French Doors are suitable for both internal and external spaces. They are perfect for brightening lounge and kitchen spaces, allowing natural light to flow in. They are available in a variety of iconic fashions and are always classy and stylish. A set of French Doors is an improvement to any home-space. When internal they provide privacy; when external they provide a greater sense of openness, most obviously when they lead onto a deck.

French Door Reglazing

The current project was straightforward. The in frame French Doors were selected by a customer from our show room stock. Unfortunately some of the panes were absent and therefore needing reglazing. And because the panes were missing the advertised cost included repair costs. The old putty was chiseled free from the rebates to allow the new panes to fit smoothly. A fresh guide of putty was applied and, once the custom cut panes of glass were fitted, was allowed to set. The new panes were fixed using glazing pins and sealed using a fresh guide of putty.


There is little that we cannot modify. We can extend both height and width. We can trim the exact same. We offer a variety of services intent on meeting any specific requirements or visions. A door, as selected from our stock, may seem unsatisfactory when considering its dimensions or how it is hung. It is also possible that a single detail may prove unsatisfactory–perhaps a panel present instead of light letting glass. This can all be accommodated for. Hinges can be swapped. Any rebated sites can be packed. Unwanted panels can be removed and replaced with glass, for which we offer a catalogue of different templates.

We are also in the market of purchasing doors and other recyclables we consider appropriate for restoration. We invite anyone in the possession of such sought after materials and furnishings to contact us. We source from auctions; salvage from demolitions; purchase from home renovation sites and spring-cleaners and remodellers.
