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
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.
Brian helped design our new front door, and all the way to installation provided progress updates and asked questions in order to ensure we got exactly what we intended. The end result is that we could not be happier! Brian's attention to detail is second-to-none which all adds to the finish, the quality surpassing that which could be bought off the shelf. Installation was also achieved with minimum fuss and disruption to property and lead time was half of that being quoted elsewhere. Great craftsmanship coupled with great service.
Very happy with our new front door and side panel from Brian. The quality is excellent and the installation is very professional.
We had a door and the wide surrounding frame made. Brian did all the measurements and the frame and door fitted perfectly. The finished job is of a very high standard; we are delighted with it and everyone who sees it is very impressed.
"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."
Excellent service with a fantastic end product. So pleased with my street door!
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!
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.
