Q. Can you match existing doors or panels?

This can be hit and miss. We can very often make a near match that keeps to a reasonable budget - an exact match can become very expensive. The most difficult doors to match are Solid wood doors, these are usually oak and are constructed with different machines and cutters to us. The other problem is colour matching. We can send you free vinyl samples to check before ordering.

I'm afraid not, your best bet is a local joinery shop. Colour matching can be very difficult if a good match is required and may require a skilled polisher or sprayer.
