“We purchased the house in 2013 and shortly after moving in, moved back out!” explains Mrs Grant when speaking of her home in the Hertfordshire countryside.
“When we moved in, the house needed a lot of work. It was roughly 23 years old and no work had ever been done to it. We planned a large refurbishment project and had to move out to complete it faster”.
As the home is situated within a conservation area, Mrs Grant informs how they came across the Dale range, “We had been considering uPVC products initially, however, we were informed by our local conservation authority that any new windows and doors would need to be timber so we undertook some research and became aware of Dale”.
The original windows in the property were poor performing, hard to open and finished in a dark stain which Mrs Grant felt made the rooms feel gloomy. New flush casement windows, entrance doors, bi-fold doors and French doors have now been installed in the home. The majority have been specified in a lighter dual colour finish of ‘Silk Grey’ externally and ‘Signal White’ internally. The new entrance doors differ slightly, with ‘Grey Blue’ specified externally.
At the rear of the property, original French doors and casement windows have now been removed and replaced with a large, 4-panel set of bi-fold doors, perfectly opening up the kitchen/dining area and allowing better views of the lovely garden. “I’m a keen gardener so the new bi-fold doors were an excellent choice!”.
“The new windows and doors have made such a difference! The house feels much lighter now and homelier” comments Mrs Grant.
