Commendations for quality craftsmanship and customer service
Sean Brooks, Mountainbuilders Ltd
I’ve been running my own building business for 25 years always with my nail apron on with every project I do, specialising in top end housing.
Paul Autridge who runs and owns Geraldine Timber products would have to be in my opinion, the neatest and tidiest and most capable Master Joiner I have ever worked with. Paul is organised, very easy to work alongside with on any project, very honest, and exceptionally capable in his trade. Nothing seems impossible for him with his knowledge and can do attitude and Craftsmen Capability in all aspects of the Joinery trade.
Paul is a key part of the success of any of my projects requiring the top skills of a great Joiner.
I point all of my clients towards Paul and his team and have never had any complaints about any of his workmanship, only praise of his finished work. Paul specialises in one-off joinery that requires tradesman who thinks outside of the square to come up with solutions that work, are strong and look great.
I highly recommend Geraldine Timber Products to anybody looking for quality Joiners in any aspect of the Joinery Trade.

We absolutely love our kitchen and dining area. Everyone one who has visited since its completion has commented on how beautiful it looks. Paul is a skilled craftsman, we really appreciated his professionalism, attention to detail and his expertise. Throughout the whole process from the initial design ideas through to the installation, Paul communicated with us regularly, which is key to stress-free renovating. Our experience with Paul and Geraldine Timber Products was very positive and as a consequence, we would not hesitate in using them again if needed or recommending them for any joinery project.
Lynn River, Geraldine
A few years ago we used Paul Autridge to design, build and install a front counter/administration desk space and total wall product display unit at Lynn River. We gave Paul some initial ideas and he had the ability to come back to us with more additional features that we incorporated, which have all worked out very well. Paul did a great job. When the units arrived they all fitted perfectly, and that wasn’t easy considering the confined space used. The front counter is in constant use day in and day out and over the years it has stood the test of time. All the units look as good today as it did when first installed.
Paul made new doors and windows, including sash windows, repaired old doors and windows for reuse and built and installed our new kitchen and laundry/pantry. Everything he did was right the first time and was made and fitted perfectly. He was happy to propose design ideas and draw up sketches for discussion. He worked very well with the builder to work out solutions to a few difficult issues. He is reliable, efficient and straight forward to work with, turning up when promised and going the extra mile to get the job completed on time.
I thoroughly recommend him.
Paul has worked on many projects for us over the years from the beautifully crafted window and door joinery to bookcases, wardrobes, a laundry and a kitchen. His creative ideas and exceptional attention to detail and quality, has always delivered a result we are proud of. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul Autridge and his team at Geraldine Timber Products if you want high quality, attention to detail, personalised service and satisfaction.

When we chose Sean Brooks as the builder for our Lake Tekapo house we spoke to a very satisfied client of his who said how impressed he was with the very high-quality joinery work of Paul Autridge of Geraldine Timber Products. That also became our experience. During our build, Paul was a pleasure to deal with. He assisted with the design in consultation with our Architect, we love the recommendations he made and the quality of the work is just superb. Highlights for us are the built-in bunks and ladders in the children’s rooms, also the kitchen and living room joinery.
Paul was always easy to contact, was prompt and efficient and friendly and we highly recommend Geraldine Timber Products. Paul is a craftsman. We look forward to using his services again for our outdoor living area.
