Making The Neighbours Green With Envy

Our lovely customer in South Shore, Blackpool inherited these French doors as their main entrance to the house when it was bought.

When constructed, these beautiful, imposing Victorian-era built properties were finished off with a solid wood front door, often featuring wonderfully ornate, brightly polished, brash door furniture.

Being so wide, the original wooden doors were specially crafted for that property. Finding a modern alternative to suit most pockets must’ve proved difficult as there are many houses down that same street to have done the same.

An unusually sized front door

As is the case with our customer, many of the larger homes feature an internal porch and a part-glazed secondary door, allowing visitors to take off their coats and kick off their boots before entering the main house.

The crux of the problem is the distance between the opening of the front door and the step up into the hallway through that secondary door.

So, when our customer presented our surveyor with their ‘Dream Door’, he knew he could help straight away.

As an experienced, time-served, fully qualified joiner, our surveyor knew that if he were to set the door and its surround slightly forward, our customer could have exactly what they wanted.

…And here you have it!

A solid, composite door in ’agate grey’ with polished chrome door furniture. The surround is set with energy-efficient, argon-gas-filled double-glazed units and white astragal bars.

  • Our customer placed their order on June 6th, 2023 with a 3 – 5 five-week lead time for installation
  • The deposit paid was protected straight away with Installsure Deposit Indemnity Scheme the cost of which is included in the price
  • Our installations team was ready to go on July 10th, 2023, but the customer confirmed their preferred date of July 20th, 2023

There’s nothing more to say really…. the difference speaks for itself. This door will be the ‘head-turner’ in the street for years to come!

One very happy customer

Well done Dave for your expertise, solution-finding, smart way of thinking; To Rob for a slick ordering process and close liaison with suppliers: To Kerry & Toria for their effortless professionalism and profoundly genuine care for the customer; To Darren, Abbey & Wayne for their pre-installation management …and finally to John & Lloyd for excelling, yet again, with their workmanship & professionalism.
