CASE STUDIES

Gate and fencing replacement

April 2018

This customer contact Wealden joinery to replace the fence and gate which had rotted at the front of this property with an exact match , this was due to the property being grade listed. Due to this being exposed to the weather and with the road directly opposite we decided to manufacture this all from Accoya including the new posts and handrails. The intricacy of this project was the main focus as many hours were taken in recreating the exact same design as before.

Complete renovation of external joinery – Burwash

March 2018

Sometimes a little extra to the design can finish off a property nicely

Our client contacted us in regards to this property in Burwash, East Sussex. This property required a full restoration to the external joinery some of which was to be painted and for some to be made out of Oak. As this property was grade listed it was important that we kept the design as close to the existing as possible. There was many different manufacturing techniques required as the designs varied from each item.

This project also required us to use different types of glazing that are available to us some were single glazed with applied steels to give the diamond effect, others were slim-light units which provide us with an alternative solution to double glazing when it is not possible to do so.

As you can see the Front Door is a focal point of the property with the design giving it the wow factor required. this was made from complete prime grade European oak alongside the stainless steel fittings which compliment the door perfectly.

Window and Door Replacement in Barn Conversion

August 2017

The couple who owned this beautiful Barn conversion needed to replace the external windows and doors throughout this property. Wealden joinery were tasked with replacing the existing with double glazing and for these to be as low maintenance as possible this was achieved using Accoya as the timber of choice because of its properties to withstand rotting along with the fact that it does not swell or twist.

Colour was a big factor in this job and many samples were produced to help the customer make the right decision. Security was also high on their priorities as they wanted to feel safe and secure. It was decided that multi-point locking systems were to be applied to all items to give them the highest standard of security possible.

Bespoke joinery really comes into its own when an unusual shaped window needs to be made. Five original Victorian arched windows in the grade 2 listed stable of a stately home in Hartfield needed replacement.
