Location: Lower Earley, Reading
The owners of this modern detached home in Lower Earley wanted a maintenance-free solution when it came to replacing their double glazed uPVC windows and front door.
The property had been built in the 1990s and fitted with uPVC windows throughout. However, the windows were reaching the end of their service life with the sealed units, locking systems and hinges all showing signs of wear and tear. The owners also wanted to replace their existing front door with a new door that would not only look good, but would also provide improved heat insulation and outstanding security.
Following a consultation with our designers, our client selected our uPVC double glazed windows from our Rustique range. With their slim, sculptured ‘ovolo’ edge and internal Georgian bars, the windows complemented the style of the property perfectly. The windows offer superb sound insulation and come with high security hinges and extra strong locking systems as standard.
For added kerb appeal, our client chose an Apeer composite door in a striking red woodgrain finish. Stronger and more thermally efficient than standard 44mm doors, the triple glazed door features a 70mm thick sash and a double rebate to prevent draughts and improve energy efficiency. It provides optimum security thanks to its steel hinge bolts and locking system, which incorporates an anti-snap, anti-drill and anti-pick cylinder as standard. The client chose contemporary chrome hardware and a glazed side panel to maximise light in to the hall.
The Orangery has added much needed space for the whole family to enjoy.
We also replaced the fascias, soffits, guttering and downpipes. For a more authentic look, our client chose to replace the original white guttering with classic black.
Our client said: “The new windows, front door and fascias have given the property a new lease of life. The house looks sharp and clean and we love our new red front door!”
