Five Timber Craft is owned and operated by Juan Portales who is originally from Chile but who now calls New Zealand home.

Juan has previously owned a building recycling business and worked for a major Wellington glass and glazing company. He is experienced in doors, windows, glazing and retrofit double-glazing. He has a high standard of work including work completed at Government house, other Wellington heritage buildings and glass repairs in the Wellington CBD following the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake.

When new windows or doors are required or if sashes need to be replaced during the double-glazing process Juan works with a local joiner who has more then 30 years of experience.
