Timber bifold door installation in Ealing

Bifold door installation in Ealing, London

One of our recent timber bi-folding door projects was in the Ealing area of London.

The client had found pictures of our timber door range whilst searching Google images. After looking at our website, the clients requested a timber bi-folding door made using timber hardwood.

What makes Enfield Windows doors different from market alternatives is the timber we use. It is supplied in either Baltic Pine, Oak or the more popular hardwood. Everything is engineered cross grained, which helps the door resist against warping, twisting or swelling. This is unlike many other timber doors, which are often crafted using a single piece of timber.

Along with the fully engineered doors and frame is the unique two week factory finished spraying process. This takes place in airtight, chemical state of the art spray booths giving a perfectly even finish every time.

The glazing consists of 24mm toughened Argon filled double glazed units which also offer a low U-value of 1.2.

After the quotation was given and accepted we then carried out a detailed site survey where the aperture finished floor levels and opening configurations were checked and confirmed.

The next stage was to process the order and issue the client with a detailed CAD drawing (as above) to show every detail. This is a design specification we carry out for all of our timber products once an order is confirmed.

The lead time for our timber windows and doors is approximately six to eight weeks from survey. The installation was booked in with the customer two weeks prior to delivery. It was carried out in one day by our very own skilled timber team who carry out all of our timber installations in and around the north and central London areas.

As the pictures above show, these are stunning timber bifold doors, beautifully built and finished.

Our next Timber Installation will be in the Knebworth area in the coming week where we will be installing matching timber bi-folds and French doors.

 

 

Six part bifold door installation

Bifold door installation in Fulham, London

Enfield Windows recently installed an immaculate set of Origin Bi-folding doors to a property in Fulham, London.

BTL property services were undertaking a complete refurbishment of the property and the bi-fold doors were to be a key aspect of the renovation. Spanning over 5.6 metres, these six part doors covered the entire rear of the property.

BTL property services have offices based in Fulham and Chelsea and are a specialist high end refurbishment and building company. Their attention to detail they offer is second to none. Enfield Windows have worked on projects previously, supplying and installing products and we are pleased to say we have built a good relationship.

The original doors to be replaced were also aluminium but of a lesser quality which caused the client many issues.

With bi-folding doors the key thing to remember is the quality and strength of the brand. Origin are arguably the leading bi-fold door manufacturers in the UK. With a state of the art facility they are able to turn around their doors within five working days, an industry first.

Along with the speed of manufacturing, Origin are able to offer a twenty year guarantee on all working parts of their bifold doors. This is a testament to the quality of build and parts that are used in constructing these beautiful doors.

This particular set was to be manufactured in the ever popular Anthracite Grey. The client opted for standard handles, hinges and gaskets although Origin do offer colour coded or stainless steel plus the optional colour coded gaskets.

Installation

After survey was complete the doors were ordered and installed the following week by our two full time trained Origin installers.

As the pictures show, our one day installation was completed successfully and the client was over the moon with the new doors and the smooth ease with which they operated.

If you want further information on the Origin doors or any of our products please feel free to contact us at info@enfieldwindows.co.uk

At Enfield Windows we have a price promise. Due to the volume we supply and install of bi-folding doors, our aim for all of our clients is to better any like for like quotations.

We were recommended to our client by Another Level Lofts who were carrying out her loft conversion. We have previously worked with this high end conversion and refurbishment company on numerous projects in and around the north London area.

During a visit to our showroom, we discovered the client wanted to have a triple sash window and a single sash window using Timber hardwood as the material.

Enfield Windows – the bifold door experts

Enfield windows latest corner bi-fold door project was to replace the client’s old timber doors with a more modern contemporary maintenance free product.

After an initial enquiry was made via our web site, we were invited to the client’s property to discuss the product, material, colour and glazing requirements for the project.

The doors being replaced were one section of three parts. These were situated alongside a larger three and four part part set that cohesively worked as one, creating a large open corner space.

With such a vast span of glazed walling the glass specification had to be highly efficient during colder months of the year.

Pilkington Glass

Pilkington K Glass™ S is the latest high performance, low-emission soft coated product which offers excellent thermal insulation when incorporated within an Insulating Glass Unit (IGU). It has a highly neutral appearance with optimal solar heat gain, thermal insulation and light transmission to provide the highest Window Energy Rating (WER) performance.

For a door set with a span such as this and with so many moving parts the best choice for material was aluminium. With strong frames and sashes and the equally strong running gears, not only is this a great low maintenance modern material but it’s contemporary look and perfect straight lines completely enhances any area it is situated in.

After going though Origins stock choice of colours that include Slate grey, Black grey, Anthracite Grey and black or white, the slightly lighter Slate grey was chosen. Origin offer up to 200 colour combinations from the RAL colour chart.

