Front Door Replacement, Headington

Our client, Ms Briggs, wanted a new front door with arched sidelights to create more space and light. She also wanted guidance through the planning and building control process.
Arched windows require extreme precision throughout the process, including: measuring, manufacturing and installing. In Ms Briggs’ case, there was an added complication, as there was a crack in the wall around the front door. We helped to arrange for a structural engineer to come and check the crack, to ensure that it wouldn’t become a problem once the new door was installed.
The door itself was made from engineered oak and engineered pine, and the arched sidelights were made to our measurements in our own workshops.
The end result worked really well, with the arched sidelights becoming a real feature of the front of this home.
