This oak framed barn style build in Hertfordshire really showcased everything that’s good about Kloeber, not just in terms of the supply & installation but the liaison with the Architectural Designer: our old friend Pete Tonks, the Project Management: PJT Custom Build, the Oak Frame supplier: T.J Crump Oakwrights, the direct fixed glazing specialist: Black Pig and last but not least the homeowners Johnny & Jane.
Long before the project began on site we worked closely with Pete Tonks on the specification of the doors & windows to ensure we were satisfying planning restrictions, the design brief and of course the customers' expectations. Many meetings were had and emails exchanged to discuss specification and detailing with drawings going back and forth from Kloeber to all of the above companies to ensure the best possible outcome for Johnny & Jane.
We carried out two site visits prior to the install to discuss technical details & measure the apertures ensuring everything would fit perfectly. To successfully install aluminium frames directly into Oak our fitting team used adjustable fixings and to seal up and make the installation completely weather tight we used a Passivhaus standard sealing method using expanding insulation tapes & foam which will flex & move with the Oak over time.
The ‘Kustomslide mono’ sliding doors on this job had monster pieces of glass which were delivered directly to site on the day of installation and carefully lifted by hand into place after the frames had been installed. We installed our ‘KL70w’ Aluminium windows in to the timber frame, carefully making sure; the frames were plumb & level, the glass was toe & heeled and the set back would allow for the agreed cladding detail. The job was finished off with a jet black 'Hamburg' style ‘FunkyFront’ door which looked fantastic. The job was completed on time, to the satisfaction of the customers and we hope you’ll agree the end result looks stunning!
Quote from Johnny Jones: Kloeber’s client
“Matt and the Kloeber team provided a first class service with first class products. The attention to detail was matched equally by the quality of their work and speed of installation. It was a pleasure to have them on site and the end result is stunning.”
