RetroWood was started in 2016 after Mike and Catherine moved back to Dunedin. Having working for other glazing and joinery companies, they decided to start up their own business and found that there was a lot of work in Dunedin. The business has grown steadily over the past five years and in that time they have developed a number of new products that provide better solutions. These new products range from new glazing systems through to draught stops that have been rolled out around the rest of the country. These products are central to RetroWood's ongoing success by delivering better value for money, with better performance, for less cost. Mike and Catherine have set up their product company called EVS Window Technology Ltd that designs various PVC profiles and gets them manufactured into their range of unique window products.
This property was recently upgraded from single glazing to clip on panels that provided a triple glazing results. This project shows how well the EVS system has retained the properties original character while proving excellent performance at a very competitive price.
