For a luxury home located in the Kent countryside, the highest performance windows and doors were specified. The private house had a north facing aspect with a large patio area that was greatly under used.
The homeowners wished to adapt the space as part of a major renovation programme which included the replacement of all windows and doors. FrameXpress was contracted to supply all products to the highest specification within a tight schedule to meet the demands of the property owners.
A variety of styles and colours were incorporated in both pvc-u and aluminium products. Large shaped units were produced to make optimum use light as well as casement windows and doors all of which were manufactured in Rosewood foil to complement the style of the house. Also, rooflights were fabricated in anthracite grey pvc-u to blend with the slate roof.
As the homeowners were looking to enjoy their garden and utilise the space rather than lose it to the shade, they opted for an aluminium conservatory, given the thermal performance benefits that could be achieved. frameXpress manufactured this in brown aluminium to match the window and door aesthetic. The extension incorporated a Quantal glazed roofing system along with aluminium bifold doors so that the space could be opened up in the summer months.
Security was also a consideration with the property in a premium position in Kent and the owners keen to minimise temptation for the casual burglar. This meant that stipulations on Secured By Design guarantees were made to provide reassurances on safety and security throughout the property.
Ian Davis, Sales Manager comments, “On premium properties there is always the potential for attack by intruders with intent. Providing our customers with the reassurance of industry accreditation ensures that they can work with something more than just price when discussing benefits with consumers.
Secured By Design and PAS 24 accreditations reinforce the credibility of the production standards available from frameXpress. Consumers are cautious when spending hard earned cash as they look to make overall personal statements that will last, whilst at the same time adding practical value to their homes.”
Aluminium and pvc-u options have seen a steady increase in sales since being introduced into the frameXpress portfolio, with urban design-led specifications proving some of the most popular. More recently, the company has seen an increase in domestic projects as aluminium provides a striking alternative that offers excellent performance values.
