A beautiful, traditional stable door

The Crouchs lived in an old house in Giltbrook, Nottingham. As such, they wanted a door that matched the traditional character of their home. After meeting us at our showroom, we advised them that there was no design better for their project than the stable door. Originally used for keeping horses in their stables while still allowing air to circulate, they have two separate sections. The top half can be opened while the bottom half remains closed. This also makes them ideal for families with pets or small children.

Stable doors also have a range of wonderful design options. Giving your home a unique sense of character, they can dramatically increase a property's kerb appeal. The Crouchs chose an incredibly sleek and stylish Painswick Grey stable door, creating a classic, timeless effect that stayed in keeping with modern fashion.

Solidor composite door for a Nottingham home

Of course, the Crouchs didn't just want a door that looked nice. They wanted it to perform and to last them a long time. That's why we suggested that they go for a Solidor composite door, one of the strongest doors on the market. As well as the Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin of a standard composite door, Solidor doors have a real timber insulating core. This makes them extremely resistant to force and heat loss.

The rates of thermal transmission they achieve as so low, they will keep the Crouch home warm for years to come. The Nottingham family can also rest assured that their home is more secure than ever.

The Crouch family review:

After we finished installing their beautiful new door, here's what the Crouch family had to say about our service:

"I couldn’t be happier with both the product and the service I received. Communication was good from start (with Liz) to finish and I felt they were a very honest and trustworthy company - you definitely got the feeling from dealing with them that they treated you as an individual rather than just another order.

On the day of the fitting, I received a call to say they were on their way, which I appreciated, and I have to say that I was so grateful for Ant and Dan’s professionalism throughout. They were polite and respectful of my home, and gave really good, clear instructions on how to use and care for the door. I knew the job would not be straightforward as our house is very old but rather than finish it off quickly, I felt they chose to do the right thing for me as the customer and returned the following day to finish off the job with the correct materials.

I don’t think some companies would have gone this extra mile. In fact, their attention to detail was second to none and a joy to witness - thank you! A couple of weeks on and we absolutely love our new door - it’s so easy to clean and looks so beautiful. Thanks so much for providing such an excellent service."
