Hi,
Has anyone got any recommendations for companies who design doors like the ones in this picture? I have found one company called Timberwindows.com but would like a few more to get quotes from. Based in London but could use Kent based companies too.

Thanks!

I don't see the problem. All the joinery companies make wooden doors that can be glazed, and wooden frames to suit. A carpenter can trim doors a bit, or frames a lot, or make up frames in any size from standard mouldings. A joiner can make a door in any size. Doors are so common that there are bound to be a number of local people. You don't need a big glossy sales company.

The most important thing is to find an installer who is competent and trusted to do a good job. Personal recommendation is best, including from someone in another building trade who works to a good standard and will tend not to associate with shoddy people, but try to interview local householders and look at the job after it has been in for a year.

There are also some websites where the advertisers pay to be listed, and unfavourable reviews are removed or edited. So not a good source of independent recommendation.

Would essex be any good? We had our front doors made (to match the originals that were being replaced) by a company based in Southend.
