What we do…

We specialise in manufacturing, installing and finishing double glazed timber windows and doors of Character and Historic homes in a manner sympathetic to the integrity of the property and in consultation with our clients desired outcomes.

We manage the whole process from start to finish with our own experienced and qualified staff and can facilitate large-scale scaffolding as required.

We work mostly with older Historic Homes and homes of Character, but if wooden windows are important to you, no matter what the age, we apply the same level of care and attention to detail regardless.

We won’t board you up like a derelict hostel while we work, and clean up every day.

What you want…

We know you have stressful jobs and busy lives:

  • You want fixed price quoting with no hidden charges
  • You don’t want the hassle of trying to find multiple trades for the same job
  • You want someone to take control of the process
  • You want great communication throughout
  • You want guys to turn up when they say they will
  • You don’t want to come home to a mess at the end of the day
  • You want a solid guarantee if anything goes wrong, no questions.

Top folks. They just replaced all the windows in my 1907 warehouse conversion with brand new double-glazed sashes, and... I couldn't be happier with the quality. They're always professional, courteous, get everything done on-time and with excellent communication. Highly recommended.read more

The double glazing is a dream - I feel like I’m in a cocoon! It's quiet and I can’t believe I’m looking forward to the... next windy day to see the curtains NOT blow in the wind🙃 You have such a great crew, cool people to have around every day. Always on time and they were responsive and always onto it with anything we asked, and they’re the tidiest tradies I’ve ever met🤩 And the quality of their work and those back in the workshop is outstanding.read more

The English Craftsman did an amazing job swapping out the old rattly windows in my 1912 villa with new double-glazed... windows. This was quite a challenge for the team as there’s not a single right-angle in the place! They were more than up to it - the bay window and bifolds are a particular success. Quality work from a quality outfit, highly recommend.read more

Manufactured and installed great looking bifold doors and windows with double glazing. Worked with us when wider... renovation job was delayed by several months. Fixed issues with weatherboard above door flashing that was outside the agreed scope. Very pleased with doors and windows which have received much favourable comment.read more

We live in a 1920s house that was partially double-glazed by a previous owner. We engaged with The English Craftsman to... double-glaze the remaining windows which included awkward triangular frames and windows with lead-lined panels. The results are great - the house is both quieter and warmer and the windows look very smart. The team were polite and pleasant to be around and communication was excellent. I would recommend them to others (and in fact have already done so).read more

We contracted the English Craftsman to create two bespoke liquor display joinery units for a restaurant fit out. They... were extremely professional in their processes and delivery a very high end product in a tight timeframe. We are very pleased with the outcome. I can't recommend these guys highly enough.read more

Paul supplied top quality products sympathetic to the needs of a heritage house. We noticed immediate improvements in... the road noise and reduction in the effort needed to heat the house. ​Reuben had a great attitude, was cheerful and kept us well informed of what would be happening each day. He cleaned up after himself at the end of the day, ensuring no mess was left for us to clear up. His pride in his work was apparent in the attention to detail demonstrated throughout the job.read more

We find the team (Paul & Richard) very professional. The installation process was smooth and very efficient. We were... very impressed by the quality of the joinery workmanship and the great attention to details. Paul W was also great in addressing any concerns we had immediately, trying to find a workable solution, which turned out to be better than we expected. He has also been very accommodating in making last minute changes (as we changed our mind). Works were completed on time, on budget and to a very high standard. We can't be happier with the great look of the new sash windows & doors, as well as the noticeable reduction in noise and warmth. We would highly recommend English Craftsman to anyone contemplating double glazing their villas or character homes.Luk & Tadashi, Wadestownread more

We used the English Craftsman to double glaze our windows. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome and the... quality of the workmanship. The windows look fantastic and we are already noticing the difference in warmth and how the house feels. Beforehand we had condensation on the windows and drafts coming through the sash windows but these issues have totally disappeared now. The finish to the windows is faultless. Dealing with everyone involved was so easy, from the initial planning stage to the work onsite. Everyone was very professional throughout and made very little disruption to us when on site. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the English Craftsman as the windows and outcome have totally exceeded our expectations.read more
