Timber windows and French doors in Finsbury Park, north London

Our most  recent timber window installation took place in the leafy Finsbury park area in north London.

Our customer contacted Enfield windows after a builder’s recommendation who maintains the property. The client currently rents out the flats so he wasn’t able to be present during the sale or installation process. All correspondence was carried out via telephone and email.

We were handed the keys and invited to visit the property and carry out a full site survey of the windows and doors that needed replacing. There was a variety of windows and doors that required replacement including timber sash and casement windows and french door sets and single doors.

After a proposal was sent and the project cost was agreed, CAD drawings were provided to the client as there were specific arch details and Astragal glazing bar layouts included in some of the frames.

By providing the CAD drawings the client was able to see in detail how the products would look before the order was sent to production.

During the six to eight week manufacturing process the installation was scheduled into our diary.

The installation was carried out over a four day period and as the pictures show it is another stunning installation using the very best timber windows within the market.

Timber window installation london

Timber window installation in north London

Enfield Windows would like to give you an insight into one of our most recent timber window installations in north London. The installation took place in the Winchmore hill area.

The first point of contact with the client was by a telephone call to our offices where we were invited to visit the customer’s home to provide a quotation for new windows and doors. The sales adviser was booked to visit the property and go through the specific requirements, the whole house in need of new windows and doors.

The client had opted for using a quality uPvc product for the upstairs windows and a replicated timber product for all of the downstairs.

The timber products required had to be very specific. Within the area, most homes have a detailed stepped head in the window sashes that the client was very keen to replicate. This is a detail that can only be reproduced in timber windows and doors.

The sales advisor took the necessary measurements and detailed layouts whilst also explaining the benefits of our superior timber windows and doors. The advisor suggested that customer should visit the showroom to view our timber and uPvc products whilst we would prepare a written proposal detailing the specific requirements that had been discussed during the visit.

The approach we choose is not to offer a quote on the spot unlike many other companies that would often read off a structured price lists. They generally have one goal when being invited to your home, which is the hard sell with the aim to sign you up on the day.

Our ethos is to offer a tailored service and advice on what would be better suited to the property as each home and client have different ideas and expectations about what they want to achieve.

After the quotation was given and a visit was made to our showroom the client accepted our proposal and the ball was set rolling to provide CAD drawings and a detailed contract followed by a full site survey.

The survey was carried out by our experienced surveyor who took his time to go through the property ensuring all the necessary accurate measurements and configurations were taken ready for the order to be placed for manufacturing.

The installation was booked in along with the client choosing architraves, handles and furniture that they felt would be best suited to their home and taste.

Installation

The windows were installed by our very own employed installation team who are highly skilled and very meticulous within their work. All the internal trims window boards and architraves used were factory finished leaving the customer with no re-decoration work.

The final outcome is a stunning installation using the very best products and materials whilst still at a competitive price, the installation has led to recent enquiries and orders within the area.

Why did the client choose Enfield windows?

The feedback from the client was that the time and effort Nick had put into the proposal whilst not applying any pressure or sales tactics was key in giving the customer confidence that we were not just out for the sale. We were told that Adam and Greg, the installers, were a pleasure to have in their home and the attention to detail along with the product far surpassed their expectations.

Local residents were so impressed with our installation, we have already received an order from a neighbour.

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.

R9 bay window in white with solidor front door

Residence 9 windows installation in Winchmore Hill, north London

Our most recent installation of the Residence 9 (R9) window product was in the Winchmore hill area of north London.

Our customer had recently purchased the property and was in the process of renovating the house from top to bottom. One of the largest projects was to replace the old timber windows with a thermally efficient and maintenance free replica product.

We are pleased to say we were recommended to the customer by her builders. After a brief chat an appointment was made to visit our showroom and go through what products would be best suitable for the character and style of the property.

As mentioned in previous blogs, at Enfield Windows we offer a wide range of affordable quality products to suit all property periods. From traditional timber conservation approved uPVC, aluminium and standard or flush Liniar uPVC products, you certainly aren’t limited on choice.

It was decided that the product best suited to the property and the budget for the windows was the Residence 9 product. The choice was to keep to the original design of the windows with leaded glass and traditional handles and hardware.

Conservation approved and thermally efficient, this window is truly a stunning example of the how far the uPVC window has evolved. Incredible details that only the R9 products offer includes hand built fabrication using no welding machines or joints, factory bonded double or triple glazed units, a nine chambered thermally efficient outer frame with flush casement finish.

To the front of the property was a three part bay window and three further flat windows. To the rear and side an additional five windows also to the rear in the newly built extension was a set of French doors and side flags all manufactured using the R9 profile.

The front door which was from the Solidor range of timber cored maintenance free doors in the ever popular Chartwell green. We also replaced the original shutters using a replica Upvc factory finished Chartwell green to match the front door.

All internal finishes were in timber hard and softwood, and as the pictures show the front of the house is totally transformed to where it was pictures of the rear will follow.

Atlas sky light and Origin bi-fold door installation

Enfield windows recently under took an installation in Southgate, north London. We had been recommended to the customer by D.G.R Carpentry & Building, who use Enfield windows for many of their building projects.

The client’s aim was extend the rear of their property in order to create a new open plan kitchen diner. However they were conscious of the amount of light that would be available due to limited window space.

The solution was to install a modern contemporary skylight onto the flat roof which would enable light to flood into the rear end of the extension.

At Enfield windows we supply and install Atlas skylights. Unlike many roof lights on the market, Atlas skylights are fully aluminium and the roof bars have a sleek width of only 40mm which is something UPVC skylights can’t replicate.

The average roof bar on similar UPVC skylights is 60mm and in some cases 70mm. Also due to the design and strength in the structure there are no large bulk heads where the frames meet to a joint.

Atlas skylights are a great product that offers stylish and slim lines every time. Double glazed glass is standard, plus there is the option of triple glazed units. All glazing is self-cleaning and climate controlled glass in either Active blue or Neutral finishes.

Origin Bifold doors

A five part set of doors were chosen to run across the entire width of the extension in the ever popular Anthracite grey.

For those seeking to install bi-fold doors, Origin has become the leading brand and popular choice amongst many high end glazing companies who are striving to offer their clients the very best in bi-folding doors.

The majority of door manufacturers will only offer a ten year guarantee, but with Origin a twenty year guarantee is standard when installed by a qualified Origin installer. This guarantee covers all working parts – handles, hinges and locks which prove the build quality really is second to none.

Not only are these doors well engineered and aesthetically pleasing, the options Origin offer are unlike many other manufactures. There is a choice of colour coded or stainless steel handles and hinges and they also offer colour coded Q-Lon gaskets. These neatly hug around the frame of each door leaf. This advanced gasket has a foam filled centre unlike the rubber seals on other doors giving the doors a guaranteed tight snug seal every time they shut whilst also eliminating the natural compression and break down that often occurs on dense rubber seals.

As the pictures show, the doors and skylight are an integral part of the extension, flooding the room with light and creating a modern contemporary feel.

In our show room we have on display a fully working three and four part door along with the full origin colour and furniture range.

Grey corner bifold door installation

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.

White timber bay window closeup

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.

Since the completion of this installation we have been invited to quote for works at another neighbouring property!
