Replacing a window with upvc French Doors

With the summer approaching, our minds turn to the outdoor space in our homes and how we can make the most of it during the warmer weather. The main consideration is increasing the access to the garden to make the whole house a more workable space. We recently had an appointment with a young couple in Barry who had just bought a house and wanted to improve the access to the garden before they moved in.

During the appointment they decided that they would like to remove a window from the existing dark lounge and install patio doors with sidescreens. To match in with the exisitng windows, the doors were designed with georgian bars. These kind of projects can be slightly messy although we always cover surfaces with dustsheet before any work is started. The existing window was removed and the new opening cut out by our building team, a new lintel is installed to support the walls and the new french doors were fitted. Of course, we always hoover and clean up before we leave, as well as removing all of the rubbish.

Once the French doors were fitted we plastered the walls internally and rendered the external walls. The change to the house was dramatic with the customers now having a light and spacious room that will be ideal for entertaining during the summer months. If you are considering this type of project for your home in the cardiff area, why not give us a call for an initial appointment. We can discuss the different options such as french, patio or bi fold doors and discuss the timescale and price for your home improvements. There are a few factors that may affect the price such as moving any electrical points or pipework, we are always happy to deal with this for you or let you organise the work before we arrive to carry out the fitting.

Upvc Windows in Cardiff with stained glass

During our initial appointments we spend as much time as possible designing the windows and doors that you would like for your home. Purchasing new double glazing can be a large outlay and it is vital that as a customer you receive the quality and look for your home that you want.

We recently replaced all of the windows in a house in Radyr, Cardiff, which currently had wooden windows with stunning stained glass. The customers told us that they wanted to keep the original stained glass as it was one of the features that they loved about the house. When considering having decorative glass in your home, there are 2 options; we can either copy an existing or new pattern onto your new windows when they are manufactured or we can remove the existing glass and have it put into double glazed units. Even glass that has some damage to it can be restored or repiared by our experts.

To the front of the house we installed black on white bay windows, this matched the original colour of the windows and many of the neighbours properties also. From the inside the refurbished glass looks stunning against the white rehau frames.

We also produced some of the windows using rosewood on the inside and white on the outside. This is an unusual request and slightly more expensive but it fitted in perfectly with the interior design of the house. The original stained glass looks lovely against the rosewood colour.

In addition to replacing the windows for upvc, we also fitted new French doors in white on rosewood.
