Testimonials

Watkinson Joinery have made a number of quality pieces of furniture including fitted cupboards, staircases and an amazing wine room. The workmanship is of an extremely high standard and the team are always polite and respectful when working in your home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian to anyone.Phil & Alex Brierley, York
Having approached Ian for some ideas to make some furniture to fit a specific space, we were very happy with the results. His ideas were creative and practical, the price was realistic and he kept us fully informed throughout the process, keeping to the timeline we had agreed. We would not hesitate to use him again.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Watkinson Joinery Ltd. Ian and his team worked really hard to deliver everything we wanted from a new kitchen and we are truly delighted with the results.

The kitchen was carefully and thoughtfully planned to meet our requirements and ideas. Ian was patient, accommodating and always available to discuss and resolve any issues.

It was great to be able to view the kitchen in the workshop before it was installed and the actual installation was done on time and very efficiently.

Being without a kitchen is never easy, and we appreciated all the efforts to make it as painless as possible. Work happened when we expected it to and we were left with a tidy house each night.

Watkinson Joinery Ltd are professional, courteous and did everything absolutely properly and to a high level of workmanship. We couldn’t have asked for more!Jenny and Robin Norton, Harrogate

Dear Ian

Thank you for your recent letter which was of great interest. We are both so pleased that your business has progressed to such a level that you are now able to contemplate the expansions detailed in your communication.

It is now five years since you replaced our front door with a purpose made oak door and surround. This has been of the highest quality and has proved to be a great improvement both functionally and visually. The work you undertook was carried out with the minimum of disruption and to a very high standard. We would certainly recommend you to customers seeking specialist joinery or custom built fittings.

We wish you well for the future.

Yours sincerelyMr & Mrs Shearman

Dear Ian
We have just had different sets of guests staying over the last two weekends and without exception they commented on the quality of your workmanship wishing they could get hold of someone with your ability. Sadly for you they live in deepest Essex and Pembrokeshire!
Your work is of exceptional quality but having lived with it for some time it becomes “normal” so their comments serve to remind us of how appreciative we are of your professional attitude and artisanship.
With kindest regardsGraham and Wendy
