It’s great to see so many homeowners throughout South Yorkshire understanding the value of upgrading their windows and doors. This time we were in Doncaster, installing our first Kubu smart lock enhanced composite doors.

Sprotbrough homeowner joins the Smart home revolution

Looking to completely overhaul their property and bring it into the 21st Century in style, after visiting our Sheffield based showroom in Handsworth, this client chose 13 made-to-measure grey on white uPVC casement windows, a high-performance uPVC door and 2 Kubu enhanced composite doors.

Before & after:

Kubu couldn’t be easier to set up, taking under 15 minutes!

Never having to worry whether they’ve left their front or back door unlocked again, amongst its many exciting features, the Kubu smart lock also offers:

  • A cutting-edge smartphone app
  • The UK’s largest hooks and centre deadbolt (25mm)
  • PAS 24 security performance testing
  • Amazon Alexa integration

Swiftly fitted by our installation experts, this customer was particularly impressed with the Kubu 10 year security and mechanical guarantee, providing a refund of up to £1,000 off their insurance excess if broken into, should a lock component fail. Finished off with Ultion Brisant cylinder locks, security will never be an issue for these homeowners again.

On-trend Anthracite Grey windows and doors in Doncaster

Before & after:

Before and after the installation of anthracite grey windows

These timber windows had definitely seen better days, so we couldn’t wait to get our hands on them! Paying close attention to retaining the original character of the property, the arch windows remain impressive with a modern twist. Removing the Georgian style bars and replacing them with slim, modern frames and double glazing has transformed this tired window into a real feature that really lights up the hallway space.

Why are grey windows and doors so popular?

The days of plain white window frames are far behind us, as homeowners throughout Britain opt for darker shades for their new windows and doors. But why is this? Well, as more and more homeowners gain inspiration from programs like ‘Grand Designs’, turning to high-end products such as aluminium windows, Anthracite Grey (or RAL 7016) has become a firm favourite as the ‘go-to’ aluminium frame colour. Coupled with the real advances in colour technologies for uPVC windows and doors in recent years, homeowners from all walks of life are realising they can create a premium look at a much more manageable price.

New door

Neutral yet versatile, Anthracite Grey (and many other shades of grey) also pair well with black and white colour schemes and complement both classic and contemporary properties alike. It is stylish but understated, enhancing the property but never detracting from its original features.

For further inspiration, take a look at these recent South Yorkshire case studies that feature alluring Anthracite Grey windows and doors:

Windows & Doors

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
