NHBC ‘Experts in Direct Glazing’, Sussex Hardwood provides specialist knowledge combined with professional expertise in traditional joinery and carpentry which are essential for the successful installation of glazing into timber frames.  We are also 1 of the only 2 companies who guarantee all work for 10 years from project completion.

Having worked as a team for many years, both here and abroad, we honed our professional design, construction, and project management skills delivering one-off exhibition designs for the Super Yacht and Aviation industries initially before establishing Sussex Hardwood in 2009.  A family-run business based in Chichester, West Sussex, we continue to grow and deliver high-quality carpentry and direct glazing throughout the UK.

As a unique and flexible team, we actively embrace new challenges and problem-solving for direct glazing in timber frame builds, renovations and repairs.  By demonstrating many years’ in navigating planning issues we are here to help smooth the path for restoration and development issues.  This extra support can be essential when improving listed buildings, properties in conservation areas, and heritage homes.
