Being just a stone throw away from our head office in Sittingbourne, the DWL team were more than happy to pay a visit to a local Kent property situated in the beautiful old town of central Canterbury with the hope of helping a homeowner renovate their house and transform it into a commercial holiday let. After talking through the options extensively with the customer we agreed that windows and doors from the Smart Sensations were the perfect choice. This included a new set of Alitherm Plus double doors.
When we arrived at the property, it was nice to discover that it was mainly constructed using bespoke brickwork, being very reminiscent of the slightly more rural architectural style evoked by a lot of houses in the area. What wasn’t so nice however was this Canterbury home’s unsightly white uPVC windows which stuck out like a sore thumb. These dilapidated windows were a real disservice to the attractive scenery inside – needless to say, we got to work immediately.
After removing the property’s existing uPVC window and door frames, we took extra special care when replacing them with a suite of Smart Sensations aluminium products. The living space would now be able to enjoy the benefits of a series of Alitherm 300 windows, Alitherm plus double doors, as well as a set of Visoglide plus sliding doors also from Smart.
Each of the three products were supplied powder coated in a bold and flexible Antique Grey which we felt would better help define and sophisticate the future commercial holiday let. Exceedingly slim sightlines ensured visitors would be able to enjoy glorious outside views in order to take in the sights around them, fully giving themselves over to the Canterbury experience when enjoying the area’s historic charm.
Our mission was to enhance and never disrupt the property’s existing aesthetic appeal, all while introducing a whole host of practical benefits too such as increased thermal performance and energy efficiency. Smart Sensation products, with their sturdy feel and multi-chambered internal frames never fail to impress with low u-values and improved heat retention which keeps homes warmer for longer.
The property will now also be much more environmentally friendly thanks to sustainable manufacturing processes and wholly recyclable Smart aluminium, but it’s hoped that the customer’s guest won’t feel the need to rely on central heating, resulting in reduced energy bills. Everybody will be happy!
Since our visit, the next time the customer opens his Alitherm plus double doors to his gorgeous Canterbury property, he can do so knowing that he is stepping into a revitalised and much more welcoming holiday space that he can feel confident in letting out to tourists and visitors.
