Mr Sherlock kindly left us feedback over on Freeindex, you can find it here (you’ll have to scroll down a bit to find it!)

Mr Stewart, Aberdeenshire –

I eventually got the new doors stained and fitted after our glorious rainy weather eased up and let me get the job done.
If you want to put the attached pictures on your website then you have my permission to do so.
I stained the doors with Sikkens Rosewood HLS base coat and Cetol Filter 7 stain top coat. The windows are fitted with Polycarbonate Twinwall panels. As you will see from the pictures they make a massive difference to the look of the garage and will look even better once the garage outer walls are painted too. Every one of my close neighbours have commented on how good the doors look and have made positive comments to me on how easy and quickly they were fitted.
Once again many thanks for a very good product and workmanship from yourselves.

Mr Wilkinson, North Yorkshire –

The gates arrived safely a short while ago. I’ll do battle with your excellent packaging this afternoon. I can’t see there being any problem, but I’ll let you know either way. Thanks again for your excellent service.

Mr V, East Sussex –

Just to confirm I have received both gates in very good condition and I am very pleased with the quality of them.

I received my gate yesterday and I am delighted with it. It is a thing of beauty and exactly what I wanted! Thank you so much for all your assistance and advice. I will recommend you to all my friends – they will be green with envy when they see the gate – It is the best gate in Glenrothes – might even be the best gate in Scotland!

Mr O’Connell, London –

The gates are great. It took me a while to hang them but I was present to hear a great deal of praise from passers by. Hopefully you will get some more orders as a result.

Mr Gavey, Jersey –

Received the gates on Wednesday, just a quick email to say how impressed we are with the quality of workmanship and the service provided.I shall be recommending you to everyone who asks.

Mr Kershaw, Conwy –

I have now installed the gates with no problems whatsoever – the measurements were spot on. They have had four coats of Sikkens and look great, they have already attracted favorable comments. I am very impressed by your highly professional approach to your business and, of course your carpentry skills. I wish you every success with your business in the future and I shall not hesitate to recommend you.

Mrs Milsom, Buckinghamshire –

Thanks for the gate, it arrived exactly when you said it would and was installed yesterday. We are very impressed by the quality – it looks really good. Thanks for your great service.

Mr Beazley, Kent –

I’ve just got around to unpacking and fitting the doors you delivered to me last November. I am very pleased with the doors and the craftsmanship is excellent. I can’t speak highly enough of the doors, the framing for the windows is great and the measurements were spot on. The preservatives you recommend, Sikkens – I have used a Teak finish. Neighbours have commented and said how nice they look. I am really proud of them and the price including delivery makes me feel I have a real bargain.

Mr Walkley, Cheshire –

Just to let you know that the gate arrived safe and sound about an hour ago, and all is well due to your extremely through packaging. I am very impressed with the quality of your workmanship and all measurements seem spot on. I’m well looking forward to seeing it pride of place in my yard when I get round to fitting it! Many thanks for supplying this for me, and I’ll recommend you to anyone who asks where I got it from.

Mr Anness, Cambridgeshire –

Many thanks for the gates we are delighted with them.
I am a Cabinet maker and can turn my hand to most skills working with wood, so I do know the difference between a good and bad job. I am pleased to see in the construction the use of wedged mortice and tenon joints, this is how I would have done the job, had I the time and a workshop big enough to construct them. We will certainly give your details to anyone who asks where we got the gates from.

Mr Armstrong, East Sussex –

My sincere compliments to the team for the splendid gates which are now installed and look very fine indeed. Thanks for the very business like way in which you dealt with the order and kept us advised at each phase of the process. Once again many thanks to all for a great product.

Mr Aquilina, London –

I received the gate yesterday. Thank you for your professionalism, I will definitely recommend you.

Thought you might like to know that the carpenter who is going to fit the gates said that you had done a nice job, and he thought it was really well made. So thank you.

I would be quite happy for you to use my comments, most people are quick to complain but often forget to compliment.

I would add that you have kept me informed throughout the process, gave me clear information and guided me when ordering. Thank you again.

Harbir, Surrey –

We have just finished fitting the gates and doors. The gates were done a couple of weeks ago and today we have done the garage doors. They look amazing, thank you so much – they were worth the wait.

Ms McQueen, Vale of Glamorgan –

Mr C. Robinson (The Village Carpenter), Berkshire –

This is just a rather belated note to say thanks for the pair of Alyn doors which you supplied for this order. The quality of the construction was excellent and I was very impressed with your excellent packing which ensured that the product survived the ravages of the transport company. The existing garage door aperture turned out to be almost perfectly square, so fitting was achieved with an absolute minimum of trimming. How often does THAT happen?!! Most of my work is on interior carpentry but I will certainly use you again if called upon and will recommend you to others. Thanks again, I hope your business continues to do well.

Mr G. Smith, Hampshire –

Mr R.Williams, Isle of Wight –

Just to let you know that I’ve unpacked the gate and it looks superb. I have a bit of a reputation for being a perfectionist , but I can only admire the workmanship and finish to the gate.
