The Parlour Door showing beautiful colours.

A Parlour Door is a strong addition to any household. They are timeless and add a stunning variety of colour to whichever space they enclose, rarely seen in most modern households. A Parlour Door is a period piece, having been popular during an earlier settler period. It is because of this that the body of any Parlour Door is almost always sourced from Native timbers–Rimu or Kauri, for example. This makes them particularly special. Due to conservation efforts, Native wood such as Rimu and Kauri are no longer commercially milled. Any present day logging of native timbers sources from long dead, swamp contained woodlots. Kauri is among the oldest and largest growing trees in the world and is still extremely workable. Rimu is similarly prized.

We are lucky to stock a considerable number of different Doors. We have Statesmen, Parlour, T & G, Craftman, French, and Ranch Sliders, each further categorised as either interior suited or exterior. The Doors are available to be purchased untouched or they can be modified to suit any possible vision or wanted alteration. This includes frame assembly, glass replacement, extensions, trimming, and lock installation.

The cost of restoration is a small fraction of what can be expected if buying new. This is a strangely little known or unknown fact. The cost of buying restored, even when combined with the cost of applied joinery, pales in comparison with buying new. In addition to the smaller price, there is the added benefit that restored goods are almost always of better quality, The cost of restoration is a small fraction of what can be expected if buying new.
