“I have used Mr. R Downs and his Son for various types of work over the past 10 years. The work ranges from replacement windows, bespoke cupboards to major refurbishments.

I have always found their work to be of the highest quality and competitively priced. I have also recommended them to friends, who have also been delighted with their craftsmanship, tidyness on site and reliability.

There are very few genuine carpenters around these days, who offer such an all round professional service.”

Robert Lodge, Chairman, Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors


I have been using the services of Robert and Greg Downs Specialised Carpentry and Joinery for a number of years, both for personal work and for my business. I have an old property, which has required some skilled repair, and rebuild on doors and sash windows.

Their work has always been of an excellent standard, and I would be happy to recommend their services to anyone who requires a skilled carpenter.

“We have been really pleased with the work Bob and Greg did for us replacing our old windows with double glazed units.

They went to a lot of time and effort to make sure the new units fitted within our existing Edwardian frames and the final outcome has exceeded our expectations, making the house warmer, cutting down noise and saving thousands of pounds compared to replacing all the frames.

They were courteous and helpful throughout the job and we highly recommend them.”

Neil Elliott


“We recently had the door to our period shop front damaged beyond repair. We needed a bespoke replacement fast, to provide security and to facilitate trading. A facsimile door then had to be handmade to a stringent specification. After one or two ‘expert’ opinions we found Robert and Greg Downs via their website and saw the testimonials and thought we would try them.

We have been delighted with their work and reliability. Their attention to the smallest detail and exacting execution will eliminate any hesitation in employing them again. Anyone in any doubt about their workmanship can come and look at our door – no purchase necessary!

Mary Foster, Church House Antiques, Weybridge

 “I felt very lucky to find Greg and Robert, who have done three bits of work for me now. Their craftsmanship is of an excellent standard and they go the extra mile without question. And they are incredibly nice chaps! I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Catherine Sutton, Richmond upon Thames



“Greg and Robert Downs created a bespoke oak entrance door for us.

They are very professional, pleasant and great craftsmen. The new door fits in with the character of the house and is much admired by anyone who calls on us. The quote and delivery processes were very professional and timely. We are definitely going to use their services for more projects around our house.”

Harbir and Anindita Nat, Ashtead, Surrey


“I had the great fortune of being introduced to Greg Downs of Surrey Joinery Services by my sister who had some wardrobes built and fitted by Greg.
I wanted a large shelving unit to house the TV and hold books and other paraphernalia. From the first visit Greg was able to offer expert advice and suggestions on how to achieve the best bespoke unit for our needs. His work is neat and professional and he takes a great interest in the project to ensure the customers needs are met throughout.
The service and craftsmanship he offers really is second to none and I won’t hesitate to contact Greg again for future projects”

Mrs Fuller, Byfleet, Surrey



“We hired Greg to create coat and shoe storage in the dead space under our stairs and to finish building some units in our utility room. We were most impressed with the work and competitive price.


Having had previous bad experiences with builders and carpenters we know first-hand what good quality of work and good customer service is and Greg has it! Greg provided daily progress updates and stuck to the agreed specification. When there were options to choose, Greg was very clear about our choices and the additional cost if we desired to upgrade.


We will definitely be using Greg again for additional work on our house.”
