We have a fantastic working relationship with this commercial customer. We have worked with them for many years and will continue to do so. We are their go to company for all windows, doors, conservatories and Loggias. In fact, a handful of the other installations on our projects page feature installations we have carried out for them.
As with all of the other installations we have carried out for them, the initial drawings arrived with us with designs and specifications quite up in the air. So, we had to look at the spec of the rest of the property and the kind of asking price the properties were going to go for to ascertain the right product for them. Our customer was quite clear that they did not want timber. The high cost and maintenance issues that can sometimes accompany timber has put them off it. We also had to consider the rest of the design of the properties. With oak coloured beams throughout the properties, it was important to create a traditional look and feel.
Taking all of this into consideration, we suggested our woodgrain uPVC windows and our English Door Company double front entrance doors with aluminium bifolding doors to the rear. We supplied our customer with samples of the two most popular colour choices of our woodgrain uPVC windows and they chose Irish Oak both sides, which goes perfectly with their sandstone surrounds. Then for the double front entrance doors and aluminium bifolds to the rear of the properties, they went for black.
To give equal sightlines, we dummy sashed everything. This essentially means that, from the outside, it looks as though every window could open even though only some can. It makes everything look more symmetrical. We supply and fit quite a lot of dummy sashes for this reason.
The installation took around two weeks for one of our teams to complete. It was a complete success and both properties have now been sold and are lived in.
