New Front Door

Postby chorister » Sat May 12, 2018 11:10 am

We are planning to replace the solid 1980s front door of our 1902 terraced house with a new one, and want it to be an accurate and secure reproduction, as the house still has many original features.

Can anyone suggest a specialist contrator? We have heard about The Bespoke Front Door Company https://www.bespokefrontdoor.co.uk/ - has anyone had experience of them?


Thanks in advance.

Following this thread. We need a sound-resistant front door

I want to do the same, so would be interested in any recommendations. There is a door company on St Johns Road that I want to check out too:

We bought our new door from the London door company and it was fitted (and maybe made) so badly/wonky by them, that it has gaps that lets cold air in during the winter.

To their credit they have tried hard to fix the issues, but for a door that is priced at £3k+, its not impressive at all. I would not buy from them again.

We recently had one made by Chapel Lane (who also made our Sash Windows, following a recommendation here). It was fitted yesterday and I'm delighted with it! Very reasonable price and timings and I'm super happy with the quality.
