This property in Selsey, Chichester, West Sussex was lacking the right look from the u-pvc door that existed.
The owner of the property was after a more traditional look that would suit the house better. After a few discussions and looking through various catalogues and magazines for inspiration, both M.J Carpentry & Joinery and the customer came up with what you can see in the pictures above.
The new door frame was made by M.J Carpentry & Joinery and the 6- panelled door was brought from their suppliers as the customer liked the look of this door and it was also purchased at a reasonable price. Once the frame and door were ready to be fitted, the ironmongery was purchased by the owner, then the works could commence:
- The old u-pvc door and frame was carefully removed and recycled.
- All new timber being fitted was knotted and primed with wood primer paint, then once all was fitted the decorator could apply the final coats of paint.
- Once the opening was carefully cleaned and inspected to make sure there’s no problems, the new frame was fitted.
- Once the frame was fixed securely, any gaps around the frame were filled with expanding foam and then covered with neat timber infills both inside and out.
- Now that the frame was ready, the door could be carefully planed and fitted including fitting all the ironmongery that the owner had purchased.
- The glass above the door (known as the top light) was then fitted.
- Once the works were complete, the owner kindly asked if M.J Carpentry & Joinery could fit the large canopy above the door and the name plaque beside the door as they had all the tools to achieve this.
- The owner was happy for final pictures to be taken once all decorating was complete and the front wall repair were done.
