A Collins window that could be salvaged with timber slips and a flannel. Once all the rot had been identified and machined out leaving exposed sound wood I could go about fitting the replacement parts.
This can become a lengthy project depending on the rot present and it is not always economically viable to do this. The only exception would be if a window or door was from a grade 1 listed property.
However this was economically viable and cost less than half that of a replacement window.
Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
