Make the most of your home with architectural glazing

Poplar road project including roof glazing, French doors and windows

If the sunshine has got you thinking about how you can make the most of your home and garden spaces, you’re not alone. Blue skies and warm evenings evoke memories of holidays, so many of our clients get in touch at this time of year to start planning their project in readiness for Spring - or even to capture the last few days of that elusive Indian summer we’re always promised!

Replacing existing glazing

Over the years, improvements in manufacturing, design and materials have created modern, thermally efficient glazing. So, it may be time to look at replacing existing doors, windows or your roof lantern. Our glazing range features solutions to suit traditional, contemporary and modern homes – all with superior security features to provide you with peace of mind. 

Adding roof glazing to your home

Whilst the thought of adding roof glazing to your home may fill you with concerns, when you work with the right glazing company and builder, it needn’t be a stressful experience. From the iconic Aluminium Roof Lantern to the almost-invisible Pure Glass Flat Roof Light, we can work with you to find the perfect glazing for your home.

The addition of roof glazing not only enhances the natural light but will also create a stunning centre piece and provide breath-taking sky views all year round. Each roof glazing system is designed and manufactured to meet your needs, so whether you would like a modular Pure Glass Roof Light to span over 6 metres or a Classic Aluminium Roof Lantern, our Project Managers are on hand to advise.

Bifold, French or Sliding Doors?

The answer to this question can be rather tricky! Each door system has many advantages and will be the perfect solution for a project – but what about yours?  

All of our architectural glazing products are designed and manufactured to the precise specification of your project, so whether you would like to do a simple replacement or are working with your builder to widen an existing doorway for example, we can design the right glazing to fit seamlessley into your plans.

  • Bifold Doors have been a popular choice over the years and their biggest selling point is their ability to open up the entire wall of glass to create unobstructed views and access between indoor and outdoor spaces.

  • With the desire to achieve a maximum glazing to minimal frame ratio, Sliding Doors have grown in popularity over recent years. By choosing sliding doors, you can achieve a 99% glass / 1% frame sightline, creating an almost seamless view. Sliding doors are the perfect option if you have limited space to allow for outward opening doors.

  • Many people overlook French Doors which could be a real missed opportunity. Our range of French doors will allow you to create a modern focal point for your home, incorporating the latest design, security and thermal performance. The systems are versatile in allowing you to choose from inward or outward opening, plus by adding sidelights to your chosen French doors, you can achieve a wider glazed area and bring more natural light in.

Is a window upgrade needed?

Replacing the windows throughout your home can create a dramatic transformation both visually and in terms of the thermal efficiency of your home. If your windows were installed 20 – 25 years ago, it’s probably time to start thinking about replacements. Our range of aluminium and PVCu windows are designed to withstand adverse weather and meet the highest UK industry standards for security.

Our newest range, Steel Look, can be incorporated throughout the home and when paired with Steel Look Doors, the versatile design can also be configured to zone areas internally and create contemporary, light filled spaces.

The Exact approach

We love working with clients from the start of a project, as this allows us to help you achieve the very best glazing result. However, if you’ve already started your research, spoken to an architect or got your builder in place – we can still work with you and your team to make your transformation a reality.
