Double Glazed uPVC back door in Reigate
The customer’s property was in Reigate and their existing back door was a modern GRP composite door but it had been installed out of square so didn’t close or lock properly and was draughty. Our customer wanted an easier to live with and low maintenance solution.
We supplied and installed a new white Liniar uPVC door with multi-point locks operated by chrome lever handles.
The existing windows and doors were stained hardwood. They were glazed with thin double glazed sealed units with rectangular leads. The windows and doors were in a good condition but our customer wanted to have more secure, modern, thermally efficient double glazing on their windows and doors which would also require less long term maintenance.
To reduce the maintenance on the property, we also replaced all of the existing roofline products (fascias, soffits and guttering) to new, modern, low maintenance uPVC.
We supplied 13 windows, 2 bay windows and 2 doors all Rosewood out/white in, Liniar profile, uPVC A-rated and double glazed with rectangular leaded lights.
The locks were shootbolt locks operated by chrome handles.
The Rosewood uPVC fascia boards, white vented soffit boards and black half round deepflow guttering completed the refurbishment.
Our customer had a single glazed wooden door which led from the dining room onto the patio. They were refurbishing their dining room and wanted a modern, secure, warm door with double glazing and to reduce ongoing maintenance. They wanted the door to look as close as possible to the original wooden door.
We supplied and installed a Rosewood out/white inside fully sculptured Liniar profile door with brushed silver coloured handles and surface mounted Georgian Bars.
The existing entrance door was a black/brown stained timber door. The door was single glazed and was draughty, and whilst it wasn’t rotten it had swollen and was difficult to open and close.
Our customer had had carpenters out over previous years to plane bits off but had now decided to replace it with a low maintenance product which would open in all weathers. The property was part of a development so the new door had to match as closely as possible to the original and the other properties.
We supplied and fitted a fully sculptured Liniar black brown out/white inside framing with an A-rated door with Arctic obscured glass double glazing and surface mounted Georgian Bars.
The door featured shiplap uPVC panel in the lower section and a hookbolt locking system operated by a gold coloured handle.
Our customer had a blank wall in their main bedroom and wanted a set of French Doors, opening side windows and a Juliet balcony.
We supplied and installed white uPVC fully sculptured Liniar profile A-rated, double-glazed French Doors and two tilt and turn windows featuring shaped head frames. Both were glazed with clear toughened glass.
Our customer had single glazed timber windows and French doors which suffered from condensation and were draughty and cold.
The windows and French Doors were in their main bedroom and they wanted to replace them so they were warmer in the winter months.
The windows had Georgian Bars which were extremely time consuming to rub down and re-paint and the customer was keen to reduce the amount and cost of maintenance on their odler, period property.
We supplied and installed white Liniar uPVC A-rated double glazed windows and French Doors with chamfered framing and surface mounted Georgian Bars. The French Doors had attractive gold coloured handles.
Our customer wanted a porch installed to enclose their front door area. They wanted to eliminate draughts, increase security and have somewhere dry to keep umbrellas and shoes. A very handy addition to many homes.
The new porch was designed to line through with the existing bay window. This created a neat and visually appealing front aspect to the house.
We supplied and installed a white uPVC Swiftframe profile entrance door with bevelled frame and beading.
The front door had white uPVC decorative panels in the lower sections and clear toughened glass in the upper sections for the extra security our customer desired.
Our customer had this to say:
“We couldn’t have asked for a nicer bunch of guys. They were very polite, informative and skilled! The porch is even better than we expected. Thank you.”
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.
Our customer was having a new kitchen fitted but wanted to change the layout by having French Doors opening directly onto her patio. A common desire to open out your kitchen into your outdoor space and make the most of your garden!
The brickwork was ground out below the existing window and the window was removed. We then installed the new uPVC French Doors, sinking the cill and threshold as low as possible into the floor to reduce the step height. The white Swiftframe double glazed, uPVC French doors had bevelled framing and beading with internal 18mm white Georgian Bars and white handles.
We made good the external render and the customer had booked a plasterer to make good the inside next to the doors.
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!
