Do you need planning permission for French doors?

In many cases, you won’t need permission to replace French doors. But if you plan to make major alterations like knocking down part of a wall or if your building is listed, you’ll need planning permission and listed building consent.

Typically, permission to replace timber French doors in listed buildings is only given when the replacement closely resembles the existing design. As experts in heritage conservation, we can advise on materials, finishes and glazing options needed for successful listed building planning applications, as well as provide detailed CAD drawings of our bespoke timber doors.

Can timber French doors be made to measure?

Yes, timber French doors can be made to measure. As specialists in replicating period timber windows and doors, our made-to-measure French doors can be tailored to match existing designs, ensuring an authentic look for your home. Our French doors are handmade in our West London workshops and can match existing details such as mouldings, panels, glazing bars and hardware, or we can create an entirely new design to your specifications.

How do I know what size French doors to buy?

At Timbawood we can exactly match the size and shape of your French doors. We can give you a quote based on the height and width of your French doors, with exact measurements taken during a production survey carried out by one of our specialist surveyors prior to manufacture. Many French doors come in standard sizes, however, custom options are available for tailored fits to maximise natural light in your space.
