Timber Front Doors: A Case Study in Harrogate, Yorkshire

Accoya Timber Door Harrogate

Harrogate, a charming town nestled in the picturesque region of Yorkshire, is renowned for its stunning architecture and rich heritage. When it comes to enhancing the aesthetic appeal of homes, timber front doors have become increasingly popular among homeowners in Harrogate. In this case study, we will explore the journey of homeowners who opted for timber front doors and the transformative impact it had on their properties.


Refreshing the Timber Front Doors: A Customer’s Request

Earlier this year, we received a request from a customer in Harrogate who was seeking a replacement timber front door. The customer’s goal was to revitalise the appearance of her property by introducing a new timber door. The existing door lacked insulation, had a faulty locking system, and was showing signs of wear and tear.

Craftsmanship in Detail

Our design team collaborated closely with the customer, and after a visit to our workshop, she felt confident to proceed with the order. The chosen timber door features a heritage design, incorporating a secure multipoint locking system. To achieve the desired aesthetic, we applied a factory paint system in a custom colour, meticulously matched to Farrow & Ball’s elegant French Gray. Complementing the door, a bespoke ironmongery package was carefully selected from Willow & Stone, featuring an exquisite antique brass finish.


Collaborative Efforts with a Builder

To enhance the overall installation, we connected the customer with a skilled local builder who expertly installed a new stone lintel and added intricate detailing at the top of the entrance. This addition truly accentuated the beauty of the new door. Through collaborative efforts, we synchronized our schedules to ensure the door was fitted seamlessly the following day, in coordination with the builder’s presence on-site.


The Journey Continues

Currently, we are diligently manufacturing the customer’s next project, eagerly anticipating the installation of the new casement windows in just a few weeks’ time. The journey of transforming this customer’s home continues, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.

Highly recommend this company. The installation of our door was carried out quickly and efficiently. The end result is fabulous - a bespoke, made to measure door exactly as we wanted. The follow up service was excellent, including a call from Rob to check all was in order and Susie checking in on the day of installation to ensure all was well. Fantastic. Very happy.

From Start to finish Robert and his team have been fantastic. Designing and fitting our front and back door and curved windows and French doors for the kitchen extension. The results speak for themselves, beautiful workmanship and they went above and beyond to get the finished (slightly tricky!) look we desired. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends and family and using them again.

Thanks to Rob and the team we now have a beautiful new back door, bringing light to the hallway and much needed draughtproofing too. Communication (mostly Susie) was prompt, friendly and helpful from start to finish. Design, construction and workmanship (including Andy, the perfectionist fitter) are all excellent. And the price was very competitive. Five stars and an unreserved recommendation.

An excellent company to deal with, creating a bespoke door and window which maintain the heritage of the house.

We would not hesitate to recommend them.

The two owners and the Joiners are fabulous. We have been trying to a buy a door for 2.5 years: we took one to small claims court, 3 provided quotes and then changed their minds.Bailey Hague turned up when they said they would to measure up, provided a quote, a start date and then delivered.The Joiner who fitted the door was a delight; turning up when they said he would and we now have a new door.Really easy

Susie, Rob and all the team were brilliant to work with. Super fast response from initial contact to finishing the first part of our project. No amendment to the design was a problem and dealt with quickly. The quality of the windows and doors are fantastic and they don’t just look good from the outside, the finished joinery on the inside is the icing on the cake. Our old cottage now looks like it should! Thank you 😊
