Why Restore Your Stable Door

Replacing stable doors erases a piece of your home’s history. Restoration allows you to retain the original craftsmanship and details, ensuring these doors continue to tell the story of your period property. Studies show that well-maintained period features can increase your home’s value by up to 15%.

Skilled restoration addresses any issues with the locking mechanisms, hinges, and weather seals, ensuring your doors operate smoothly and securely. The lower solid panel provides continued privacy and security for pets and children, even when the top section is open for ventilation.

Over time, drafts can develop around stable doors. Restoration addresses these issues by meticulously repairing weather seals and ensuring a perfect fit. This translates to a more comfortable living environment year-round and lower energy bills.

Stable Door Restoration Process

Stable door restoration is the process of repairing, rebuilding, and refinishing these doors to their former glory, addressing the issues and restoring their functionality and beauty. Here’s what this process typically entails. A detailed inspection, the repair and the finishing touches.

We will thoroughly assess the condition of your windows, identifying any areas needing repair or replacement. This includes checking for damaged frames, replace rotten timber sections with precisely matched wood, and restore the functionality of hinges, locking mechanisms, and weather seals. Using traditional techniques and high-quality materials, our joiners will address any issues identified during the inspection. Depending on your preferences, we can repaint your doors in a colour of your choice, or strip and refinish them. This restoration process can significantly enhance the look of your home.
