Built to last. Designed to stand out.
Our bespoke timber doors are built to last and designed to stand out. Regardless of whether your property boasts a contemporary or period aesthetic, exudes an industrial or country charm, we’ll collaborate closely with you to craft and install doors that are tailored to the specific needs of your property.
Each of our wooden doors is meticulously handcrafted to embrace the individual quirks and nuances that make your home unique, accommodating everything from slightly askew doorways to panels affected by building movement.
Safe and Secure
All our doors are fitted with Winkhaus full height multipoint rail locks. The Winkhaus multipoint is a one-piece locking mechanism consisting of a latch, deadbolt and two hooks with an automatic locking mechanism. These locks can either be operated with a lever handle or a key wind version which can maintain the appearance of a traditional door but still maintain a high security locking system.
Although softwoods and hardwoods are still very common, we encourage all of our customers to choose Accoya® wood for its unrivalled 50-year anti-rot properties.
We can tailor the glazing to your exact requirements, incorporating other glazing styles and specifications such as toughened glass, acoustic glass, and textured, obscured or stained glass.

We offer a full fitting service on all our doors and windows.
We go to great lengths to ensure our products have been fitted carefully and to a high standard, with as little disruption and mess for you, which is why our fitting service is carried by ourselves or a Richard James approved contractor. Read more
Transportation and installation of the vast majority of our products is carried out by our team at Richard James. If, however you would prefer to collect your item, or use your own contractor we can discuss this with you.
Any product not being fitted by us will require full inspection before we can release it.
The easy answer is yes; our paint supplier Teknos have a colour matching laboratory which means we can match almost any colour. Our most popular colour choices for customers, are inspired by Farrow & Ball and Little Greene colours.
However, if you have a colour in mind that is not within our range, we can discuss whether it’s possible to match to your desired colour through Teknos’ colour matching laboratory. The beauty of this option is that you get your perfect colour or colours and we get to paint your product with the best quality paint for the job.
Most types of untreated wood that are exposed to moisture will rot, however Accoya® wood has natural elements which help protect it from water ingress and rot. As an Accoya® approved manufacturer all our products come with Accoya’s ® unrivalled 50-year warranty for wood durability and a 25-year warranty in ground or freshwater.
We do still recommend painting or staining your product to prolong its lifespan.
All our timber doors are crafted in-house. This includes all wooden components; no beadings or mouldings are bought in.
Our door frames are made using Accoya® wood and our cills and threshes are made with hardwood; either Oak or Sapele. Accoya® wood is used because of its unmatched performance and durability, however it is too soft to use for a component that is going to get high levels of traffic such as door cills and threshes.
Timber species used by some manufacturers can include Oak, Sepele, Red Grandis, Utile, Iroko plus many more. Oak is perceived as being a superior timber for external joinery work, but this is a common misconception. Oak is highly susceptible to dimensional movement, making it an unreliable timber for use in external items which need to be operational all year round. This is why we encourage all of our customers to choose Accoya® wood. Not only is it the most sustainable timber available, it also gives us peace of mind as a manufacturer that our products will be problem-free in their operation, throughout their lifetime, due to its superior dimensional stability.
The only time we don’t use Accoya® is for internal joinery that is going to get high levels of traffic such as door cills and threshes. All our cills and threshes are made with hardwood; either Oak or Sapele.
Through our paint suppliers Teknos’ colour matching laboratory we can match to almost any colour scheme. Our most popular colour choices for customers, are inspired by Farrow & Ball and Little Greene colours.
However, if you have a colour in mind that is not within our range, we can discuss whether it’s possible to match to your desired colour through Teknos’ colour matching laboratory. Read more
All our products are hand-made and hand-finished. Each product is individually painted which means we can fully finish any door or window with a dual colour scheme, to match both the internal and external materials and decor of your home.
