Enfield Windows recently installed timber bi-fold French doors, windows and a skylight to this stunning property in the leafy London suburb of Hampstead.
Our client found us after searching online for “timber windows and doors north London.” His most important condition was to retain the character of his home by installing timber units.
Many of the original windows were still in place, so adding uPVC window frames would have ruined the look and character of a house of this quality.
After sending over our fully detailed quotation and CAD drawings, the client decided to make a visit to our showroom where we have numerous timber windows and doors on display, along with an Atlas roof lantern.
Placing the Order
Our client was impressed by the quality and finish of the products and confirmed his order and contract. The following week our in-house surveyor went through all the details to arrange production of the new fittings, which included angular windows to be sited above the bi-folding doors.
Our timber products currently run on a six to eight-week lead time, as each bespoke product is carefully crafted using the latest state of the art CNC machinery. All finishes are carried out in moisture and dust resistant booths and finished using “Remmers” micro-porous paints.
Two weeks prior to delivery, the installation was scheduled in with the builder and our client.
On the first day, the installers fitted the new angled windows above the bi-fold doors and the Atlas roof lantern. On day two the upper windows were installed. These were casement style with Georgian glazing bars. On the third and final day of installation we fitted the stunning bi-folding doors and French doors.
Value of timber
As the pictures show, the renovation was a great success and the windows and doors have contributed to a clean and bright new look. This installation was a classic example of how the use of quality timber products will enhance and add value to a property – something that is rarely achieved by using cheaper uPVC or aluminium.
On properties such as this, making the extra commitment to install timber windows and doors gives back the character and quality many homes have lost since the uPVC surge of the 1980s. In recent years, timber has made a huge comeback on period properties and with reputable suppliers using the finest production and finishing methods, your home makeover can be truly stunning.
