed at Grade II Listed Weetwood Hall is due to open March 2017.
All at RDF Building are extremely proud to have been involved with the creation of this ‘Top 10 Leeds List’ restaurant and wish it every success.
RDF’s craftsmen were on hand at the Listed Building Show in Harrogate to provide expert advice, display our bespoke products and complete a demonstration on how to complete resin repairs to damaged timberwork.
The resin repair display was received with great success with many people commenting that they didn’t realise that it could be used as extensively as we demonstrated.
Many timber items that were previously thought to be beyond repair can now be saved through using this technique which is preferred by Conservation Officers.
The display included information on previously completed Conservation and Restoration projects as well as our in house project management service that we provide.
RDF’s Joinery Division has developed an enviable reputation for its portfolio of bespoke staircases, windows and doors that are hand-made by their own, time served craftsmen.
This has recently been further enhanced by the introduction of the accoya product which RDF are actively offering clients as an environmentally friendly, sustainable option to standard softwood materials.
The introduction of accoya wood, which goes through a process of acetylation, changing the properties of the wood at a molecular level, results in the wood becoming impervious to moisture ingress and the associated mould and rot.
This Environmentally friendly process has many other associated benefits including improved thermal properties and maintenance of only the painted surface which is determined by the quality of the paint.
RDF now offer the “accoya option” on all our bespoke creations which means we can bring sustainability and enhanced Environmental performance features to all our products.
