Timber door renovation and repair
Renovating and repairing your original timber door is a really cost-effective way of upgrading, without splashing out on expensive replacement. From medieval cottages, Victorian terraces and Georgian squares, we’ve renovated all kinds of doors and made them as good as new – if not better.
Victorian, Regency, Edwardian door repair and renovation
Many timber doors in period properties no longer fit correctly due to movement of a building over the years, and this can mean they rattle, let in draughts, or – worse – do both. We can easily tackle these problems by readjusting the door, and using modern materials that ensure a longer shelf life for the frame.
Replacing or restoring your timber doors
We like to restore and reuse the materials from your original timber doors wherever possible, and will only ever suggest replacements when the doors are completely beyond repair. We take all our experience in sash and casement windows and apply it to doors – restoring all types of timber door to make them look as good as new, and work in a more energy efficient way.
Environmental benefits – draught proofing your wooden doors
We work with a range of sustainably sourced, high quality timber – ensuring that your old doors are restored to look as good as the day they were first installed. Our door renovation system and draught proofing can also help to cut your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
Noise and warmth
When it comes to living comfortably, your doors can make all the difference. We offer a range of noise reduction and heat saving options, depending on the listing of your home and your budget. So if you’re based near a busy road (or fed up of the gusty wind and seagulls in Brighton!) we can draught proof your doors, or perhaps insert acoustic glass or double glazing into any panels to make life a little easier.
At the same time as doing the renovations, we can also improve the energy performance of your door by using the same methods and principles we use for sash windows and casement windows.
Exact replica timber doors
If we need to replace any part of your door, we always make sure that the architectural integrity is maintained and that everything is created as an exact match to the original.
I was worried our front door had seen better days, which I was devastated about. It was the original door, with beautiful stained glass. Top Notch repaired the door and draught proofed it at the same time, now it looks great and the hallways is a lot warmer during the winter.”Morgan – BN3 – Hove
