Covid-19 Update 23rd February 2021
Just a brief update that we hope finds you all safe and well.
Following the announcement yesterday by the prime Minister outlining how the current lockdown measures will begin to ease, and that the infection rates are coming down. We now believe that we will be able to resume our business activities by the end of March.
We have begun our re-start plan by devising a COVID-19 safe working risk assessment, the details of this will follow in a further email that will also contain a revised installation date for your order. Be assured that our number one priority remains the safety of our customers and staff at all times.
Should you wish to continue to defer your installation until you are ready then that is absolutely fine, just let us know by replying to this email.
In the meantime, we thank you all for your patience, understanding and continued support during these extremely challenging times, and we look forward to carrying out the installation of your order soon.
Please make sure you add our email address to your safe sender list so that you do not miss our further updates.

Covid-19 Update 11th January 2021
Due to the government restrictions, we have taken the difficult decision and as a duty of care to both customers and staff to suspend all our business activities including installations and will not be undertaking any new enquiries until further notice. We will monitor our email should you need to contact us regarding an existing order.
Covid-19 Update 5th January 2021
Following the devastating news announced by the prime minister yesterday, we have sadly had to suspend all our installations and surveys with immediate effect whilst we try to obtain more information and clarification around working in people’s homes.
Our Health and Safety advisers are looking to see if there are any significant changes to this lockdown from that of the previous ones where we have been forced to close, and a further update will be released as soon as we have that clarification.
The number one priority as always must be the safety of our customers, staff, and partners at all times, we believe that at this stage, and although extremely difficult for all concerned, this is the right action to take.
The current information is as with the previous lockdowns, this allows the provision for certain tradespeople to work in other people’s homes to carry out essential work. As interior door replacement is enhancement, this activity would not constitute essential work.
Our industry sector falls under the banner of Retail/Enhancement and is therefore nonessential and obliged to close under the latest restrictions.
May we just take a moment to firstly thank all our customers for there continued support and kind messages throughout these difficult and challenging times and to assure you that we will do everything we can to keep the disruption and delays down as much as we possibly can.
Should you have any questions regarding your order or this update, please reply to this email quoting your order number.
In the meantime, we hope that you and your families stay safe and well and look forward to seeing you soon.

Covid-19 Business Update 16th November 2020
To all our valued customers
We just wanted to keep you updated with the ongoing restrictions and the impact this is having on the business.
As always, the safety of our customers, staff and suppliers is our priority and we continue to monitor the situation and follow the governments guidelines.
We hope to implement a new risk assessment shortly with a view to resuming our operations as soon as the current lockdown is lifted, subject to any new restrictions that may be put in place.
We therefore will hopefully be sending out revised fitting dates shortly for your attention. Please look out for this email and reply to us as soon as you can so that we can secure the date offered.
In addition to the impact of the lockdown restrictions, we are experiencing additional delays with some deliveries from our suppliers for both Doors and Ironmongery. As most of these commodities are imported our suppliers have advised us of delays to some of our orders or to parts of orders where some door sizes are delayed. You may have seen on the national news the problems the docks and importers are experiencing now because of the initial lockdown.
We are working closely with our suppliers and their representatives to keep across the situation and will advise any customer that is impacted by a prolonged delay due to any stock issues directly.
Finally, we hope that you and your families are all safe and well and thank you all for your continued support and kind feedback.

We would ask that you discuss with the fitter any concerns or additional procedures that you wish the fitter to follow while in your home.

The fitter will carry all the necessary PPE and cleaning products, use single use disposable floor covering, clean all tools and equipment between jobs, provide their own refreshments and adhere to any additional measures that you may already have in place.
Customers with orders for delivery will be contacted during the next few days to arrange delivery.
