Supplying and installing high-performance home improvement solutions is what we do best, so if you’re searching for valuable inspiration for your own contemporary home improvement, the following case study is sure to motivate you.

In 2017, our services were required to assist a local builder and private developer with an extensive renovation project on a 4-bedroom detached new build, located in the Ferndown/Ringwood area of Poole. The project brief called for the Poole Joinery team to supply and fit high-quality windows and doors throughout, as well as a fantastic roof lantern to transform the open-plan kitchen/living area. Having used us for previous projects, they knew they could count on us to complete the project to the highest standard within the allotted timescale.

Thermally sound & stylish replacement uPVC windows

In full compliance with the latest building regulations, all rooms at first floor level (excluding bathrooms/shower rooms) were fitted with opening casement windows of minimum clear size 450 mm x 450 mm, with a minimum area 0.33m2 at a maximum of 1100mm above floor level. Utilising low E-coated double glazing boasting minimum U-values of 1.2 W/m2k, our specialist uPVC casement windows smoothly replicate the look of premium aluminium frames whilst benefiting from the outstanding insulating qualities that uPVC is renowned for.

We’re sure you’ll agree that the sleek lines of these modern windows truly complement the properties existing modern cladding.

To complete the look, 2 sets of uPVC bifold doors were installed to effectively showcase the magnificent open-plan kitchen/living space. Built from high-performance uPVC, efficient low E-coated glass, with minimum U-values of 1.2 W/m2k, and safety glass was used in full compliance with building regulations. Seamlessly bringing the new kitchen/living space and garden together, entertaining and living here will be an utter dream for the lucky occupants.

Dual-colour windows and doors provide the best of both worlds

Hoping to achieve a consistent modern flourish throughout the building, colour also played an essential role throughout this project. Carefully taking the properties existing features into consideration, dual-colour frames were chosen. Stylish Anthracite grey frames were used outside to deliver a contemporary, on-trend look, combined with fresh white frames on the inside for a neutral finish. Also known as ‘two-tone’ frames, dual-colour home improvements are becoming increasingly popular with modern and traditional properties alike.
