I really recommend Crown Joinery as a reliable joinery company.

Mr. Alex is a very good joiner and craftsman. He did all my tilt and turn windows in hardwood and I'm satisfied with the quality and price of his job.

Another recommendation for Alex at Crown Joinery - he swapped a rotting, drafty back door on our kitchen extension with a chunky, hardwood, double glazed, draft-proofed replacement and a matching window.
When he came round to fit it, he had a nightmare - the previous door seemed to have been installed in little more than cardboard, but he worked solidly for two days, found an emergency bricklayer and did a fantastic job.
A double-glazed hardwood door isn't cheap but it has made the kitchen much warmer already.

I'd second the recommendation for Alex at crown joinery, he has done a number of windows for me now, very good quality, and a good price. I would not go anywhere near .

I can recommend you speak to Alex at Crown Joinery in East Dulwich. Www.crown-joinery.co.uk
They made a door from our home and made it from scratch with beautiful joinery and precision. The quality is fabulous and he will make the job perfect for you. He also gave us a choice of woods in wpdifferent price brackets so that we could choose how much to spend.
Email him at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I am sure he will be happy to come and work out a price for you.
A real quality local craftsman. He also made some really detailed window pieces for us too - all bespoke.

We have recently had some bespoke cupboards and shelves made for our kitchen by Alex at Crown Joinery (020 8693 7898 www.crown-joinery.co.uk). We are very pleased with the process and the results. A very good job with careful workmanship at a reasonable price. I got the reference from this forum initially - so thanks EDF.

Just wanted to add another recommendation to this thread. Alex built and fitted a bathroom cabinet for us - it is a solid piece of workmanship and creates a lot of storahe for us!

I'd like to recommend Alex from Crown Joinery. He has just done an excellent job on my French doors, using thermal glass and making sure everything was just as we wanted it. He is a lovely, knowledgeable chap, takes his time, but well worth it.

We've just had a front door made and fitted by Alex at Crown Joinery and are very happy with the result. The cost was good compared to the major door companies (who we also got quotes from) and we are impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship and the service. He's a perfectionist and so ended up painting additional parts of the door frame to ensure the door looked its best.

We would recommend Crown Joinery

I would highly recommend anyone to use Crown Joinery they build and fitted a lovely main door and 2 sash windows all in hardwood for a really good price comparing it to other companies as i tried London Door Company they almost wanted double the price to use accoya. Crown Joinery manufactured everything while i was away in holiday keeping me updated of the progress with pictures all hassle free. Would definetly use them again in future. A big thank you to Alex and his team outstanding job.

We've also just had a front door fitted by Crown Joinery and I can echo the above comments. His costs were competitive, his service and personal attention to the quality were to a very high standard. The door we asked for was a bespoke size and also painted to our specifications and were delivered to the exact requirements.


Front Door - Crown Joinery
Posted by dimjim79 March 19, 08:12PM

Hi if you are looking for a new front door then look up Alex at Crown Joinery on Tyrell Road. Alex and team designed, built and fitted our new door and we are absolutely delighted with the results. It is far better than we could have expected and already puts our neighbours to shame! the cost was more than competitive (especially when compared to big door companies) but what stood out was the personal service and Craftsmanship that went into it. Details are: Alex, 07972 022354, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thanks. James
Remmendation - Crown Joinery - for new Front doors etc
Posted by supermonkey March 14, 06:21AM

I would like to recommend Alex of Crown Joinery, www.crown-joinery.co.uk/ who has just produced the finest example of joinery I have ever seen. We wanted to replace our old front door & frame with an exact copy and to retain the original 1930’s leaded lights. We had these restored by Vincent of Art with glass www.artwithglass.co.uk/ who did a brilliant job and I thoroughly recommend him too.

We found the whole experience dealing with Alex a pleasure, from his initial visit to the final fitting of our new door. Alex is a true artisan and takes real pride in what he does. He’s a thoroughly nice bloke and cares for his customers. He even invited me to his workshop a couple of times to see the stages of production as I was interested to see how it’s done. Over coffee he explained how he carefully selects the timber, which he leaves in the workshop for a couple of weeks to make sure it stays true. This is just one example of the level of attention to detail. The door is then assembled and checked at each stage, resulting in a perfect end result. An unexpected surprise was that he fits draught proofing for a snug fit between the door and frame.

We have noticed a marked difference in how much warmer our hallway is and traffic noise is definitely less noticeable. I never thought I’d describe a front door as beautiful, but freshly painted and fitted with new door furniture and locks, that’s exactly what it is. Thank you Alex!

I would welcome anybody who’s interested to contact me for more information
Crown Joinery - Sash windows
Posted by Leber May 16, 04:24PM

This is a quick recommendation for Alex at Crown Joinery. He recently made and fitted 4 sash windows to replace poor quality upvc units on the front of my flat. The replacements had to be bespoke in order to match the arched sashes which still survive on the neighbouring houses.

Alex can be little unpredictable in his timekeeping, but he's a nice guy, his price was reasonable and the quality of workmanship is excellent. I'm very pleased with the finished windows and would happily recommend him.
