I am very happy with the final product regarding window installation at the Church Street site.

The workmanship is of a very high quality, paint finish is very good, and the glazing bars have been manufactured, cut and installed impeccably, communication was very good between myself, Jimmy, Dan and Adam, their client handling was also very good. Good team of lads!!

I will be putting any future work your way and would recommend you to anyone seeking bespoke manufactured specialist Joinery.

The windows are fab!! We are absolutely delighted with the craftsmanship of the windows and the fitting service was excellent too. We are happy to recommend you to other customers should you wish to refer them to us or if anyone wants to view them as an example.

We have had two orders from these guys and all I can say is how nice they are to deal with. I have been through a lot of suppliers and the windows and door are by far the best we have ever had, as a joinery company we fit a lot. Keep up the good work and my next order will be coming shortly.

We found the service you gave us absolutely fantastic from start to finish.  We had other joinery/window suppliers in to quote for the replacement windows but didn’t find any of them matched the quality of your windows, in particular the attention to detail. (In terms of price you were similar to them but we felt more confident in the quality of the windows from you). We have been absolutely delighted with the windows you’ve supplied to us. They are in keeping with our Victorian house but the difference to noise reduction and draughts has made a huge difference. We cannot fault the service from start to finish and the quality of the windows is fantastic. We’re looking forward to you replacing the other windows in the house in the coming year.

I needed new windows for my entire house. Richard James made me excellent quality windows and frames and arranged for them to be fitted. They are beautifully designed, built to last in hardwood and came beautifully spray painted. I am amazed how good they look. They allow so much more light into my home. 
My neighbours all admired the craftsmanship and one of them hired the firm to fit new windows throughout her house.  She was very happy with the results and the trouble Dan and the team took to meet her individual requirements. Other neighbours are keen to follow suit. 
All the team have been really friendly and helpful and gave useful advice. We were delighted to get such good quality work for a reasonable price.  They made the whole process a pleasure.

The finished product of our staircase is not only beautifully crafted but also the centre piece of our home. We couldn’t be happier with the service, advice and staircase. Highly recommend the talented and friendly team at Richard James joinery.

We would like to thank all the guys at Richard James for a fantastic service. It was great to have such a friendly and helpful team working for us, not to mention the high quality of our new windows. Couldn’t recommend this company more highly.
