Our aluminium black patio doors and window transformed this South East London home.

If you’re looking to modernise your home, you can do a lot worse than aluminium black patio doors.

These customers came across us through searching online for aluminium windows and doors. As always, they were presented with many options. A good way to distinguish between companies on Google searches is by using Twitter, Google Plus, Checkatrade and sites like These tools help consumers choose the most reputable companies to get a quote from. After all, the glazing industry, like every other industry, has its rotten apples.

Like many others, these homeowners wanted to modernise the rear of the property and the existing windows and doors not only looked a bit old fashioned, but they did not operate properly either. They also allowed air and water leakage through.

The customers were keen to change up the existing doors and window in two respects. Firstly, a change of colour, losing the white in favour of a more modern black. Secondly, changing from uPVC to aluminium gave the items a more sturdy and reliable feel. The existing uPVC doors and window had warped over the years and the couple were keen not to repeat it.

The couple started liaising with James, who was able to give them a price by email after they provided him with sizes. After the quote came through, the couple arrange a visit to our Kent showroom to view the products in person.

The Smart Visoglide Plus black patio doors with 35mm slim mullion we have installed at our showroom really secured the deal. They were also thrilled with the idea of having the window as one opening pane, not split into two as they had before. Below is a section detail showing the 35mm mullion interlock. Compared to the standard 83mm mullion, it’s easy to see why the new 35mm mullion really is an attractive proposition for homeowners.

Everything got tied up and ordered at the showroom. We surveyed the site around a week later and around 6 weeks after that we attended site to install everything.

As the before and after photos below show, the customers got what they wanted; quality aluminium products and installation at a sensible price!
