Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Do you have minimum runs?

There are no minimum runs for on-line products. For bespoke products there is will be a fixed cost that will take account of the complexity and linear requirements of the order.

What materials are available?

We can machine skirtings and architraves in almost any timber that is requested. We use FSC timber and have two categories with four main types of wood:

  • Softwood
    • Pine (Redwood)
  • Hardwood
    • Tulipwood
    • Sapelli
    • American Oak

What lengths and thicknesses do your products come in?

The standard length of our products is as follows:

  • skirting boards are 3.6 metres
  • architraves are 2.4 metres
  • dado rails are 3.6 metres

Thicknesses available range from 26mm with other thicknesses available on special request.

Do you deliver anywhere or can I pick up my order?

We can deliver anywhere in the UK within 5 to 7 working days of an order being received, paid for and committed to production before 2:00pm. The costs for the service where possible are normalised but unfortunately to more remote locations we may have to charge a surcharge due to carrier charges. Customers are also welcome to come and collect their orders.

Any international deliveries will be quoted separately.

What is the turnaround time?

On-line products will be despatched within 5 to 7 working days of the order being placed, with primed orders taking up to a further 2 working days at certain times of the year. Please note these timescales apply on orders placed before 2:00pm. All orders received after this time will be processed the following day.

Do you pre-prime your mouldings?

Our whole product range can be supplied pre-primed which includes pre-sanding, priming of the first coat of micropourous white paint on the face side and final sanding prior to despatch.

Can you match any profile?

If your requirement is not from our on-line range of profiles, we are able to match your requirements through the making of specific cutters and moulding solutions. The cost of each of the bespoke solutions will be quoted in advance of undertaking the work and will be dependant of quantity.

On average this would take up to 3 weeks following written approval of your design.

How can orders be paid for?

Payment for orders can be made via our secure online shop on the website using Visa, Mastercard, Switch, and Electron.

Telephone payments can also be made by contacting 0845 519 1554 with your credit card details.

Payment for all Bespoke orders will need to be made over the telephone.

Payment by Cheque or a Bank Draft may also be accepted at the discretion of the Management, however, in such cases, the goods would not be manufactured or dispatched until cleared funds are available.

Are your prices competitive?

As we manufacture all of our products ourselves, we can offer competitive prices - add to this the minimum run lengths being only 2.4 metres for architraves and 3.6 metres for skirting boards and dramatic savings can be achieved over comparable products offered in other wood yards or retailers.

Can I get a sample of any of the designs?

We can supply samples of any of the designs and recommend suitable combinations. To order samples, please email us at with your required designs or request combination sets. There is a charge of £2.99 for each sample ordered which covers postage and administrative costs.

What size architraves and skirting best suit my needs?

A key reference to sizing is the proportion of the ceiling and the door heights. Our standard range can also be extended to incorporate greater height proportions.
