No pane, no gain! Bates Joinery Ltd

Autumn is the perfect season to ensure you’ve got your condensation under control, and if that means new windows – it’s important to choose a joiner who can preserve the look of your home while ensuring drafts and moisture are kept out. Bates Joinery follows the highest possible standard in New Zealand when it comes to manufacturing windows.


Owner Mark Allworthy has run the business since 2008, and says his team is well known for their kitchen work, timber stairs and shop fit outs – but specialise in manufacturing windows and timber doors, too.

“A lot of people in Christchurch have old character villas with timber frame windows,” he says. “If they are doing renovations, we can ensure the frames protect from moisture and drafts while retaining the original character of the home.”

In new builds, Mark and his team follow Master Joiner New Zealand’s highest protocol of window manfacture, JMF4211, which in some instances can be the difference between the home passing its council building inspection.

The protocol is only available for members of the industry association, which holds members to the high standards of overall skill and professionalism. Learn more about JMF4211 and Master Joiners at
