How quickly can timber windows and doors be manufactured?

The typical lead time for bespoke timber windows and doors is 10 to 14 weeks, but this can vary depending on your supplier and how busy they are. If you have an urgent need, however, an Express service has been launched by Salisbury Joinery, which offers the manufacture of windows and doors in only 3 weeks from the sign-off of technical drawings. In this blog we explore the benefits of an express service and when you might choose to use it.
