Originally established in 1984 GBS has carved its niche in the joinery manufacturing industry, providing quality products and outstanding service to all our clients.
Based in Stockport Cheshire we are happy to meet new customers and travel throughout neighbouring counties, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, to offer supply and installation, outside this area we can supply only.
From the modest Victorian terrace, a country farmhouse or a Georgian Rectory, conservation areas, listed buildings and National Parks, we have the experience to understand customers and their homes.
All orders are strictly programmed from start to finish, carried out by our dedicated and highly skilled team who constantly strive to understand customers requirements and to meet their expectations.
Replacement, rennovation or new build
Whether replacement, replication or projects such as new builds and renovation we recognise the importance of maintaining the original look of period properties and the importance of retaining the character and historic style without aesthetic compromise. We are always delighted to be involved and offer our experience in projects, providing detailed drawings from our own library, liasing with architects and local authority planning and conservation officers.
Without compromise we use only the very best timbers available, Softwoods such as Swedish Redwood and Douglas Fir / Columbian Pine. Hardwoods, Mahogany (Sapele), Idigbo, Oak and in recent times Accoya. Coupled with highly efficient Planitherm double glazing, argon filled, we provide high performance windows that exceeds the standard set out in current building regulations.
Finished with a low maintenance factory applied paint system in vast range of colour choice that further enhances the overall product.
Experienced and skilled
Installed by our own experienced and skilled fitting team that understand they are working in your home, not on a building site.
We are always pleased to freely provide the best possible information and advice.
