Wooden Front Doors

The Sash Window Workshop manufactures and installs new wooden front doors for period homes

Over the years, we have created a Classic range of door designs, including Georgian front doorsVictorian timber front doors and Edwardian front doors which are sympathetic to period buildings. We can also provide bespoke detailing to match the style of any existing door as required.

Designed to be in keeping with the character of your home

Our timber front doors

  • Are made to order by craftsmen to each individual design that is agreed with you before manufacture.
  • Incorporate the very latest in door technology so as to ensure industry leading security, insulation, durability, finish and reliability.
  • Conform to or exceed relevant building regulations (FENSA) requirements for complete new timber doors including the frame.
  • Comply with European quality standards EN1279 for glazing and EN14351 for manufacturing quality where relevant.

Please note that your building is over 18 metres from the ground, FENSA will not issue a certificate. If you live in a property which is over 18 metres high, you will need to contact your local council to arrange for Local Authority Building Inspectors to certify that the Front door complies with building regulations.

Our bespoke Front doors can be made with or without glazing panels to suit your requirements and the period of your property. If you are unsure what style of Front door is right for your home, read our article on Matching the Right Timber Front Door Style for your Period Property.

Period Front Doors London and the South

Established in 1994, we have extensive experience installing replacement Front doors in London and across the South of England, including in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Hertfordshire.

When replacing your Front door we will also remove and dispose of your old Front door for you.

Replacement Timber Front Door and Frame

All our timber Front doors come fully factory finished, painted with the requested ironmongery. We replace both the Front door and frame, and can replace any side lights or fan lights if necessary.

We aim to use only the best materials. We consider a number of key factors when deciding what timber to use for our new front doors.  We are fully FSC® certified, and manufacture our timber doors from Accoya™ or durable hardwood.  Click here to find out more about the timber we use.

Our wide range of suppliers enables us to cater for a large range of applications and glass styles, such as: patterned glass; obscure glass especially for front doors; and safety and laminated glass.  Please click here for more information on glass and glazing.
