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.

“Your bespoke joinery came highly recommended by a renowned Wood Scientist and technical building consultant”
Following a successful tender submission, incorporating our detailed drawings and interpretations of how we would counteract the dramatic weather dynamics, a meeting was arranged at our Leeds Head Office with other specialists from around the UK, to discuss possibilities. We manufactured an operational prototype to show the client, not only the products but the finishes that would be applied.
After a series of further consultations, and ensuring the client’s satisfaction. We were appointed to manufacture, finish, deliver and install the bespoke Idigbo windows, doors and louvered venting systems.
The windows have an innovative 2 sensor, louvered venting system incorporated. There is an internal sensor to control internal humidity, external moisture sensor detects rain in the air, and this allows the vents to open or close depending on the Caribbean climate.
Once all items have been carefully loaded into a container and shipped, to their new home. Our skilled craftsman will then fly out to install them into the new built location.
