Windows & Doors
The original design of the traditional sash and casement window is over 100 years old, and can benefit hugely from a few upgrades to bring it up to modern standards. Trust Bartrams joinery to use traditional joinery skills combined with modern techniques to renovate old joinery, or create new bespoke pieces.
Traditional Box Sliding Sash
Double hung sliding sash window. Counter weight pulleys and weights. Used mainly in listed buildings where single glazing is enforced. Can be double- glazed by introducing lead weights.
Spiral Sliding Sash
Modern version of the double hung sliding sash window, using tensioned springs in lieu of pulleys and weights.
Super-tilt Sliding Sash
Variation of the spiral sliding sash, allowing each sash to tilt inwards to enable easy cleaning from inside.
Typical, modern window in which outward opening casement extends around the frame. Easily cleaned from inside.
Traditional design in which outward casement fits flush with the frame. Easily cleaned from inside.
This window allows the casement to be fully reversed, thereby allowing easy cleaning from inside. Euro-profile Tilt and Turn Inward opening window, commonly used throughout Europe.
As each door is a bespoke product, we can create any door style needed to suit your home or project. Door styles can be incorporated as a single door, double or French door sets, stable doors, sliding folding doors and patio door sets – all of which can be incorporated into almost any size opening. Our sliding-folding door sets are stylish and durable and are perfect for conservatories, patios and large open-plan areas as well as smaller rooms to give the illusion of a larger space. The sliding-folding door system is designed with endurance in mind and can be hung either top or bottom.
Bespoke Interiors & Furniture
We excel at creating bespoke interiors and furniture from any number of materials, to a high specification. We take pride in our work and our passion is matched by dedication and attention to detail. Each member of staff approaches a project with the same care, taking the raw material and turning it into a unique piece of furniture.
We marry traditional handcrafting techniques with state-of-the-art technology. Clients may also wish to visit our premises to view their furniture at any stage of the manufacturing process; a personal and approachable provision that previous clients have been delighted with.
Conservatories & Orangeries
All of our Conservatories can be manufactured in hardwood or softwood and are individually designed. If you are looking for a space to relax and enjoy the natural light then we can create a special hardwood conservatory for you. Each hardwood conservatory is individually designed to meet your desires and blend in with the style and shape of your home.
One of our most popular and classic glazed extensions, the lean-to conservatory is an ideal solution for creating a beautiful sun room to fit easily on to your house. Perfect for linking two sections of the host building, or merely as a bright and airy garden room.
An elegant and spacious structure, the octagonal conservatory is evocative of the typical glass house styles of the Victorian era. Often used as a follow on from sitting rooms, dining rooms and kitchens, the Octagonal is a fitting design for houses of all sizes, shapes and ages.
A hipped conservatory is highly versatile in so much as it can often be designed to fit into the apex of houses, thereby using up space that might usually be redundant. Its square sides and broad hipped roof maximise the opportunity for additional living space.
The straightforward lines of a gable fronted conservatories will complement all styles of buildings. It can serve as a link between two buildings, or be sited to the front, rear or side of the house. Its rectangular shape allows for easy furnishing as a sitting room, dining room or traditional garden room.
Hardwood orangeries can match the character of some properties more suitably than a conservatory with its larger area of glass. This is particularly important with a south-facing extension that will heat up rapidly on sunny summer days. The flat roof of an orangery pierced with one or more roof lanterns, in a matching hardwood finish, will protect the interior from the heat of an overhead sun, and as heat rises, the roof lanterns will provide much needed ventilation while still allowing the area beneath to be bathed in natural light.
Bar & Shop Fitting
We can exclusively design and produce exceptionally high quality shop/bar/restaurant fittings, such as bespoke bars, counters and shop fronts, with all designs completely tailored to the customers’ requirements; we can work with our clients from conception to completion.

The materials our craftsmen work with include timber, lime mortars, render and plaster, brick and stone.
To maintain an environmentally acceptable harmony between each building and its surroundings, all products are acquired from renewable sources where possible. Coupled with our ability to accurately and confidently assess the requirements of each project, we remain dedicated to conserving the architectural details of our built heritage for future generations.
We have carried out several projects for The National Trust, English Heritage, local councils, church councils and private clients.

From the onset you inspired confidence and sound knowledge, offering advice and guidance as required from the initial drawings to the final building. I do realise that we encountered difficulties with the Planning department, but this was beyond your control. However my wife and I were very grateful in the way you took control of the situation and resolved the issues on our behalf.
Visitors to our home have always positively commented on the high quality and standard of work. We too are extremely delighted and are impressed with the attention to detail. I would also like to say that the workmen were polite, courteous and diligent in their work and obviously had a pride in the finished work. It was also great to see a tidy site and consideration show to our neighbours.
Once again many thanks for an excellent job."
