Modern refurbishment with Black Millwork

An impressive detached property in Berkshire has undergone an extensive refurbishment and extension to create generously proportioned modern family home using Andersen windows and doors supplied by Black Millwork.

The three-bedroom 1960s property has been completely transformed into a contemporary four-bedroom home. The renovation and extension has seen the total square footage increase and included the remodelling of the exterior envelope and expansion of many of the window and door openings.

The owners of the property commented: “The entire project took approximately 10 months to complete and the result is amazing, you wouldn’t recognise the house now that it is complete. Central to the project has been the fenestration choice, not only were we after windows and doors that matched the modern style we wanted but we needed them to perform efficiently too – particularly because we were increasing the amount of glazing to maximise the amount of natural light coming in to the property.”

Installed at the property were 37 Andersen 400-series casement windows finished in white Perma-Shield and two sets of Andersen sliding doors finished in black Perma-Shield, both of which never need to be repainted. Their design and practicality are matched by impressive thermal energy efficiency ratings as well, achieving a U-value of 1.4 W/m2K.

The owners added: “Black Millwork had been recommended by a friend and we found them really easy to work with. Bob Heller, the National Sales Manager, was always happy to come to site and answer our questions and helped us right from the start of the specification process. We knew that we wanted timber framed units but what we really liked about the Andersen products were their slim frames, their minimal maintenance requirements and the fact that they came in on budget.”

Also installed at the property was a unique entrance door with full-length side glazing units. Benefitting from a comprehensive 10-year warranty, the door achieves a U-value of 1.1 W/m2K.

The owners continued: “We are particularly proud of the main entrance door as, along with the new built-out porch, it creates a real focal point for the front of the house. The symmetry of the property either side of the door draws your eye in to the porch and then the quality and detail of the door really stands out. We can’t wait to add some accent lighting and planting to this area to make it even more eye-catching!

“The windows and doors have had a dramatic affect on the external appearance of the house and look very modern and high-end, just what we wanted. There is no question that the project has been a challenge but the reward makes it all worthwhile and we cannot wait to move in. Having suppliers that you can trust and that are willing to go the extra mile makes all the difference.”
