Service: French doors and complete replacement
Job value: £10,000 – £12,000

Caroline and Piers had been planning works to their garden flat for years but always felt it was too daunting to undertake. They needed more than a simple replacement of doors and windows to their kitchen.

The clients wanted to fit a new kitchen but they had to find a company that could handle three important points to the work. The first being that the window cill in the kitchen would be below the new kitchen worktop meaning opening and closing it would be difficult and awkward. The second was that they wanted the new set of doors to let as much light in as possible by knocking out some of the brickwork. Finally, they wanted a new exterior patio laid.

Naturally they thought they would need multiple tradespeople to carry out all this work but this was before they were introduced to Wandsworth Sash Windows!

We arranged for all the work to be done by one single fitting team. They started by removing the existing sash window. They then bricked up the opening to make it 300mm smaller. A new concrete cill was cast and a new timber double glazed sash window was installed. This allows the clients easy access to their kitchen window, being able to access it easily without having to organise their entire kitchen around this one feature.

Next was the French doors and new patio. Osman is one of our most experienced installers and he took pictures during the process of his work. The time it took from a starting point of a blank wall to having new doors fitted and a patio laid took two and a half days.

Caroline contacted us when the work was finished to say:

Wandsworth Sash Windows have recently installed a new sash window and French windows in our kitchen and have laid paving on our patio. We were delighted with the completed work. The builders were, not only extremely efficient and professional, they were also friendly and reliable. The work was completed to a very high standard. We were very pleased with the whole process.”
