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.

To see if I am the right choice for you please view a range of doors I have made and read our Checkatrade reviews to see what previous clients have to say about me.

Why I choose Accoya wood

A new world of sustainable and low maintenance products is available using Accoya wood.

The result: a durable, dimensionally stable, reliable and beautiful solid wood with the performance characteristics of the most durable tropical hardwoods, but offering industry-leading environmental credentials.

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!

Right from the start Gez showed his expertise and unlimited advice regarding the creation of our lovely oak front door with frame. He continually provided feedback while making the door. Once the oak door\frame were ready for installation, he quickly organised Fraser to complete the installation which was also a very professional job. The door\frame look great and are really in keeping with rest of the old cottage. Would definitely use Gez again, many thanks.

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

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.

As a one man operation workshop I am still in production of doors with minimal or no risk to anyone.

Please let’s fight this off together by respecting our personal spaces.

Upon door survey and door installation I and my installer will always maintain 2 meters from you. We will not really need  to come into your home other than around the doorway upon installation. If myself or my installer show any symptoms between survey and installation I will contact you to arrange alternative dates. Likewise if you or a family member develop symptoms, please do warn me  before survey or installation.

Please do not worry your door can be stored here in my spacious workshop for as long as need be until we are all ready.

Let’s all work together to see this off.

Thank you for reading
