Pebble Grey Composite Windows Complements Anthracite Grey Doors in Plymouth Refurbishment Project

This Milton Abbot 2 storey detached home has recently been renovated and extended to include composite windows and a single storey glazed extension.


Sat opposite a listed building, within a conservation area, this property is in a sensitive location. Whilst the property itself isn’t listed the owners had to consider how any changes they made to the property would affect the character and appearance of the conservation area.

The Project

The homeowners completely renovated the property, adding a glazed single storey extension to the rear, and a link garage with utility room and storage above.

Keeping the existing local stone, red slate and brown roof tiles with white render to the rear of the property. Whilst modernising with aluminium composite windows and doors, in contrasting colours.  Which was considered acceptable in the conservation area.

Having been recommended Aspect Windows, the homeowners visited the showroom to take a closer look at the composite windows and doors we had on offer.


Timber/aluminium composite windows were chosen to replace the original timber windows.  Choosing integral blinds to offer additional sun and privacy protection. Selecting RAL 7032 Pebble grey for the external and spruce for the wood internally. A tilt and turn, casement windows with concealed locking mechanisms.

RAL 7016 anthracite grey was chosen for the doors to create a contrast, giving the property a modern look.

Timber/aluminium was also chosen for the front door, with obscure glass panes integrated to the right, with leaver handle and letter plate. For the side entrance door, obscure glass was chosen to maximise the light into this area of the home, whilst maintaining privacy.

Our Product Range

"The whole process has been excellent - I really appreciate the patience you've taken on what is a huge expenditure for a passion project, working with total amateurs! You've always taken the time to answer questions, explain options and crucially, make recommendations when nativity/inexperience clouds our judgement. A real skill and something I personally have really appreciated as I feel confident that we now have windows and doors that complement our house, design and style. Without that level of consultative engagement and relationship I'm confident I would have overlooked details and made a substandard decision. Thank you!"

Mrs Trestain, Padstow

"Just a quick note of thanks to the whole team for our fab windows and doors, we are delighted with both the product and also with the whole fitting process. The lads were brilliant (it's not often you get trades in the house who leave it cleaner at the end of the day than when they arrive in the morning!!) and just quietly got on with the job. Thank you again"

Mr & Mrs Leonard, Exeter

"The pocket sliding door and gable look amazing, it’s an impressive bit of kit and it’s a revelation to be able to open the space up! I have to say we’ve been very impressed with all your teams positivity, professionalism and workmanship, from start to finish - so a big thank you…"

Mr Marsh, Exeter

"I would like to thank you for the quality of the service we have received from Aspect Windows and commend you for the care and attention that we have received throughout the process. I am thoroughly pleased with our new windows and would recommend your services to anybody who asks."

Mr & Mrs Miller, Exmouth

"I wanted to just send my thanks and appreciation. We had an install approx. 6 years ago including some bi-fold doors which in recent weeks appeared to have dropped and became very difficult to lock. I called the office on Monday and a lady took my details and quickly called me back suggesting you had an engineer locally the following day. He arrived and was extremely polite and efficient and diagnosed a broken hinge. He went back to the depot collected the replacement part, then returned to Budleigh and completed the repair. We really appreciate the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with the issue and the ease from a customer perspective. "

Mr Ashby, Budleigh Salterton

"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you have provided in the planning, removal & installation of our beautiful new windows and doors. We were completely amazed & delighted at the speed of which the installation took place and the hard work put in by the installation team. They worked very efficiently and communicated with me at ease through the week so I knew their plans with each room for installation. All the windows & door look great and we have already had lots of compliments. "

Mrs Oakes-Ash, Exmouth

"We would like to thank everyone at Aspect Windows for the fantastic service that we have received on our project. From start to finish, you have been so professional and we are totally thrilled with our sliding doors and our side door. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of undergoing a similar project."

Mrs Moores, Templecombe

"We would just like to say how excellent the service has been from Aspect Windows from beginning to end. The salesman could not have been more helpful, we felt completely unhurried and un-pressured. The fitter was also extremely good, he was neat, careful and very respectful of our property as well as being very sociable and polite. Congratulations Aspect Windows on a really good job I wish everything in life could be so straightforward!"

Mr Foster, Exeter
