Case studies: Former bungalow converted into family home

Former Bungalow Converted into family home6

Where once previously stood a private bungalow, now stands this impressive new build property in Gloucestershire. The site was purchased by Mr Daniels who opted to demolish the existing bungalow and rebuild from scratch, due to the financial incentives that come with a new build property.

Situated within a conservation area, the local planning authorities informed Mr Daniels that the new windows and doors must be timber and so, Mr Daniels took his time researching different suppliers and options. “I went to the National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon and visited the Dale stand there. I really liked the look of the products on display and so I took a brochure away with me but at the time I thought it would be out of my reach financially”.

After speaking with a friend of his who is also in the building industry, Mr Daniels learnt that his friend had recently installed some Dale products on another local project and he highly recommended Dale to him.

“After this, I got in touch with the Dale team. Matt visited and brought along a sample product. He was very helpful throughout and it was great to discover that the Dale range was within my budget after all!” Mr Daniels comments.

Following this meeting, Dale were specified, and Mr Daniels ordered through his local builders merchant. As Mr Daniels works in the industry, he completed some of the work on the house himself alongside the construction team. “The builders have all been really impressed with the quality of the Dale products”.

The new entrance doors and flush casement windows in ‘Pebble Grey’ are a perfect accompaniment to the traditional Cotswold stone finish of the property and Mr Daniels couldn’t be happier.

“A nearby house down the road has also had new timber windows installed recently, albeit from a different supplier. I much prefer the finish of the Dale products and everybody involved with this build has told me how impressed they are with the high quality”. Mr Daniels explains.

“At the beginning, I also got a quote for aluminium products to serve as a comparison. I much preferred the timber products from Dale regardless of the planning authorities ruling anyway so this was an added benefit.”
