Pickering Joinery Geelong FAQs
We have a historic home. Can you provide windows and doors that are consistent with the era of our property and will match its design and architecture?
Pickering Joinery is one of Victoria’s leading manufacturers of heritage-style timber windows and doors. We have more than 50 years’ experience and combine that experience with modern technology and equipment to create doors and windows suitable to any era and any style. Our knowledge of Geelong’s historic properties and the heritage windows and doors which suit them is unparalleled. We even have our own brand of tilt and turn windows, known as Pickering European windows.
We have plans for a unique and imposing custom-made front door spanning a much larger space than a traditional entrance door. Can you help us?
At Pickering Joinery we’re limited only by the limits of our clients’ imaginations. If you can think it, there’s every chance we can design and manufacture it. So, yes, if you want a unique and imposing over-size custom-made front door, we’re the people to make it for you.
We’re renovating and not sure what doors and windows would look best in our new-look home. Should we go with french doors, sliding doors, sashless windows – we don’t know! Can you help?
With more than 50 years’ experience and a reputation for industry-leading craftsmanship, Pickering Joinery can advise and guide you on what doors and windows would best suit your plans. If you want to capture views, then stacking sliding doors might be your best answer. If you love a classic look, then custom-made french doors might be ideal. As for windows, sashless might be best because they’re ideal for ventilation, but you might have a preference for double-hung windows. There are also glazing options to consider. We’ll advise you what works best in the space you have, the style of your home and your budget. Our timber joinery skills are renowned, not just in Geelong but throughout the region, and we will ensure that whatever windows or doors we design and manufacture for you, they will fit perfectly and do the job they’re designed to do.
Can we choose different timbers for our custom-made windows and doors?
Pickering Joinery provides custom-made windows and doors in whatever timber takes our clients’ fancy, as long as its suitable for the job. While we primarily use western red cedar or kiln-dried hardwood, we’ll happily discuss whatever timber options you prefer.
Custom-made usually means expensive. Can we afford Pickering Joinery?
Of course you can afford Pickering Joinery! Talk to us and you’ll discover that not only are the custom-made windows and doors manufactured in our Geelong workshop the best quality, our prices are also more than reasonable.
