We will prepare a quotation based on your requirements. If you already have architectural drawings, or a sketch or photo with estimated dimension, then please send us a copy so we can provide a quotation. Otherwise, we can visit to take detailed measurements, advise on design where necessary, and provide a quotation for you to review.
To accept the quotation, we require confirmation and a deposit. There is then a typical 6-8 week lead time while your joinery is manufactured. (This can vary depending on our timber stock and the complexity of design).
Thame Joinery is a supply-only manufacturer so we can concentrate on what we are good at - making your joinery! We supply direct to builders or to private customers who want to use their own joiner or fitter. Should you need a fitter, however, we can readily put you in touch with someone appropriate to your needs.
If you are replacing existing windows, you will probably be subject to building regulations, which require you to fit replacement windows with a mimimum level of thermal efficiency. This is conventionally achieved using sealed double glazed units.
In some circumstances, yes, but you would need to seek approval from your local conservation officer. Thame Joinery does make double glazed windows that are fitted in listed buildings.
Mostly thick (24mm) sealed units that comply or exceed the current building regulation requirements.
For a heritage style these are often used with applied glazing bars. We also use slim double glazed units that allow a more traditional appearance to doors and windows, although the glass costs are generally higher.
We do offer this service although by no means all our customers ask for fitted locks or furniture. The only locks we offer to fit on doors are high performance multipoint locks (also known as Espagnolettes) for single, double or stable doors.
We do not offer a guarantee (as only installers can be members of guarantee-backed schemes) – you should speak to your builder or installer. However, we are members of the British Woodworking Federation which gives you assurance over the quality of our processes and products.
Like everything we do, we are often asked to use a particular timber for a job. However we prefer to work with joinery grade softwood (pine and Douglas Fir) or sustainably produced hardwoods. Many of the durable hardwoods are sourced from the tropics but can be supplied with sustainability certification (FSC or other).
We can supply glass loose or fit it for you, together with ironmongery. We can apply primer or base coat stain if required.
