Our Company – The English Craftsman

The English Craftsman has a strong foundation of quality craftsmanship, and a passion for conservation. If you’re after real examples of our work, make sure to take a look at our portfolio, or view our client testimonials.


Our Beginnings

Our company started in 2001 when its founder, Paul Winstanley, turned his English-trained antique restoration skills to the New Zealand market. Following continued success, Paul developed and marketed his own brand of finishing products for use on delicate antiques. The Easy Strip product range now sells nationwide, and is favoured by conservationists and those after the most authentic finish.

In 2005 the company turned its eye towards double glazing. Realising that so many character homes were opting for aluminium frames, Paul decided to offer an alternative and developed a system of retro-fitting double glazing units to existing timber frames.

Combined with installing specialised draught seals and caring for historic integrity, this service is popular with home renovators who wish to maintain the character of their home whilst benefiting from the modern luxury and health benefits of double glazing.

The English Cratsman now employs a large team of qualified craftsmen, joiners, and painters selected for their character and passion for the industry. We believe this is why are clients testimonials are so stunning, because we place passion and integrity over our bottom line.
