So you are looking to buy a timber based product, what are your options ?
1. Contact your local joinery firm:
For this option there are a number of obstacles, firstly are they any good? How do you know? you will need to look for reviews and recommendations. Then you will need contact them and speak the specifier, this has its own challenges as most joineries are busy so contact can be hard. Secondly most joineries only deal with trade, so if they are willing to work with you would need to create a trade account with a credit check. Next you would need to specify the product dimensions. The quantity and of course the timber, all this takes time and effort. Now we are not saying all joineries are like this but it does happen. Then you have to think financially, for any building project you should get at least 3 quotes, so you would need to repeat the process over and over again. You will be surprised at the variations in pricing and you have to judge yourself if all quotes are like for like.
2. Search the web for prices:
A simple search for bespoke joinery or wooden handrail will bring back multiple sites, some looking better than other’s but who do you trust? Also when comparing off the shelf handrail are you comparing like for like? Different materials. Different profiles and unknown delivery cost all form a factor when shopping around online and when investing in a timber product this can be challenging.
