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.
The Myrtle Tavern in Meanwood has been transformed during a blisteringly fast refurbishment – 21 days from design briefing to serving drinks!
The site has been rejuvenated with a traditional ‘cosy’ vibe that has, due to the locality of the cricket pitch, a minor sport theme infused within the design.
The bespoke corky ball and wicket screens are complemented by the cricket bat balustrade as well as the signed memorabilia that is positioned within the main bar. The clean stonework and oak flooring lead you to the new, ‘old’ back bar with its many tantalising spirits tastefully displayed under the new copper lighting.
New cosy pockets and corners have been created to allow customers to enjoy the space in a way that they could not before.
After an introduction and a successful tender submission. We have been awarded a contract to manufacture, deliver and install replacement timber windows & doors to various properties in York.
The project is within a conservation area and will see the delicate removal of existing timber windows, replacing them with new bespoke energy efficient A* rated alternatives.
Careful planning and a high level of customer care will be implemented, providing a constant source of communication with the residents, adding to another successful social housing scheme.
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.
