Making the right choice of materials for your lifestyle and your home is important. Jerry will chat with you about how you intend to use your decked area and the look you want to achieve.

He will also be able to advise on whether you will need a building licence and/or planning permission.

Skirting boards supplied and fitted

Skirting boards have many purposes. They finish the look of a room, whatever the style of your home. But they also protect the bottom of your walls from getting scuffed and damaged by many things such as small children and their toys, pets, skateboards and vacuum cleaners just to name a few. They also cover up the gap which sometimes occurs between timber floors and masonry walls.

Jerry can supply and fit a style of skirting board to suit any home including:

  • Colonial
  • Heritage
  • Victorian
  • Rounded
  • Bevelled
  • Modern

Full door installation service

Installing a door can be a tricky job – it might look easy, but if you don’t get it exactly right, you might have to throw away the door and start again. Jerry offers a full door installation service so you can be sure the job will be done quickly and easily and you won’t have to lift a finger.

Timber window and door maintenance

There’s nothing worse than trying to force a window open or having to slam a door just to get it shut. When windows and doors aren’t working properly they have to be repaired, not just for your own peace of mind, but for security reasons as well. Well-fitting windows and doors much more secure than broken, ill-fitting ones.

Jerry has the experience and expertise to repair or replace your old and broken timber windows and doors.
