Solid wood, hassle free doors that last a lifetime.

Handmade wooden doors

I will work with you to create a unique design to your exact specifications, whether it is a replica of an existing old door or something totally new. I will work personally with you so that you get the door that you will love.

All the surveys and measurements are taken by myself and every door is handmade, to order, by me, a skilled craftsman. I use high quality, durable, solid Accoya wood or European Oak so your new doors will open effortlessly all year round and last you an entire lifetime.

I pride myself on providing a professional, personal touch to every door, seeing all projects through from design to installation, so there are no middle men, sales tactics or outsourcing.

Great craftsmanship in the finished product, and really took the time to understand what we were after at the initial consultation. We relied a lot on the experience the company had to help us decide on what would work. A great end result.

I am not only impressed by the unique skills, craftsmanship and quality of the doors built by Gez at the ‘Handmade Door Company’, but also the extraordinary level personalised customer care I experienced. There was never any sense of ‘pushing for a sale’ which is really quite rare in the fast-paced selling world of today. I was especially struck by the time he made available to discuss the design in ways best matched to my period property as well as the additional time he gave to meet in person to review drawings and architectural details at different stages in the project. The doors Gez built are not only beautiful but genuinely exquisite in every detail. I am truly delighted to recommend ‘The Handmade Door Company’.

We had to replace 3 external doors on our Grade II listed house in Sussex. These needed to be bespoke, high quality doors – with the complication of two electronic locks for an intercom system. Gez at the Handmade Door Company guided us through the process from start to finish. From providing clear, helpful and genuine advice with regards to the design and construction process (as well as the time it would take), to the successful installation ahead of schedule, we could not be happier. He was a pleasure to work with. The quality of the doors is sublime – Gez clearly takes immense pride in his work. The installation by Fraser was also fantastic – solving a number of issues which had been caused by the previous door installers. All the electronics worked perfectly. Highly recommended!

Superbly made door, really pleased we chose Gez to make out bespoke front door. He has made a door exactly to our requirements and to such a high standard of workmanship. It looks really great, the joints are all perfect and it’s a perfect fit. Looks really great!

Gez’s craftsmanship is excellent and it’s a pleasure to have such a beautiful door, it has transformed the look and feel of our house inside as well as outside. The frame and door fit together perfectly, no mean feat in a Victorian house. When Gez came to survey the job, he took the time to go through every detail with me and gave lots of advice and ideas. He’s clearly very experienced and a perfectionist, which shows in his work. I can’t recommend Gez highly enough.

Gez (the maker) and Marcus (the fitter) have done a brilliant job, making and fitting a new front door ( based on the original door) for a house on a development designed by the architects Phippen, Randell and Parks who won an award for the project in 1968. Gez was brilliant throughout the whole process, keeping me informed as to what was going on throughout the whole process. It was a pleasure to have done business with this small company and I can’t recommend them enough. It is great to have a front door that is in keeping with the original design for the property
