This job took place in Eiling, Southampton. The main task was the replacement of an existing French door set. As the clients house was rendered, they wanted to retain their existing frame to avoid damage to the externals of the house.
The client chose to use European Oak which is a high quality hardwood. To fit in with the style of the house we used a traditional technique called gunstock shoulder detailing which tapers the shoulder of the door to give you maximum glass usage. This is often used for listed buildings as you normally have to match the existing style. The gunstock shoulder style is used to give optimized viewing and allows natural light to flow through.
The solid oak timber door set is fully furnished in an Osmo UV protection oil that has certain added ingredients that help prevent algae, fungal decay and also stops the greying process caused by sunlight. We use a coat on coat system for this product to make sure the joinery is completely sealed before the fitting process.
The door has traditional Georgian bars which mean the glass is set inside a sealed unit. All the door furniture consisted of brass ironmongery resulting in a stylish and reliant option that’s built to last. All of our ironmongery is specifically chosen to suit the customers requirements.
We installed the door on a supply and fit basis which meant we were on hand to discuss any changes the client wished throughout the project.
