Named Lowgate, this Lincolnshire property presented a unique opportunity for a comprehensive exterior upgrade that would not only enhance the property’s aesthetic appeal but also improve its overall functionality and energy efficiency. The existing uPVC doors had become outdated and were not in line with the owner’s vision for a modern and visually appealing living space.
As a result, the decision was made to replace the old uPVC doors and windows with new, sleek aluminium items to completely transform the property’s appearance and create a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.
Challenges We Faced
Several challenges were anticipated during the project, including:
- Compatibility with existing structure: Ensuring that the new aluminium sliding doors seamlessly integrate with the existing structure and align with the property’s architectural style.
- Weather resistance: Considering varying weather conditions, selecting aluminium sliding doors that are capable of withstanding rain, wind, and temperature fluctuations.
- Energy efficiency: Selecting doors with high thermal performance to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility costs.
- Installation: Coordinating the removal of the old uPVC doors and the precise installation of the new aluminium sliding doors without causing disruptions to the property’s occupants.
A collaborative approach was adopted to address the challenges and meet the client’s requirements.
The following steps were undertaken:
- Consultation and design: An initial consultation was conducted to understand the client’s vision and preferences in our showroom. A proposal was developed, showcasing the various styles of aluminium sliding doors available, along with their features and benefits.
- Material selection: High-quality aluminium sliding doors were chosen for their modern aesthetics, durability and excellent thermal performance. The doors were selected to maximise natural light intake and provide unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape.
- Customisation: The chosen aluminium sliding doors were customised to fit the property’s specific dimensions, ensuring a seamless fit within the existing structure.
- Installation: The removal of the old uPVC doors and installation of the new aluminium sliding doors were meticulously planned to minimise disruption. The installation team ensured proper alignment, sealing, and insulation to optimise energy efficiency and weather resistance.
- Finishing touches: The installation was completed with attention to detail, including proper framing, hardware installation, and finishing touches to ensure a polished and cohesive look.
