Grey aluminium doors and a Juliette balcony completed this refurbishment project.

Our grey aluminium doors, along with one of our Juliette Balconies, played their part in modernising this home in Clapham Common, South London.

This couple had just purchased this property when they asked us to come round to quote everything. They were looking to change every single window and door in the property, knowing they may need to do it in stages to fit with their budget. With all the other expenses involved in purchasing a property, this is quite common.

As a typical London terraced townhouse, the current single glazed timber sliding sash windows were thermally poor but the biggest problem was their acoustic values, which were very poor. Near a flight path, hearing a plane was an annoyance the couple had to deal with a little too much for their liking. So we suggested either using our triple glazing or our Stadip Silence acoustic glass to really drown out the noise.

For the doors in the Kitchen and the window and doors in the loft, they wanted to go for something a bit more modern. So we suggested double doors using our Smart Visofold 1000 material, which achieves a really great thin sightline and nice slimline barrel hinges. Having seen the popular RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey on the TV show “Grand Designs”, we decided grey aluminium doors and window in this colour would be perfect.

The current wrought iron balcony in the loft was starting to look really dated and more importantly, wasn’t very secure. As we take iPad’s to many of our appointments, with brochures and images on, our chap Dan was able to show examples of Juliette balconies we had previously installed. Our standard Juliette balcony was exactly what the couple was after to complement the grey aluminium doors.

Being a terraced house with no rear access, we also organised the scaffolding which would enable our installers to get up to the loft area to install the Juliette balcony and loft double doors.

Deposits were paid, order forms filled out for everything minus the sliding sash windows. Then, around a week later, everything was surveyed. A couple of days before the planned installation, the scaffolding went up and a couple of days after it was all successfully and seamlessly installed, it came back down again.
