If your home is starting to look old and tired, it might cost a lot less to modernise it than you think. Instead of expensive home renovations, you can work wonders on your home just by installing custom built doors and windows from Fremantle Door & Window Company.
If you look at a modern design, it usually starts with the doors and windows. Most builders fit out homes with aluminium windows. Your back door or patio door may be an aluminium sliding door. Your front entry door is probably a small laminate door which is timber on the outside but hollow on the inside.
These doors and windows are OK, but they tend to make a home look average. Once the home begins to age, the original windows tend to look drab. They don’t really let a lot of light in and aren’t made for maximum ventilation. In addition, aluminium doors and windows let a lot of heat and cold in and out of your home. So does the hollow front door. As they age, the aluminium can begin to warp, letting even more air in.
Custom Built Doors and Windows to the Rescue
If you want to turn your tired old home into one you love without spending an arm and a leg to do it, custom built doors and windows are the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way to do it. When you look at a modern design, walls are just walls. It’s the doors and the windows that make all the difference in the design of any home and how people perceive it.
We make all of our custom built doors and windows out of local, sustainably-grown timber and special, weatherproof glass that is manufactured for us right here in WA. Timber is one of the most versatile building materials we have. It can be painted, stained or finished with a clear coat to let its natural beauty shine through.
Timber can be used for any size frame or door. It is easily “worked”; this makes minor repairs easy. If you damage an aluminium frame, you have to buy a new one. If you damage a timber frame, all you usually have to replace is one board. Sometimes damage to a timber frame can be patched and restored to full appearance and function.
The Design Ideas are Endless
Custom built doors and windows provide you with seemingly endless design options. We can make solid timber entry doors, pivot doors, bifold doors, French doors and sliding doors. We can also make bifold windows, sliding windows, Aneeta windows, servery windows, luff windows, awning windows and casement windows.
This combination of so many doors and windows ensure that you can have whatever design you want for your home without paying for a full home renovation or buying a new home. The wide selection also opens you up to some exciting design possibilities that will make your friends and neighbours envious of your “new home.”
Open Spaces, Smiling Faces
We always encourage our clients to “open up” their homes by letting a lot of sunlight in and creating open spaces on the interior. We have helped many of our clients convert to a modified open floor plan in which the kitchen, dining room, living room and family room are all one big room separated with bifold doors.
The bifold doors can be opened all the way to create an open space or closed to create more rooms. Even when they are closed, they let a lot of light shine through, preserving the perception of more open space and a larger home.
Another great “look”: bifold doors opening outside into an alfresco living area. If the alfresco area or patio is close enough to the kitchen, you can make entertaining easy by having us install servery windows in your kitchen. They have large ledges that allow you to pass food through the window to your alfresco living area.
