Many years ago, John Williamson made the very conscious decision to offer a ‘complete’ joinery service. Many people are frustrated when an apparently simple project suddenly becomes complicated and stressful due to more than one tradesman or contractor being required. Although we can operate on a ‘supply only’ basis, the vast majority of our work is far more comprehensive. Commonly, JWJ design, manufacture, fully finish, glaze and install their own joinery. Our dedicated finishing workshop enables us to paint, varnish oil or stain the items our joiners produce.
A comprehensive finishing process, often 5 or 6 individual layers, has been developed over the years to ensure our products are given the best possible finish and the highest level of protection when they are new. It is always recommended though, for sensible, regular maintenance to timber products, to ensure they are suitably protected and continue to look as good as new. JWJ only recommend finishing brands whose standard and reputation match that of our joinery, so in most instances, we use Farrow & Ball and Dulux.
Glazing is carried out in-house. Whether it’s a timber beading system or putty, all glazing is carried out with the same meticulous care as the item was made with in the first place. Our glazing supplier is very aware of our rigorously high standards so the glass product itself matches anything we produce ourselves. Being able to offer the complete range of glass and glazing product also benefits us when designing all types of joinery, whether it’s a simple window, a glass balustrade for stairs or a splashback in a kitchen, we have the supplier to help us achieve the desired look.
