As we’ve been granted ‘Premium Installer’ status by Solidor, we’re clearly no strangers to installing their excellent offering of composite doors. We’re also no strangers to the scenic rural setting of Spreyton either. Our expert team of installers recently installed two Solidor doors onto the home of a customer there.

Leaded glass and Twilight Grey for a stylish finish

When fitting new windows and doors on a property, it’s important for them to enhance the property’s original character. As this particular property was a charming cottage, the quaint allure of a stable door was, therefore, an ideal choice for the rear of the property. To ensure for consistency with the cottage’s windows, leaded glass was also incorporated into its design.

For the front door, we changed the glass in the adjacent window to a sandblasted unit with a clear border. This was done in order to complement the new door, ensuring consistency throughout the front of the property.

The Twilight Grey colour, which is a new addition to the Solidor colour range, was then chosen for the colour of each door, ensuring their appearance was strikingly stylish but still in keeping with the traditional cottage setting.

A practical and energy-efficient addition to their home

One unique feature of stable doors is that the top and bottom parts can be operated independently of one another. Therefore, the top part can be opened up and air can make its way inside whilst the bottom half remains closed, preventing any animals or children from venturing outside. So, now our Spreyton customer can open up their home and take in the outdoors in a secure way.

Seeing as Solidor doors have a maximum U-value of 1.5W/m2k, whenever their new doors are shut, they’ll keep plenty of heat inside their home too.

Maximum home security thanks to a ‘solid door’

As a door provides a potential route into the home, it’s essential for it to be properly reinforced against potential intrusions. Fortunately, Solidor doors, as their name suggests, really are incredibly secure. They have a 48mm solid timber core, which is 10% thicker than other composites, giving them incredible rigidity. They also use one of the most secure locking cylinders on the market – the Ultion locking cylinder. These are known for their ability to prevent entry to the home even after being snapped twice.

As a result of these impressive security features, our Spreyton customer’s home is highly protected against unwanted visitors. You can’t put a price on peace of mind and by choosing a Solidor composite door from us, peace of mind is exactly what our customer got.

"Brilliant local company. Installed a new door for my father (after a recommendation by a friend). Great product, great price, but (& I can not stress this enough) their kindness & care dealing with an elderly gent, especially regarding the guarantee (so both myself as his son & he could have a copy) was amazing. I genuinely did not believe service like this existed any more. Lovely people to do business with & a company I can thoroughly recommend."

"Through a recommendation, I popped into the office to see if they could help me source a new door handle. Nick was extremely helpful and ordered one for me through a company they use. I will certainly recommend the company to family and friends and I will use them for replacement windows and doors in the future. Many thanks for the free tin of silicone spray!"

Nick came out the same day was very helpful with ideas and suggestions of what types of windows that would suit and with 24 hrs a quotation was waiting in my inbox. We shall be almost certainly be putting an order in shortly. Cannot recommend this company more highly to anyone thinking of new windows or doors should definitely give Nick a call."
