Our Joinery Services

What Our Clients Say

“The best way I can find of describing Deben Joinery’s work is handmade perfection.”

Maria Claydon

“Deben Joinery have supplied us with box sash windows and doors for an older property and the quality of hard wood and craftsmanship is exceptional. Tony and his team are so professional, knowledgeable and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend them for all joinery in particular their timber windows and doors.”

Colin Bevis

“We work on and design an eclectic collection of historic and traditional Suffolk style properties. Each property with its unique character. From a grand Grade II listed manor house and restored 15th century barn, to charming, thatched cottages and romantic retreats. It is extremely important to us that the final product is of high-end quality and equally important that we work with local, traditional tradespeople who strive in producing quality products.

“I personally designed very detailed, bespoke large sash windows, doors, and a large staircase to suit our Grade II listed manor house.
Paul is very knowledgeable and understood our brief, was always allowing time to personally visit site several times to attend meetings to help the process to run smoothly, with nothing too much trouble and very quick to assist. We are all very pleased with the outcome and have kept in touch with Paul and the team at Deben and look forward to working with in the near future. Paul and the entire Deben Joinery Staff are very professional and were great to work with.”

Jeff Pulford

“Local company of exceptional craftsmen. We have used Deben Joinery for some replacement windows and found them to be extremely knowledgeable about how best to improve designs and the finish is sublime.

“Our sash windows are very heavy but all can be opened with a single finger. (All year round).
The aspect that has surprised me the most is how much they block out sound and how thermally efficient they are. Even in the cold storms we’ve had recently. During installation the team were extremely neat and tidy leaving no signs they’d even been.

“Looking forward to working with them again in the future. “

Kurtis Rogers

“I just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts regarding the windows and that Scott and Simon have done a great job. I don’t think we could have had a better couple of guys installing. I trust that it helped by removing the inside woodwork, I now have quite a bit of work to do replacing it but thankfully my uncle has offered to take the lead.”

Mr. Sullivan

“Deben Joinery have produced several impeccable pieces of work for us over the last few years including oak stairs and a centrepiece 3.00m high external entrance door for a very high grade new house. Any minor issues have been dealt with very quickly and diligently, absolutely no problems in dealing with them and they are our “go to” joiners for all bespoke work.”

Mike Bailey

“It is all in the curves. How do you persuade the insides of a 50-year old oak tree to arc into a perfect 120cm diameter circle? Pure magic. But Graham and the team at Deben Joinery of wood-whispering geniuses make the impossible happen. The result is a beautiful feature, skilfully made.

“The Deben team doesn’t stop there: custom-made beds, wardrobes, dressing room 9-drawer cabinet, vanity and media room units, gates, banquet seating and furniture for our garden office from Accoya, American Black Walnut, European Oak and Ash. The craftsmanship is exceptional, with real attention to the fiddly details needed to turn this most contemporary of joinery packages from technical drawings into a reality that combines stunningly with the oddities and unevenness of a Grade 2 listed property.”

Laurence, London

“Deben Joinery is a longstanding specialist joinery contractor of our family business.  Their calibre of work is exceptional and has been proven throughout our working partnership.  Even challenging ideas and bespoke designs never seem to faze Tony and the team.  They take on and deliver each project with expertise, offering creative solutions if they feel that a project would benefit from it. For us, we see Deben Joinery as an extension of our brand and reputation, which is why we can work in collaboration with total confidence and trust.  Being a local business to us also has its advantages, plus there is always a warm welcome and the comfort of knowing that their craftsmanship and quality is consistently outstanding.”

Jon O’Dowd

“Deben joinery have recently installed new wooden windows at my victorian property. Paul and the fitters were extremely professional and a delight to deal with. Especially as the install was delayed due to listed building permissions taking longer than expected . Very pleased with the install and would recommend them to anyone and use them again in the future, thank you.”
Paul Davis

“Absolute Perfection. You have to see and feel the quality of my recently made and fitted front door to truly appreciate it! The precision craftsmanship and quality of the hardwood used to create my new door are both outstanding. The team at Deben Joinery have been so accommodating and friendly. Having worked with them on the design, materials and colour of the door, nothing was too much trouble! The result… I have a bespoke, solid, draught-proof, high-end, timber door made by a brilliant bunch of talented craftsmen. I have seen lots of their work and highly recommend them for all joinery.”

Samantha Kirk

“I’ve seen many versions of double glazed sash windows, they are a notoriously difficult thing to get right.

“I wasn’t disappointed with my first order from Tony at Deben Joinery, the attention to detail and the finish was excellent plus everything worked; smooth opening and closing, draught-proof and quiet. A real pleasure to fit and use.

“Over the years Deben Joinery has been my ‘go to’ company for doors, windows and anything else made out of wood. They’ve developed some great systems to deliver excellent quality on time in a friendly and efficient manner.

“We’ve worked together to solve design problems with staircases, roofs, windows, doors and even my personal scratch built Canadian canoe. I’ve watched the company develop and innovate, some of our projects involve some real joinery challenges and, with enthusiasm Deben has risen to each one.” 

