Schuco French Doors rear extension Shalford Surrey

Our clients in the Surrey village of Shalford decided to enhance their home by adding a single storey rear extension, expanding their kitchen, living and dining space.

Continuing relationships with Waverley Construction

We were delighted to be involved with this project and work with long-time partner Waverley Construction again. As architectural glazing specialists, we regularly work with builders and architects – being involved in the early stages of project design and development allows us to add our expertise and ensure the project achieves the required transformation. 

Key design elements such as a flush threshold, slim sight-lines and frameless views all require specialist knowledge and expertise to achieve. With their years of experience, our Project Managers work with you and your team to provide you with high-quality glazing supported by our responsive end-to-end project management.

Combining architectural glazing

With a large single storey extension, there are many considerations when it comes to the glazing required. How will the areas be used? How should the open plan living space be zoned? What access is required to and from each area? And many more questions! 

Utilising architectural glazing can totally transform not only the natural light in an area, it can also influence the use and feel of your home. Adding roof glazing floods the space below with light and  creates a focal point, immediately opening up the room with a breath-taking view. Combining roof glazing with carefully chosen, complementary doors and windows creates a light, bright and cohesive interior.

Flat roof minimalism

Our clients in Shalford chose a Pure Glass Flat Roof Light for the new kitchen and dining area. The 3800mm x 1500mm 3 pane roof light is positioned over the dining area, creating a stunning feature and zoning the kitchen and dining areas.

The Pure Glass Flat Roof Light exudes minimalist perfection with its hidden aluminium frame and subtle 5o pitch to ensure effective water drainage. Available in 4 styles; Single Pane, Modular Silicone Join, Modular Glass Lintel and Modular Aluminium Beam, the Pure Glass Flat Roof Light is designed to your exact size requirements. The addition of the glass lintels or aluminium beams within the roof light allows you to achieve a greater span of glazing, for that truly breath-taking centrepiece.

The glazing specification for each roof light will be discussed during the planning stages and tailored to the design, position and location of the project for optimum performance. Our exceptional glazing features solar control, self-cleaning, double glazed, toughened glass as standard, with the option of upgrading to triple glazing if required.

Slimline Schüco French doors

Over recent years, French Doors have been often forgotten in the ever-popular dream of fully opening glazed walls achieved with bifold doors. However, there is no doubt that the timeless and versatile design of Schüco French Doors can be the perfect solution to a project.

Schüco French doors combine exceptional engineering with high-quality performance and contemporary styling – perfectly complementing the minimal aesthetic of the Pure Glass Flat Roof Light and creating an elegant interior finish. As well as 6 standard RAL colours, bespoke RAL colours are available upon request.

Completing the look with an aluminium picture window

Having added a flat roof light to the dining area, it was important to ensure the kitchen was also flooded with natural light and had views over the garden. The addition of a 1500mm x 1500mm fixed pane aluminium window, with a RAL9005 black frame to match the Schüco French Doors, provides an inspiring, ever-changing view from the new kitchen.
