Deepening rebate for double glazing?

I want to replace single glazed panes with double glazed units but need a deeper rebate in the timber frame. I don't want to chisel it (takes too long and don't think I'd do a good enough job) so is getting a carpenter(?) to router the inner frame the way to go? What kind of tradesman would do this?

You could get the rebate routed but if the single glazed unit has had a bead depending on the size of the bead usually a 20mm double glazed unit can be installed with a smaller bead. I have just recently done a job on a bay window and changed all the glass to double glazing using this method !!
