Roofline
The roof perimeter and eaves of your home are among the most exposed elements of the house. Where traditional timber components have been used, these typically need regular maintenance to prevent deterioration, renew paintwork and preserve appearances. These requirements are inevitably expensive and time-consuming and often disruptive. Our roofline products make it possible to eliminate these repetitive tasks. Our bargeboard fascia and soffit systems combined with replacement guttering provide an attractive and low-maintenance alternative to timber.

Porches
Basically porches are small conservatories, with the same range of styles and products available. And just as our conservatories all our porches are made to measure so you can create the style that is suitable for you home.

Roofs:
Porch roofs can be a conventional timber / felt construction, a pitched tiled roof, or our full range of conservatory roofs systems are available to create cost effective attractive designs. The full range of conservatory roof glazing is also available to create the right feel to the porch. GRP Flexi-Porch roofs make an attractive porch and are a design that is quite unique and rare.

Doors:
A full range of doors is also available for the entrance to the porch. While the most popular is a single door, French doors are an effective way of making a feature of the entrance to you home; they can also be fitted with full moulded panels to create the look of a timber double entrance door.

Ventilation:
While a porch is not a room which you will be spending long periods of time in a south facing porch will get hot so it is advisable to put in some form of ventilation.

Glass:
Porches are an ideal way to make a feature out of the entrance to you home. Our full range of decorative glass is available to complement your design and add your own touch of flare. Decorative bevelled cut glass is a particularly attractive feature. Toughened safety glass is installed to building regulations. Pilkington “K” glass, Pilkington Active glass and Lifestyles glazing upgrades can all be fitted into a porch design.

Base:
The base of a porch is as varied as a conservatory base. You may want a small wall at the base of your porch or possibly a full height wall at one or both sides to give a permanent wall to hang coats against. Alternatively a fully glazed design to let more light in may be more to your liking and we can also use moulded panels to create a low level feature.

Planning Permission:
Porches can be constructed up to three square meters on the front of a residential property without the need for planning permission.

Doors
Why choose Composite Doors
Composite doors offer the look and feel of a timber door without any of the inherent problems , such as cracking, bowing or twisting. They have a high density foam core, which offers excellent strength and thermal performance, and a durable Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin to protect from the elements. GRP is the same material that is used to make the hull of lifeboats - demonstrating just how tough it really is!

And unlike timber, composite doors are incredibly low maintenance - an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth will restore it to its original finish.

5 Point Lock
Most PVC doors have a 3 or 4 point lock, but our composite doors have a 5 point lock, meaning it is one of the highest performing on the market today.

Anti Snap, Pick, Bump and Drill Cylinder Burglar's use multiple techniques to try and break in through a door, including snapping the cylinder or using an adapted key to bump the lock. Our composite doors are designed to withstand the three methods of attack during a burglary
Our composite doors are attractive, highly secure, energy efficient and long lasting- perfect for the modern homeowner.

uPVC Doors
Everyone wants to be more secure at home but no one wants to live in a fortress. And that is the beauty of our residential door system.

It means that the door frame has the strength and reliability you need to keep your home safe. But because the system is fitted to all of our wide range of stylish high performance residential doors, you can choose security without compromising on the great looks of the door.

A basic PVC-U door may look solid - but it will provide a very low standard of security, especially if it is only fitted with cam locking devices. These just won't stand up to a thief with a jemmy.
In tests, doors with simple cam locking mechanisms were forced open in ten seconds or less. So it is imperative that you think carefully about your choice of door.

As with the window styles there are many different styles of doors to choose from and they can be chosen to complement the style of your home. All of which can be fitted using a combination of glass, moulded panels and integrated frame section. Most PVCu single doors are fitted using moulded panels. However, we are finding that cruciform doors and half cruciform doors are becoming more popular. These doors can also be glazed with a vast number of leaded or decorative glass designs which are available.

The most popular design of door for a patio is a French door. A French door has many advantages, it can be used as a single door for easy access and when both doors are open provide easy access for furniture. Outward opening doors is a popular choice so there is no detriment to the floor space of the room when the doors are open We install all our French doors with handles on both doors for ease of use, all are fitted with heavy duty adjustable flag hinges and high security locking.
Available in a huge variety of styles, colour options and woodgrain finishes, we have an entrance door to suit your home. PVC-u doors offer high levels of security and exceptional protection against the elements, with air-tight seals to keep out any drafts. What’s more, minimal maintenance is required to retain your door’s appearance and performance.

French and Patio doors are the most popular choice for letting extra light into your home as well as giving easy access to your garden. Since around 1965 patio doors have become a very popular addition to many homes, it's the link between the house and garden.

Many home owners who only have a window looking out onto their garden from their lounge or dining room often have that window removed and a set of patio or French doors fitted. This immediately gives a new dimension to that room.

Patio doors are glazed with safety glass as standard, to meet with the Glass and Glazing Federation rules.
There are various finishes from white, or wood grains so if you have hardwood windows that you need to match this should not be a problem. Security is very good as all have very good locking systems and come with a 10 year guarantee.

In line patio doors have one panel to slide as per most peoples' idea of a patio doors, there the ones we all remember and have been around for about 40 years so they have stood the test of time, and as patio doors go they are still very good valve for money.
