The existing front door was timber but was both draughty and insecure. Following a recent refurbishment of the front of the property, our customer wanted a new, warm, low-maintenance and secure front door.
We installed a new composite Nottingham style Golden Oak in and out composite door with Quad Red patterned glass and gold colour door furniture.
The customer wanted an additional porch frame installed at the front of their period property in Cobham in Surrey, to create a practical porch area at the entrance area.
The porch had to be in keeping with the older property so we fitted 90mm thick European solid Oak frames with a pencil edge moulding.
The frame was fitted with clear toughened, energy-saving glass with attractive period style, diamond leaded lights.
This rental property in Weybridge, Surrey had single glazed windows which were in a very poor condition. Some had been painted shut, some rotten, but all condensated really badly.
The tenant had complained about the existing windows and the landlord wanted to invest back into his rental property.
We fitted one composite front door, one pair uPVC French Doors and five uPVC windows.
The uPVC windows fitted were energy efficient, A-rated double glazed units with fully sculptured frames, white handles, and trickle ventilation to provide better ventilation in the property.
Our customer had a front porch with a timber, single glazed entrance door. The design meant a large glass area which was very cold in winter and the existing door frame had started to rot.
The customer wanted a low maintenance alternative to match as close as possible to the original door design.
We supplied and installed one door with two side panels – white uPVC window framing and door outer frame.
Red uPVC door leaf and Rosewood uPVC door cill. We added trickle vents to give background ventilation and brushed silver door furniture.
The existing front door at this property was single glazed and was draughty, cold and was not very secure.
The property was a turn of the century and the brick opening was very small. The customer wanted something similar to the original door which was painted blue.
Unfortunately, GRP fibreglass front doors are not available in such small door widths so a coloured woodgrain uPVC door was the only option.
We supplied and installed a blue woodgrain uPVC front door with chrome handles and a white uPVC outer frame.
The existing door was a modern GRP composite door installed about 11 years ago. The door was installed badly to start with and our customers had always had problems with it.
The locking mechanism had broken and needed replacing so the customer decided to put the money towards a new, more secure and easy to maintain, front door.
The end of terrace Victorian property was fitted with a black GRP composite front door with fixed top light glazed with sandblasted (satin) glass. The fixtures of ponytail knocker, letterbox the number 1 and handle are all in a chrome finish.
The customer’s comments:
“We are very pleased with our new front door.”
Our customer who lives in Reigate, Surrey had been granted planning permission to convert her garage into an office for her accountancy business.
She wanted high quality, thermally efficient, secure windows and doors with minimal maintenance.
It was also specified to make sure the front door opened outwards to maximise the useable internal floor space in her new office.
We supplied three white, Liniar profile, A-rated, double glazed, uPVC windows with chamfered framing and beading and a brown darkwood GRP composite front door, with white uPVC outer frame glazed with clear toughened glass.
The outer frame glazing helped to maximise light in the office and the toughened glass gave extra peace of mind and security.
The customer was extremely pleased with the finished result:
“I would like to say a big thank you to the boys. They were quick, efficient, professional, tidy and clean. They have done a wonderful job.
The finishing of the door and the windows look really good.
Even the 12 bricks are matching to the existing brick work which makes another difference.
Thank you for a fantastic job done! I am very, very pleased.”
The existing uPVC door at a property in Westcott, Surrey was over 15 years old and had been damaged in places.
The locking mechanism had broken and we were unable to source a replacement.
We supplied and fitted a white Liniar uPVC front door in white with bevelled framing and beading.
The letterbox and pad/lever handle were both in chrome, and the door had Mayflower obscured toughened glass. It also has a sidelight with opening fanlight and a 2000 trickle vent.
The customer in Brockham, Surrey had an old timber entrance porch which was single glazed and unfortunately, it had started to rot. It also leaked in places. Not an ideal situation.
We supplied and fitted new white uPVC, double glazed windows, a uPVC door and roof frames with black uPVC trims to imitate the original black painted timber posts.
It can put some customers off if they have a character or period property when considering using uPVC, as they feel it will spoil the look of their property.
But there are so many uPVC window and door options we can recommend, in terms of glass, window and door furniture and finishing touches – that can look as if they are the original hardwood alternatives but without the heat loss and high maintenance!
This customer had an old uPVC door which had never worked properly.
The frame had been installed out of square so closing and locking the back door had always been difficult and it was very draughty.
Our customer wanted a like-for-like replacement in terms of design but with a high specification and installed properly.
We supplied and installed a white Liniar profile uPVC door with bevelled beading and framing.
The door has 18mm internal Georgian bars with clear glass, a multi-point hook locking system operated by a white handle.
We also installed a black cabin hook to enable the customer to keep their new back door open safely and securely.
