About us

A Legacy of Craftsmanship and Commitment

Our Founding Story:
In the bustling year of 1959, amidst the inception of the M1 and the introduction of direct dial telephones in the UK, Ray Lafford embarked on a journey to bring quality home improvements to our local community. Collaborating with a partner, Mr. Leavey, the foundation of Lafford and Leavey was laid. From its modest beginnings in a shed in Bradfield, our business was born out of a passion for supplying and fitting windows, doors, staircases, and bespoke joinery.

Generational Leadership:
Today, we proudly carry forward the legacy established by Ray Lafford, with his son Paul Lafford at the helm. Paul, who started as the ‘Tea Boy’ in 1979, brings not only a wealth of experience but a deep-rooted commitment to the values that have defined our business for over six decades.

Our Journey:
From that humble shed in Bradfield to our present home in Theale, our journey has been one of continuous growth and adaptation. Over 30 years in our current location, our commitment to excellence has not wavered. We’ve witnessed the ever-changing landscape of home improvement trends and technologies, and throughout it all, our dedication to providing top-notch service and high-quality products has remained steadfast.
