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 existing windows in this detached house in Dorking, Surrey were softwood, they hadn’t rotted (yet!) but they needed painting.
The windows were glazed with very thin double glazed sealed units which had started to mist up.
Our customer wanted warmer, more secure windows with much less maintenance!
We supplied and fitted nine windows with white Liniar A-rated, double glazed, uPVC windows with dummy casements for equal sight lines and large head frame with 4000 trickle vents.
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!
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.
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.
New Low Maintenance Guttering Alternative, Dorking
The customer’s property in Dorking had timber fascias and soffits which were not rotten but needed painting.
Our customer wanted a low maintenance alternative which was in keeping with the style of their property.
We supplied and fitted white uPVC fascia and soffits with black half round guttering.
For fascias soffits Dorking, call Dorking Glass! The customer in Dorking had just bought the property and had started to fully refurbish it.
The existing fascias soffits and cladding were rotten in places and hadn’t been painted in years and the guttering leaked.
The customer wanted to change the look of the property and decided to change the colour of the fascias, soffits and cladding from white to a Rosewood colour low-maintenance uPVC.
We removed and disposed of the existing defective timber and supplied and fitted new Rosewood coloured uPVC fascias, soffits and cladding. We then installed new black uPVC guttering and downpipes.
Included within the price was the required access safety equipment and to dispose of all site debris.
