Brian made and fitted a replacement solid oak door and frame for me in late 2018. I live at a very exposed location, on a hill, subject to the extremes of weather. In spring 2019, Brian returned to further weather-proof the door and make minor adjustments and did so again in autumn 2020. This later work was outside the terms of the guarantee but he made no quibble about returning to do it. He takes great pride in his work and achieves high quality at reasonable cost. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a high quality bespoke product.

Brian and his team were working on my neighbours house today and just as they were leaving he knocked on my door with a tortoise! It was lost and found under his van! They were heading off for the day and didnt know who he belonged to but were reluctant to leave it behind. It wasn't ours but we took the little thing in as he looked hungry. Turned out he was a very feisty tortoise and wanted to bite everyone! Just before Brian left he popped in to ask about the little chap and if he was eating and drinking. He wasn't as he was desperate to escape! But we agreed to help reunite him with his owner. Thankfully through the power of Facebook 'Billy' was reunited with his family who only lived 6 doors down within the hour. Apparently he's been grounded for a month ;-) thank you Brian for helping the little dude out - you no doubt saved his little life!

We found Brian's website via Google and thought his range of doors looked interesting. We rang him to discuss our project. We needed a door that would give a face lift to our renovation -a dilapidated bungalow that had lain empty for more than 5 years. We had an aperture with dimensions out of the normal that needed to be met. He spoke knowledgeably about the woods and the methods he used and invited us to his workshop to view the processes. Our question was would he be able to deliver the finished product to us as he wasn't local? Luckily he confirmed that he liked to deliver the finished products himself all part of his continuous care package. We were intrigued and very glad to visit his workshop as we benefited from his passion, experience and expertise. He showed us strictly (almost in dance mode) the importance of direction in entering and exiting and made us think about where our door furniture should and should not go. We talked about security, light and visibility factors, the side panels and the lead times for delivery. He has excellent contacts who crafted elegant bespoke glazed side panels that set off the warmth solidity and beauty of the oak door. The end result -kerb appeal - simply stunning work of art that stops people in their tracks! We then decide whether they may enter or not. A unique stylish door delivered door to door in good time. It puts a smile on our faces whenever we come home. Can't recommend his work highly enough. Thank you Brian.
The best way to describe one of Brian's handcrafted doors is a thing of beauty! He is a master Craftsman and buying one of his doors will give your house true character that you won't get with a shop bought door or the dreaded PVC door. I would really recommend that anyone considering a new door pay Brian a visit where they can see first hand how his masterpieces are constructed. You won't want to go else where for a door! Brian gave us some really good advice on the best materials for our dream door and he was also able to build it exactly to our specifications. He also offered to provide us with a free bolt instead of a knocker which we didn't want. Brian thanks so much for our lovely door we love it!! Luke & Helen

Having read the reviews, seen the images and spoken to Brian I was confident that I was going to get a great product but I must say the service was excellent from start to end. Brian was extremely patient and helpful during the design phase which can’t have been easy for him but he made it easy for me! And the final product...? PERFECTION. This is a professional who really values the finer details. Thank you Brian and team!

Outstanding service and a quality final product! Brian was nothing but a pleasure to deal with. He clearly comes with a wealth of experience and made various suggests to make the final result as good as it could be. We had 3 on site visits during the process to discuss the finer detail and also went to Brian's workshop to see the work in progress. Highly recommend if you get the chance! Nothing was too much for Brian - he even salvaged the stain glass from our old door and made it into a wall hanging! We can't speak highly enough of The Front Door Shop and would recommend to anyone in Leigh on Sea or surrounding area.

We have just had a front door fitted by Brian and it is stunning ! Brian is a a real genuine man who has been a pleasure to work with. It is so nice to be able to recommend him as a top quality craftsman.

Very pleased with our new front door. Brian fully understood our requirements immediately and his firm have made and expertly installed a lovely hard wood made-to-measure door well within an exacting timeframe. Excellent service and reasonable price.

Amazing job from start to finish, met with Brian for consultation and he put our mind to ease. He knew what we wanted as soon as we sat down. We couldn't be more pleased and would always refer Front Door Shop to our family and friends.

Wow! What an amazing service. Brian was brilliant from start to finish, giving us tips and ideas on what would work well. Nothing was too much trouble and he even came back after the door was all fitted to fit a plinth that he had made as there was a small gap between our hallway floor tiles and the frame of the door. Can’t recommend Brian enough! We are absolutely delighted with the finished product and have had so many compliments on our new door.
