Could not recommend Brian more highly. The service he provides is second to none. We wanted a traditional front door to replace a flimsy UPVC one. We contacted Brian after reading reviews online, the gallery of his bespoke doors was just amazing. The finished job looks just perfect, we cannot thank Brian enough for his honesty and great advice.

A pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Brian very quick to respond to any questions we had regarding choice of door etc. Very patient as we couldn’t decide initially! On the day of fitting our door he arrived on time and proceeded to uninstall the old door and refit the new one. All rubbish cleared all we have to do now is paint! Thanks again we’re very pleased.

We absolutely LOVE our new front door! Thank you so much to Brian, who is a complete star - informative, knowledgable and a master in his craft. We couldn't recommend The Front Door Shop highly enough. We just need our hallway to look as smart as our front door now! Cheers again Brian!
"I researched many companies before contacting Brian. His website impressed me with the galleries of real jobs completed and testimonials. It was also clear he was a skilled craftsmen. Brian travelled from Southend to Horsham in Sussex to measure up our door as it was not an off the shelf door. I was keen to replace the UPVC door which was spoiling the look of our Victorian house. Brian was really easy to communicate with as we did not meet in person until the day of fitting. Brian went the extra mile to ensure I got the door and door furniture I wanted. I sent Brian a photo of a door I found on pinterest and it was reproduced it exactly. The door is a work of art and has brought our house back to a traditional look with high quality craftsmanship. I have had so many compliments from neighbours and friends and would recommend him highly."
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.
Thank you to Brian (for making) and Brian and Martin (for fitting) our wonderful new bespoke hardwood front door in Blackheath, London. We are particularly happy with the custom design, which lets in so much light. The build quality and joinery is really good, with extra thick wood. Everything fits perfectly, and it swings shut with a solid click, just like a high end BMW (I imagine!). Good attention to security with triple locks and toughened double glazed units. Brian and Martin made a couple of initial site visits to measure up, discuss designs, and check the process for removing the old and fitting the new doors. There was a personal touch throughout, with good communication. The build was completed on time, and the fitting carried out in a day (as promised). The overall price was extremely good value compared with quotes from London companies for less high spec products. So we are very happy, and would definitely recommend Brian, Martin/ The Front Door Shop/ BD Joinery to anyone looking for a new high quality door.
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!
