Have you ever wondered how glass can make a difference to your home? Surrey and West London based glass installers, P&P Glass, share innovative ways you can use glass to transform your living space…
When thinking of glass in the home, the first thing that probably comes to mind is windows – but did you ever consider how much choice you have when choosing the perfect fit?
uPVC – Over the last few years, uPVC has drastically improved, evolving into one of the most cost-effective yet aesthetically pleasing window materials around. These window frames are virtually maintenance free – they won’t rot, rust, peel or flake, and you’ll never have to worry about having to repaint them. From practical white uPVC casement windows to charming woodgrain sliding sash windows, our uPVC window range can accommodate an array of building styles.
Aluminium – Aluminium has always been the go-to window material within commercial settings, but in recent years, it has experienced a notable revival in private homes, thanks to popular TV shows like Grand Designs. Ideal for contemporary projects, this material adds a sleek and stylish touch like no other. From functional casement windows to specialist slimline windows, aluminium accommodates impressive expanses of glass while retaining optimum amounts of energy and security.
Timber – A British building staple since the 1500s, glazed wooden windows remain a firm favourite among homeowners looking for classic aesthetics fused with 21st Century benefits. From typical timber casement windows to more modern timber sliding sash windows, our timber window replacement range compliments classic and contemporary homes alike.
Composite – It’s basic human nature to want our homes to be cosy and comfortable. Combining the best qualities of aluminium and timber, composite windows provide exceptional levels of security and insulation to any property, thanks to their uniquely bonded aluminium and timber composite contours.
If you want to maximise light in your home, these are the way to go. Our range of Sunflex bifold doors provides homes and businesses with unique contemporary aesthetics that no other aluminium sliding door system can live up to. The slimline doors have a square-edged profile, combined with stunning vertical sightlines of only 115mm and a frame depth of just 55mm, maximising views and light entering your home. We also offer timber bifold doors, offering unique weather resistance certification, combined with thermally efficient engineered timber, providing you with peace of mind that your new doors will be long-lasting.
- Patio doors
Aluminium sliding patio doors make the perfect accompaniment to homes and businesses that require a user-friendly door system that floods spaces with huge amounts of light, while enhancing sweeping views. Inherently strong, and highly resistant to corrosion and expansion or contraction, their impressive low frame to glass ratio creates alluring architectural masterpieces with ease. Our Sunflex sliding patio doors are designed not only to have impressive performance, but also to look their part as well. Available in any RAL colour, you can have popular choices like black patio doors or grey sliding patio doors – or a more unique option!
Roof lanterns – These features allow extra natural light into your home, reduce energy costs, and are built to last, meaning they’re also environmentally friendly. At P&P Glass, our range of slimline aluminium roof lanterns fuse the modern advantages of thermally broken aluminium with the hand-crafted look of timber. Featuring slim spas and ridge sections and charming sculpted bosses, your guests will marvel at your new roof lantern’s attention to detail.
Roof lights – Efficiently maintaining interior insulation, these features remain energy efficient while allowing in natural light. Available as fixed, sliding hinged or modern walk on roof light installations, our unique flat glass roof lights are ideal for flat roofs. Pitched at the industry standard of 5 degrees, you can rest assured that rainwater will drain off correctly while exterior pooling and unsightly watermarks are kept to the absolute minimum.
Glass balustrades are booming in popularity, taking something practical such as preventing accidents, and turning it into something sleek and stylish. They can be totally transparent, letting you enjoy uninterrupted views where there might previously have been a solid barrier. You can also maintain privacy with textured or frosted glass. At P&P, we’re also able to offer a ‘frameless’ glass balustrade, which gives the appearance that the glass is floating on the building with no visible framework or fixing.
- Glass doors and partitions
The ultimate in clean, uninterrupted sightlines, frameless glass doors and screens provide a sleek and contemporary solution for separating spaces. They’re made of 8-12mm toughened safety glass, and are ideal for internal use, or for areas like porches where insulation isn’t a priority. They can be made bespoke for your unique space, meaning your home will stand out from others. As well as the glass partition itself, we’re also able to offer a wide range of handles, hinges, and other hardware, all available in a variety of finishes.
- Bespoke glass and mirrors
Mirrors are one common glass product we’re all very familiar with – but have you ever considered having one specially made to your exact specifications? At P&P, we can make mirrors that are patterned or coloured. There are many options available, including infused acid etched, or tinted alternatives. Our antique mirror range authentically reproduces the period look, offering a unique appearance with many options of designs and colours.
