Invest in the future of your home – restore, repair and rebuild

As residents of Devonport, we are all acutely aware of our unique heritage surroundings and the need to protect and restore our beautiful homes and buildings.

Jon and Stella fit in perfectly. Their business ethos is to restore, repair and rebuild rather than replace original timber windows and doors. It’s a heart-warming, ecologically sound message that they are 100 per cent committed to. Their worst nightmare is to see beautiful original timber removed and discarded when it could have been brought back to life in all its traditional glory, but with modern functionality and benefits.

Retrofitting double glazing into original window timber frames to a high standard is just one example of Devon Timber Windows’ expertise. Ask Jon about Thermawood retrofit: He’s a self-confessed expert who firmly believes this system gives the best solution in the market for both thermal and acoustic insulation in traditional Devonport homes. The craftsmanship of Jon’s work is readily apparent in the timber doors and frames he has revived. His approach is to repair joinery as a cost-effective and low- impact way to improve his clients’ everyday lives. Whether it is windows, frames, doors or any other timber joinery, Jon takes pride in his care and attention to detail in order to provide the best service he can.

As Alex, a happy Mozeley Ave customer puts it, “Stella and Jon were very easy to deal with, provided us with balanced views

on the various glazing options and made the replacement process as smooth as it could be. We got the insulation outcome we were looking for and it was delivered cost- effectively and with relatively low disruption. This is why we have used them multiple times”

Jon and Stella are keen to talk to you about how they can make a lasting difference in your home and prove their craftsmanship and expertise is a cut above the rest.

“Our 100-year-old property had an old shopfront window with a complicated moulding that was very exposed to the elements and had rotted away. Jon was able to restore the window frame, keeping the integrity of the original structure, crafting a repair that was seamless and non-intrusive to the fabric of the building.
I recommend his work without hesitation and feel very fortunate to have had such an experienced craftsperson to repair the frame. Their all-round service was very professional and communicated to the highest level.”

— Nicki, Devonport

“We had heard good things about Devon Timber Windows and when I got in touch I was very impressed with how quickly they came to see how they could help. We needed a couple of our timber windows repaired and replaced and Jon and Stella were able to clearly explain the process and what would be the best and most cost-effective solution for our house. We were delighted with how professional they and their apprentice Ashley were. The work was done efficiently and with minimal disruption despite the added difficulty of a Covid lockdown. I would heartily recommend their service and their expertise, and look forward to working with them again in the future.”

— David, Belmont