Furniture was next area to be decided on. Originally the order placed was for black hinges and gaskets with a stainless steel handle. During the ordering process a member of our installations team called the client to suggest that colour coded gaskets and stainless hinges would be a better choice for the overall look and finish to which the customer agreed and the order was placed.

The diary was space was allocated and within three weeks of our survey the project was completed. During the first day of installation our three highly skilled installers removed and replaced all the doors! This allowed our team to spend the second day carrying out the final detailed trimming and finishing which along with installing itself is key to the overall look.

The pictures speak for themselves – a stunning the new corner and single set are a wonderful addition to the garden and completely transform the rear of the client’s property. The client was extremely happy with the service we provided and more importantly the final result.

Enfield windows currently have three dedicated Origin bi-fold door installers and our customer promise is that we are able to offer a competitive cost survey, supply and install within ten days and in many cases five days. This is something many companies are unable to achieve. Along with our skilled fitters, the product and lead time is what makes us the No.1 google ranked corner bi-fold installers in London.

Timber window installation in Winchmore Hill, north London

Enfield windows most recent installation was in Winchmore hill area of north London. We are proud to say that this was the third property within the same road in which we replaced the windows, using timber as the choice of material. This time Enfield Windows had been recommended by a previous client living next door.

We were asked to replace two large bay windows and one small front bay window with “like for like” using Hardwood Meranti timber. The project was quoted at a highly competitive rate beating our closest rival by over £1200.00 whilst still supplying the same product.

After the deposit was taken we arranged for the surveyor to visit and take accurate measurements for the order. Internal trims, windows boards and architraves were also measured to be replaced in factory finished timber.

The manufacturing process took approximately five weeks during which time we acquired the gold furniture fittings and scheduled the installation to be booked in on delivery of the frames.

The installers carried out the work over three and a half days and as the results show the new windows are another great addition, not only to the premises but also to the street.

The first point of contact was via our website and a consultation was scheduled by a member of the office to meet and discuss various options for the rear windows. The client also wanted to change her old timber French doors leading into the garden to timber with a panelled detail section at the bottom and an opening fan window above.

Whilst on the sales visit the client mentioned she was having the front windows replaced in timber with a quotation agreed by a supplier. Our sales representative offered to show the client our timber brochure and pictures from some of our recent timber installations with a view to offering a no obligation quote to try and better the original price she had received.

White sash timber windows

Sash timber window installation london

 Sash timber window installation in Walthamstow, London.

One of our recent installations was to restore the character of a property undergoing a complete refurbishment in the Walthamstow area in London.

The style and level of refurbishment of the property warranted traditional sash style windows. The builder searched online for traditional timber style sash windows then arranged to meet our installations manager in the showroom to view our timber window range.

After approving the quality of finish and learning more from our staff about the process in which our timber sash windows are manufactured, the dimensions were given and a quotation was put into place.

All of our timber products come with a ten year warranty. This warranty covers not only the installation and hardware, but also unlike many other timber suppliers such is the advanced quality of finish we also are able to offer a ten year warranty on the paint!

In total the order was agreed for seven hardwood timber sash windows all to be installed at the front of the property. The furniture choice was satin chrome and all internal architraves and trims were factory finished.

The installation took place over three days where our installers worked at a pace to ensure the installation was carried out diligently and professionally.

Timber sash and casement windows

Enfield windows recently undertook a project in the Finsbury Park area of London.

The client was refurbishing a large town house which also required new timber windows. After visiting our website they arranged a visit to our showroom. There, we discussed the various options available and the numerous benefits our hardwood window range offer.

After the plans for the project were sent to us, we were able to form an accurate and competitive proposal. The project consisted of thirteen timber sash windows, one timber casement window and French doors in RAL colour 9001. (An attractive cream)

With every timber project we undertake, liaising with our manufacturing partners is a key part of our success, every detail is planned and accurately executed. We offer clients the option of taking a small section of architrave from the original windows in the property to use for a near perfect match when producing the new factory finished trims. Often the window architraves will match with the existing internal door frames.

The character of a property and its heart often lies in the original door and window frames so keeping them accurately replicated is part of the attraction when using timber. With the added benefits of energy efficiency, safety and security, timber windows are becoming more and more popular around the London area.

 Installation

After our proposal was agreed, Enfield windows completed a detailed contract and a survey was booked. We made templates for all of the three front arched windows and sent these to our manufacturers. This ensures a perfectly accurate fit.

During the surveying process we often take various key photographs and specific details to create a file that contains all the information we need. This ensures every department within the company from ordering, manufacturing and installations are fully informed at every stage.

The installation was scheduled over six days with four installers on site to help. Having a large team of installers helps when some of the larger windows weighed in excess of 150kg.

As the pictures show, the new timber sash windows add a large part of the character to the now fully restored property. The clients were thrilled with their new timber windows and also commented on the additional warmth in every room and reduction in outside noise the new double glazed windows offer.
