A home for his family

Tags:   |   Added:

When an experienced builder sets out to make a home for members of his own family, you can be sure he will want everything to be just right.

And when he chooses a combination of PVC-U windows alongside solid oak, it goes without saying that the PVC-U had to be the very best in both looks and performance.

“I’ve been in the business for 40 years but this was the first time I have actually built a house from scratch,” said Bridgenorth-based Brian Waterfield, who built the detached home for his grandson and family.

“I’d never come across Residence 9 before, but once we found it we knew it was exactly what we needed.  It has just the looks and features we had in mind, enabling us to complete the build to a really high specification.”

Brian and family chose R9 casements in Clotted Cream for most of the windows, including French style for upstairs. A Solidor Stable door and VEKA frame in Chartwell Green were chosen for the back door, all from Glazerite. In complete contrast a front bay, the front door, porch and roofline were all made in solid oak.

He concluded: “Glazerite were always on hand with advice throughout the project and it made it all the simpler that we could get our first choice of PVC-U windows and composite door and frame all from the same source.”

Jason Thompson, Director of The Glazerite UK Group Ltd, added: “Residence, VEKA and Solidor are just a part of the wide range of products we offer, and a project such as this shows very clearly how installers can benefit from such a variety of choices.

“These are all highly acclaimed systems in their own right. At Glazerite, we are very proud to be among very few fabricators that can offer seven systems – one trusted source, one delivery, one payment point, it couldn’t be easier.”

Recent Case Studies

R9 just the job for Wiltshire home
Wiltshire-based SJ Window Installations has recently completed a domestic project using Residence 9 windows and French doors from leading fabricator, the Glazerite UK Group Ltd.  Specifying Clotted Cream on the exterior combined with a White Ash interior, the installation matched an existing R9 window fitted in a previous extension on the property, which is situated in the Wiltshire village of Little Somerford.  A total of nine windows and a pair of French doors were installed over five days by Simon Jordan, owner of SJ Window Installations, who was carrying out his first ever Residence Collection project. He says:  “This was the first time I’ve installed Residence 9 though I’ve used the Halo FlushSash in a number of properties of late. Both are great systems and alongside the R7 - which I also have access to via Glazerite - I have a number of flush sash solutions for customers, whatever their needs or budget.” Simon adds:  “The marketing done by Residence Collection in support of both R9 and R7 is impressive, and this particular customer found me via the installer search on their website, which is fantastic.  “By working with Glazerite, I also have access to their own technical and marketing support which has been invaluable for my business. I’m able to call on them at any time, whether that’s to double check measurements for a complex project or the design and build of my website.” Giovanni Sangiovanni of Glazerite’s Southwest division says: “SJ Window Installations is a great example of an installer who is taking advantage of the marketing available from the Residence Collection. Having a profile on their online installer search facility results in great leads. Simon is passionate about quality and R9 is a premium product that has helped him to deliver a stunning installation.”  This year SJ Window Installations is celebrating 21 years in business. The installer works across the Wiltshire towns of Marlborough, Trowbridge and beyond, fitting a range of uPVC windows, doors and conservatories sourced from Glazerite.

Offices housing employees of the industrial manufacturer, Siemens, have undergone a huge facelift thanks to the Glazerite UK Group Ltd and their customer, D&M Windows Ltd.  Oldham's D&M Windows was chosen by contractors Brown & Bancroft to carry out the transformation of the four storey building in Congleton, Cheshire, because of their extensive experience in commercial and domestic installations.
