Gowercroft was recommended to Repton School by another local school during an informal chat. We had 3 quite different requirements on the Estate. Firstly, we wanted to improve the ground floor ventilation of a Grade II Listed cottage used to house a member of the school staff by adding 2 new windows to the rear of the property. Our second project was straightforward replacement of a rotten timber sash in a non-listed domestic property and lastly we wanted to replace 6 windows in the top floor of a classroom block to again improve ventilation, as the existing windows were not openable. The challenges were finding replacement windows that matched the existing single glazed timber sash’s, met the conservation and heritage requirements and gave us longevity and the energy performance of double glazed units. From the start Gowercroft were excellent in providing suitable drawings and information to satisfy Listed Building Consent and they introduced us to Pilkington SpaciaTM glazing which ticked several of the boxes. There was quite a long lead time for the glazing but once supplied the installation and manufacture/finish of the new windows was problem free and excellent. The price was competitive. I would definitely consider using or recommending Gowercroft in the future. Barry law, Estates Bursar
In 2011, I undertook a barn conversion in rural Derbyshire. We were looking for a joinery company who could deliver the highly bespoke items required, while also offering the traditional appearance, neat joints and thin glazing bars required for the conservation-area. We chose Gowercroft after looking at a number of options and I was delighted with the outcome. They delivered an excellent quality product to the timeline required, helping us to keep on track with the development. We sold all of the dwellings without difficulty and the quality of the windows and doors had a big impact on the buyers. I have no hesitation in recommending Gowercroft for both the standard of
and the attentive service I received.
Although Southview isn’t in a designated conservation area, we were still committed to building a traditional looking
that would be in keeping with our unspoilt surroundings.
, energy efficiency, low maintenance and craftsmanship were in the forefront of our minds when we chose Gowercroft, who ticked every box, impressing us with the quality of their workmanship throughout.

Key Partner in the Build
Gowercroft production and design teams were a key partner in the build. My aim was to make communication and ease of information to all trades a priority, I saw this as vital to keep the project on cost and on time, and at the same time maintain the quality finish.
I was looking for a local high-end joinery company, capable of delivering modern but traditional looking timber
at competitive prices – Gowercroft provided all of this supported by exceptionally good guarantees
From the start of the project, David Brown of Gowercroft embraced our vision and helped us design a product that met the local planning constraints with all the criteria of aesthetics and performance. Their traditional craftsmanship and use of innovative, modern materials delivered a product that worked. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gowercroft for all types of projects; their assistance with design is invaluable.
I am very pleased with the new windows, which have made a huge difference to the look and feel of the house. The damp smell has now gone, the air feels “healthier” and the house is much warmer and more comfortable.
I found that Gowercroft offered both the slim double-glazing and Accoya timber
that I required for this project and when I contacted them Andy was happy to give me a guided tour of their small factory, still in Wirksworth at the time. He then provided quotes for different materials: softwood, hardwood and Accoya. The work I saw was of a high standard and they were friendly and helpful. It seems to be run like a small family business with customer care being a high priority!
The double-glazed windows were all factory finished and fitted by Gowercroft to the satisfaction of myself, my client at Holbrook Hall and the Conservation Officer at Amber Valley Borough Council.

Their products breathe new light into our property
We spent many difficult months trying to find an appropriate supplier who could deliver a new window which suited the property, before discovering Gowercroft. We couldn't be happier with the end result, their
breathe new light into our property!
We have been using Gowercroft for the past 8 years and have always found them to have a high standard of quality and professionalism, often lacking in British manufacturing companies.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Gowercroft, a company that goes the extra mile and add value to any project.
