Here’s what to ask… When thinking about any home refurbishment, take a moment to consider the windows and doors. They’re the nuts and bolts of a home and warrant time and investment. They play a crucial role in keeping heat in and crooks out, as well as being compatible with the style of your home. Robert Ditcham, founder of Ayrton Bespoke, has some good advice
Would you buy fish at the butchers? This is a specialist area, just like sourcing kitchens, bathrooms, heating and electrical solutions, or even swimming pools! You need to know what a product is capable of delivering for you, and for how long.
It’s difficult to imagine how you can patch up something over 130 years old. Decay and movement will compromise a job and leave it only half done. Rather like an old car, this option will keep costing you money. The best advice is to do nothing until you are in a position to do the job properly. So wait and then replace, don’t refurbish.
We will match anyone on price. Our manufacturing base is in Lithuania where skills are high but rent and wages are low. We source top-quality, slow-growing, engineered redwood from Latvian forests, which means it’s stable, strong and resilient. We buy glass and paint from the best producers in the world and employ first-class fitters to do a sympathetic and outstanding job in your home. If you are tempted by low prices, the reality is the product will not be able to do the job you are expecting it to do.
To truly understand the extent and quality of Ayrton Bespoke’s range, it’s worth the short trip to our showroom in Wandsworth where our in-house experts can answer your questions and design your bespoke windows and doors. The rule of thumb is: if you haven’t seen it, don’t buy it. Would you buy a car without seeing it? It’s around the same price!

“Wow wow wow! The entire experience from survey, quotation, scheduling and the work has been professional and without fuss. The guys on site were polite, did an amazing job and left the place exactly as I would’ve hoped. The windows look amazing and I’m so pleased.”
A slightly less known fact is that we sell plantation shutters. Perfect partners for our lovely windows!
