Welcome to the ALLKIND Joinery & Glass FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page. We thought you might benefit from reading through answers to some questions that we’re often asked by our clients! If you would like to discuss your project in further detail, please contact our experienced team here.
Can I have obscured glazing in my windows/doors?
Yes. ALLKIND uses, and can source, most types of obscured glass. Please note: Not all obscured glass is available as toughened glass.
Can I have my doors/windows pre-primed/sealed?
Yes. We can supply your timber doors/windows as either raw finished or pre-primed/sealed.
What is the typical project turnaround time?

What types of timber do you use?
We can source most types of timber that are available throughout Australia. Our premium timbers that we use most commonly are New Guinea Rosewood, Surian Cedar and Merbau. We can also source Silky Oak, Spotted Gum and Western Red Cedar.
I am not sure what types of doors and windows I want, can you advise?
Absolutely, our experienced staff can help advise on what joinery to use if you are unsure. We can go through your drawings and show you through our showroom to guide you through some of the different aspects that may help in deciding the right applications for your project.
Do you repair doors and windows?
Yes. We can do repairs on timber doors and windows. However, there may be times where it may be more cost effective to replace the door or window, as the time and cost of labor may exceed that of which to make a new one.
Can I have insect or security screens installed with my doors/windows?
Yes, ALLKIND can supply premium quality insect or security screens for your doors or windows. We are also proud to be a leading supplier of Centor sliding screens and blinds. Please contact our experienced staff for a quote on adding any of these options to your timber joinery.
What’s the best way to get a quote for my project?
The best way to get quote for your project is to email, call or visit our showroom to consult with one of our experienced joinery estimators. Our estimators can get started on your free quote when simply provided with approximate opening sizes, photos of existing spaces and drawings/plans for you project if you have them. Please do not forget to include your contact details. If you’re unsure of how take measurements yourself, it’s not a problem – please call us to chat with an experienced estimator, who can guide you through the process. Alternatively, we can offer obligation free site visits to measure and quote for you (Brisbane metropolitan area only).
