Is when Todi, the founder of Todi & Boys, was born in a small mountain town in The Balkans known for its spring water river.
Surrounded by forests, wood played a big part in Todi’s life when he was growing up. He loved working with the local craftsman and graduated top of his class at carpentry college!
With dreams of learning more about his craft, Todi risked it all by emigrating to London – the epicentre of fine joinery – with his wife, two boys and just £2.94 left in his pocket.
He spent long hours working hard to learn British-style joinery from two Irish joiners, John and Neil, in Hammersmith.
After mastering the construction of traditional British woodworking, Todi took the plunge by starting his own workshop. His mission was simple – create the highest quality windows and doors. So, in a small arch in Putney Bridge Road, with the District Line trains rumbling up overhead, Todi worked for local Putney residents and quickly established a reputation for providing quality joinery.
By listening to his customers, Todi refined his products and service. The business grew quickly and a few years later, he had clients all over South West London and expanded from one arch to four.
With 18 employees crammed into just four arches, Todi decided to move to our current workshop in Chessington.
More than 40 years later, Todi continues to live out his passion – woodworking – alongside his three sons and a team of more than 30 employees. He can still be found covered in sawdust and paint in the workshop and makes regular visits to his installation teams so that he can ask his clients that all-important question – ‘What do you think?’

Todi and boys installed two double glazed sash windows in our Victorian terraced house. Extremely happy with both the quality of the windows themselves, the professionalism and general attitude of the fitting team. Service has been fantastic and would definitely use them again.

Excellent service, product and support from the get go from the full team (recommend visiting their facilities to meet the team and see their workshop and current projects before committing). Have already recommended to friends and will be using for our other windows.
C Hawkins, Kensington
Todi & Boys recently replaced two of our sash windows. The quality of the product is excellent, installation was quick & efficient, and the customer service support was friendly, efficient and exceeded our expectations. A particular call-out to Ada and Shab who were very helpful throughout.
S Moore, Putney
Todi and Boys were a pleasure to deal with and were both friendly and professional from start to finish. The new sash window we had installed was fitted incredibly carefully. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering replacing existing sash windows.
