Finishes

We have considerable experience of timber and use our knowledge to recommend finishes for our joinery. From the very first consultation, we discuss your project in detail, making sure we can recommend an appropriate finish.

We’ll consider a number of factors, including:

  • Existing joinery.
    It you’re replicating existing joinery and need your new doors and windows to blend in, we’ll take this into consideration.
  • Glazing.
    We make sure we consider the frames and the glazing, especially if you’re switching from single glazing to double glazing.
  • The look you want to achieve.
    If you prefer natural timber, oak might be the perfect choice. If you’d like a stained or painted finish, we can recommend options and show you samples.

We can offer both traditional brush finishes and smooth, modern spray finishes. This will depend on the aesthetic you prefer, and also the type of property you have – a brush coated finish will generally appear more authentic and work well for a period property.
