Timber Entrance Door
The Anderson family have lived in a delightful stone built house dating to 1878 for the past 9 years, situated in picturesque grounds next to a church within a conservation area.
Out with uPVC door and in with Timber
“We inherited a rather glum white uPVC door when we moved into the house, which was out of keeping with both the style and period of the property” explains Mr Anderson. “My wife had always very keenly wanted to change the door, whilst I was in less of a hurry to do so, holding the opinion that ‘a door’s a door’ and was also concerned that trying to fit a new one in the unusually large and shaped opening was going to be a bother.”
Discovering our local showroom
“We saw the advert for our local showroom, Timber Windows at Harewood in a magazine and headed out one weekend for a look, with no intention of actually buying at that stage, although we knew we wanted a traditional timber door in a modern colour. Our impression of the showroom was one of a fantastic range on display, lovely quality and it was very relaxed; no hard sell, no pressure whatsoever – we took plenty of time to look around and decided to go ahead during that visit.”
A vast range and plentiful door choices
The Timber Windows range has lots of options to choose from in almost every aspect of the design as Mr Anderson describes, “from this stage, the process was very interactive, we were able to choose all the different elements, we were very impressed with being able to personalise the door to such an extent. We then had a home visit for the measuring and survey.”
An Oxford Blue Chadlington solid timber door was selected along with the dual colour option to have a more subtle shade of Straw on the inside, with the light into the hallway still being provided by the pointed semi-circular top light through obscured Kathedral glass. A brass letter plate and Chatsworth handle along with a weighty doctor’s knocker together complete the look.
I really do appreciate the difference and that a door most definitely isn’t just a door – we love it – only when you make the change do you realise – I would recommend Timber Windows to anybody.

Installation was a breeze and the product wholly satisfying
Mr Anderson explains that he was always nervous about the installation process but his concerns turned out to be unfounded, “I couldn’t help feeling nervous about the fitting and this was one of the reasons I’d put off having it changed all this time but having dealt with the team at Timber Windows I had great confidence in their ability to fit it well; the process was extremely quick, absolutely stress-free and the frame fitted the opening like a glove – it was a truly excellent experience.”
“The door had to be high quality, good appearance, secure and solid – this ticks all the boxes.”
“Overall, we are delighted with the door; it hangs well and operates beautifully. I really do appreciate the difference and that a door most definitely isn’t just a door – we love it – only when you make the change do you realise – I would recommend Timber Windows to anybody.”
