Back on site and doing what we love

on site roof glazing installation with spider crane

The last few months have certainly been a challenge, so it was great to see our team of expert installers on site in Dorking earlier this week.

Expertise on hand

We are yet to be outwitted by a glazing request, so whilst this project posed some interesting obstacles, the team were eager to achieve another seamless install.

Due to its terraced location, our client’s Surrey home has very limited access. So, in preparation for the project we did a video call with the homeowner to walk through the location allowing us to  plan the most effective delivery and installation.

Spider crane does it again

When it comes to safely delivering large scale glazing into position at challenging sites, there’s no better team than spider crane and our onsite experts. Having spent many years honing their operating skills, we can deliver glass almost anywhere!

This particular project included navigating a 70m long narrow rear alleyway and gate. With a cool head and steady hands, the 2520mm x 1800mm Pure Glass Flat Roof Light was gently lifted over and into position on the roof of the new rear extension.

An important part of your renovation or extension is the planning; we like to be involved in the early stages with your architect / builder so that we can help you to ensure you are able to achieve the glazing vision for your home – and plan for the installation in case more specialist equipment is needed.

Bespoke roof glazing

Each and every piece of architectural glazing is made specifically to your needs. From size, frame colour and hardware to the glass specification. Working with you and your team to understand the location, use, size and requirements of the glazing allows us to recommend the very best specification of glass for your project.

Whether you choose toughened, solar control, self-cleaning, double or triple glazing – our expert team are on hand to ensure it performs.
