If you’re the proud owner of a period property, you know how it feels to have your very own piece of history. Period properties have been enjoyed by many generations before you, all of whom will have made their mark and adapted the property to their needs. This makes period homes all the more interesting; they’re living history, reflecting different tastes, lifestyles and designs through their heritage.
You have the opportunity to put your own stamp on your property, tailoring it to your needs and enhancing its aesthetic while retaining character features.

Adding value to your period home
We understand it’s difficult to know what will work in a period home, and we meet many homeowners who aren’t sure where to start. We can help with the whole design and installation process, offering as much (or as little) input as you need. Our team help you transform the appearance, security and comfort of your period home.
- Arrange an appointment with a member of our team.
- Listen to your requirements and offer our expert opinion.
- Follow up with a written quotation, and information about the insurance backed guarantee that we offer through our membership of QANW.
We’re happy to answer any queries that you might have at any stage of the process. When you have confirmed your order, we’ll undertake a detailed survey before we manufacture your joinery in our workshop. We’re always delighted to show customers around our workshop, so if you’d like to see our team at work, we’ll be happy to welcome you.
Working in conservation areas
Properties in conservation areas need permission for aesthetic and functional changes to the exterior of the building from a local conservation officer. You should seek their input before installation, as they will advise on whether a planning application is necessary.
We can also carry out work on listed properties.
