Tony Carr, Director, leads the businesses, along with our team of talented and experienced craftsmen. For many years we have also built up an external team of reliable specialist suppliers and trusted builders too. We collaborate with those that understand the level of quality of workmanship and materials we require for every project.
Deben Joinery blend the ideas of the designer, the hand skills of the maker and the best choice of materials to produce high quality work. Each project or piece is a personal reflection of our craft.
We believe passionately in the continuation of craft and welcome apprentices to ensure that we’re passing on our knowledge to a new generation and supporting the longevity of future expert joiners. In an age of mass production and uniformity, we are proud to still be making as much by hand as possible using a team of experienced craftsmen with skills honed on the bench for more than 35 years and youthful dynamism of apprentices learning traditional techniques.
Our Brand Today
The Deben Joinery group of companies comprises two brands: Deben Joinery and Deben Windows.
Continuing Our Mission
Our mission remains simple: to manufacture, design, deliver and delight
Bespoke joinery service is at the heart of our business. We’re very proud of the reputation and relationships that we’ve built with our clients, many of whom have become good friends and longstanding customers.
From our initial meeting, we take time to learn about the client and their ambitions for each project. Here we leverage our knowledge and experience to explore the creative, financial and practical feasibility.
Our team will carry out a survey to ascertain the precise dimensions of the space or work out the exact tolerances for built-in furniture. We can also pre-empt any access, integration, delivery or installation requirements.
We are industry accredited by the British Woodworking Federation
What Our Clients Say
“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!”
“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.
