Gorgeous timber clad annexe built incorporating thermally efficient windows and doors

This gorgeous annexe was built in the grounds of Jason’s home for his parents.  The uninterrupted views surrounding it deserved to be clearly seen.  Jason chose The Burgess Group as he shared several mutual friends with Edward (owner of The Burgess Group).

The major draw to The Burgess Group was the undeniable passion Edward portrayed for the products.  Jason is someone who will not buy ‘throw away’ items, so the fact these windows and doors are long lasting and of exceptional quality was the main attraction.

Jason really enjoyed the opportunity of being guided through the options, considering appropriate designs and colour choices to harmoniously fit in with the building and surroundings; an element that can often be rushed or overlooked elsewhere.

With the annexe being a new build, the family were no strangers to different trades being on site, it was noted that the installation team were by far “the most meticulous of all the trades”.

Adding to that, his twin brother was so impressed by how solid the doors felt that he chose The Burgess Group for two timber doors for his home.

To really maximise the picturesque views, they opted for a slim sightline Sunflex sliding door. “When you slide it back it just glides, it’s substantial in build but feels so smooth and effortless to use.”  Jason added he’s no stranger to sliding doors when in other people’s homes and the difference in operation is clear to see.  “As a family we’ve had many a discussion about how effective and efficient the door is.  Keeping heat in but also, the glass never overheating, it’s incredible engineering.” Jason had considered using a local joiner for some windows to be made, but in the end, he felt they just weren’t engaged, couldn’t be clear on how long the products would last and didn’t offer the substantial guarantees we offer. 

“The fact that there’s no hiding, that Edward is so present and drops in on customer’s years later, that shows his confidence in what he’s selling, I see it on social media and that fills me with reassurance.” So, when asking Jason if he’d recommend The Burgess Group, he was quick to answer that he would use us again and again and had “zero regrets, something he said doesn’t happen often these days.”
