Case Study: Kent

Julian from Beckenham has kindly written this feature about his SunSeeker Doors experience.

One of the most important factors for us when renovating our house was how to link the house to the garden, so we could make the best use of the outside space in the summer and allow the kids to get in and out of the house easily.

We had previously seen some sliding-folding doors on a barn conversion where we stayed on holiday, we thought they would be ideal when we turned our extension into a kitchen diner.

After some thought and research on the internet, we decided that we wanted to go for an aluminium door which, although they were more expensive at first glance, were much easier to prepare and maintain, and they looked great. We also liked the idea of being able to choose the colour, as we wanted to use greys throughout the house to provide accents.

We approached a number of different companies, and were immediately impressed by SunSeeker Doors' price and communications. I had a number of discussions with Bob at SunSeeker Doors, and he was able to translate my often abstract questions into concrete answers.

Once we had decided to go ahead with SunSeeker Doors, the process moved very smoothly. When surveying the site, the guys worked well with our builder and were in regular contact prior to installation. Even my last minute requests for a change didn't throw a spanner in the works.

The installation took place in no time and, whilst the house project isn't quite finished, the doors look great and are a fantastic addition to our home. They are really practical, allowing us to pop in and out of the garden with the traffic door, and are great when they are fully open, giving us the maximum opening to the garden whilst using the minimum of space.

I would certainly recommend SunSeeker Doors to anyone, and am looking for any excuse to use them again!
