The new build market is fast expanding, and it’s a great sector to be a part of right now.
It’s hard to enter an area of Derby and Derbyshire where there aren’t new build projects currently underway or in the pipeline. In fact, it has just been announced that 1,000 new homes are to be built between Chellaston and Alvaston.
This is great news for Derby fitters and installers, as it brings lots more opportunities to secure some fantastic work.
Here are the best products we recommend for tapping into the new build market.
Composite doors for new build projects
Composite doors are the entrance doors of choice for new build projects. This is thanks to the beautiful style they offer, as well as high performance benefits. Homeowners expect their new property to include a composite door because of these reasons.
In most new build developments, the kerb appeal of the properties is of utmost importance. The houses need to stand out on the street and catch the attention of prospective homeowners, all the while pleasing the existing residents of the area.
That’s why composite doors are the top choice – and our composite doors are available in both traditional and contemporary styles.
Many developments in Derbyshire require cottage doors as a way to strike the perfect balance between old and new style. Choose a classic design, which when matched with the wood-grain effect composite doors offer, perfectly replicates a timber door. We’ve found that Cream or Chartwell Green doors work well for this.
For modern, cutting-edge new build developments, modern style composite doors are the best choice. Anthracite Grey doors with long glazed panels and pull bar handles are the most popular for achieving this look.
Composite doors from Frame Fast are made with security in mind, with multi-point locking as standard and PAS 24 accreditation in mind. Security is also enhanced by the door’s rigid polymer subframe and high impact resistant GRP skin.
When homeowners are buying a new build property, they want to make sure they’re investing in a home that will stand the test of time. Composite doors from Frame Fast will remain looking and performing as good as new for years to come. The durable GRP skin means the doors will keep their shape and finish and won’t rot, while the weather seals keep the cold and rain out. Not to mention, the high density insulated core offers better thermal performance to keep properties insulated and improve energy efficiency.
PVCU windows for new build projects
PVCu windows are the top choice for new build developments for their high quality and big choice of design options.
For large scale new build developments looking for classic style, standard white PVCu windows are a popular choice. Our PVCu windows are available in casement, bay & bow, sliding sash and tilt & turn styles.
We know that new build projects have houses that differ in sizes, which is why it’s best to be able to offer a variety of window solutions – such as casement windows for standard properties, tilt & turn and sliding sash windows for those with limited space outside, and bay & bow windows for larger houses.
We’ve seen a rise in the popularity of new build developments that offer traditional, timeless style with 21st century benefits. This is achieved using heritage windows, such as flush sash frames or Georgian bars.
Our Modus flush sash timber alternative windows are ideal for this, as they offer the look and feel of real wood. Modus S from Frame Fast go the extra mile as they feature a mechanically welded external joint for a truly authentic timber replica.
Choose from a selection of woodgrain colours, including Light Oak, Irish Oak and Rosewood, as well as striking shades like Black Ash and Grey.
Whether you choose to install classic PVCu windows or flush sash PVCu windows in your new build project, you can be certain that the windows will last, and won’t rot, warp or fade, allowing each property to stay looking as good as new for years to come.
A-rated energy efficiency can also be achieved with low U-values and expertly crafted double or triple glazing, and security is covered with revolutionary locking systems and strong frames.
Widespan doors for new build projects
Today, no new home is complete without a set of widespan doors. Every homeowner wants to be able to add light, make the most of their space and lead out onto the garden in stunning style.
For developers looking to create wide openings to the outdoors, our aluminium bifold doors work best. The concertina style folding means that they reveal a clear connection to the garden, with no posts or frames in the way.
If the new build properties call for light to be flooded in, our aluminium sliding doors offer panoramic glazing through which light can flood through. This is also fantastic if the new build developments feature luscious gardens, as the views can be enjoyed through the sliding doors all year round – even when they’re closed.
Aluminium widespan doors look stunning in Anthracite Grey, but we can offer them in any RAL colour. The frames are robust, inherently strong, secure and energy efficient, offering more glass along with more performance benefits.
It’s also worth mentioning that PVCu French doors remain a classic choice for providing a chic way to open homes up to the garden, while offering low maintenance and durability.
