Twitter is a great place for us to share photos of our installation, news, reviews and links to articles which may benefit or be of interest to our customers and within the many online communities in which we find ourselves. Far from being confined to the pigeon hole of staircases, we share stories of being a family-run business, videos, joinery and carpentry articles and advice. It also allows another avenue for us to communicate with our customers and share our views on current events.