Bamber Johnson

“The finish of the solid timber is one of the best I have come across in over 20 years in this industry.”

Simon Lewis
IPI Ltd

“Having purchased a front door from Deben Joinery nearly two years ago we are thoroughly pleased with how the quality and workmanship has stood the test of time with daily use.

“We are in the process of having further items of joinery being completed, nothing says a greater review than a repeat customer.”

Scott Harvey
“Paul at Deben Joinery was great to work with. He came out to my property a number of times, was patient with my decision making around details and went the extra-mile to produce information I needed for a listed building application. I visited the workshop to go over some final details and Paul showed me around, it was all very professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Deben Joinery again.”
Hanna

“I would definitely recommend Deben joinery for their high standard of workmanship. They have made several doors, and gates for us. Paul came promptly with lots of suggestions and samples of timber, and the final items were delivered on time and fitted professionally. Thank you very much for the dedication of your work and the quality of your joinery – your expertise shines through. We will be back.”

Mary Shuttleworth

“Paul was helpful and very patient with us as we were choosing windows for our listed property and submitting for consent. He produced several detailed window designs and quotes for us. After visiting the factory we choose to go with Deben Joinery as we were impressed at the quality of materials, workmanship, and the professional set up. They also offered an in house professional spray service so we could get a fully finished window with a different colour external and internal. Communication was brilliant and Paul and team worked hard to get our windows delivered on a tight schedule even though they had a lot of work on.

“The windows have transformed the house and even though we are not living in the house yet we can admire them! We were constantly kept informed of the progress of order and were told in advance of catches that weren’t in stock. When it did arrive someone came out to fit on site and also dropped off a primer which was really helpful for the architrave surrounding the window. Basically they have gone above and beyond.
We are now in the process of ordering a front door and cannot wait to work with Paul and the Deben Joinery team again to create a statement piece for our home.”

Lucy Dawson

“Deben Joinery have been outstanding. We have used them on a number of occasions over the years, most recently to supply and fit box sash and casement windows, new hardwood exterior and interior doors, and bespoke freestanding joinery to our period London and Suffolk homes.

“We couldn’t speak more highly of their work.  We were guided on the different types of wood (Oak, Tulip Wood and Utile) to best suit the purpose for each piece, and each item was painted and finished to our specific colour schemes. The quality of materials used, plus the friendly and professional service and standard of joinery, means we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again – well worth the investment!”

Joe Whitfield

“Highly recommended. If you are looking for an authentic and honest group of Craftsmen (and women) to work with, then Deben are it. Creative, quality focussed, precise and always happy to help. The Richmond range and bespoke sash windows, plus a variety of outside doors were designed, crafted and fitted to perfection. I asked for big and bold, and certainly got it. I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Paul and team.”

Zoe Baxter

“These guys were a pleasure to deal with, Paul was very helpful and got us just the look we were after. Eight windows and patio doors. Will definitely use them again!”

John Millington

“We thrive on winning repeat business for specialist builders work so working with the best subcontractors is a big part of our success.  Deben Joinery have produced the finest sash and casement windows, bespoke staircases, louvre and bi-fold doors and unique one-off pieces of joinery for us on many occasions. You just know that their work will always be made with precision, and that the quality of workmanship and materials they use is second-to-none.  Whether it is a large or small order, nothing is too much trouble. They really get under-the-skin of each project and their eye for detailing, finishing and reliability is why Deben Joinery is one of our repeat and preferred suppliers.”

Matt Smith
Oakridge Construction

“We are very happy with the windows and door and had very nice feedback from neighbours probably some custom for you hopefully. We would also like to thank you for your attentive replies to queries and sorting everything out for us immediately – it is much appreciated. Also like to thank the fitters who were great and did a fantastic job and left everywhere as neat and clean as possible.

“Would definitely recommend to others.”

Lorraine Walster

“Excellent product and lovely people to deal with”.

Colin Dean

“Deben Joinery made some replacement kitchen doors for me and I’m thrilled with them. The whole process from start to finish was seamless. The sales team cannot do enough to help you achieve the look you desire and the quality of workmanship is fantastic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and will be using them in the future for all my joinery requirements.”

Edith Vlogs

“I am delighted with the work Deben Joinery has recently carried out at our property. Following my initial meeting with Deben Joinery on site, we received a prompt and competitive quotation which, after accepting, they carried out a comprehensive survey of our house.

“Deben Joinery subsequently manufactured and installed new double glazed windows and doors throughout our property without a hitch. The quality of the product and tidiness of installation was exceptional and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Deben Joinery for any work of a similar nature.”

Paul Shadbolt
“Tony and team did fantastic job for our windows. Great quality and service from design to install. Would throughly recommend.”
John G

“The windows look super. Fantastic job thank you. Also, please pass on our thanks to the fitters – they were a pleasure to have around and did a super job.”
