Edwardian Britain was a short lived period and was very similar in style to the Victorian period. The stained glass colours used changed from the well know Victorian Red, to Edwardian Blue. In terms of door design, the heavy mouldings and technical detail were dropped in favour of lighter, less detailed designs. This period saw a rise in the popularity of multiple glazed panels. Many towns and cities had front doors featuring three or more panes of stained glass. This therefore allowed a lot more light to reach inside the home.

You can purchase these doors fully bespoke directly through our website, or over email/phone. You can also visit our shop in Stockport, where we have many beautiful examples available for viewing.

Shrinkage is common in new timber doors.

All new solid timber doors including Engineered doors have an element of moisture normally around 12%.

In time this may reduce to about % and then stabilize,if this drying out process happens to quickly i.e when south facing and without protection i.e

When  no porch or overhang , dark colours i.e black can be problematic.

When fitted to a heated environment and  also dependant on local conditions.

Radiators in hallways should be turned off for the first few months and should not be within 2 metres of the door. Mouldings panels and joints  can shrink slightly causing gaps .

This  would not be considered a fault with the construction of the door or paint finish, but a natural occurrence under certain conditions of new solid timber doors.

The gaps around the moulding would be best filled with a flexible mastic filler

and the gaps on the joints filled with 2 part filler then repainted
