Stone Grey Aluminium Sliding Doors and Gable Windows in Topsham House Rebuild Project


Originally built at the turn of the century as a captain’s house. The house had been in the family for a good number of years, however was in need of renovating in order to fit the second generation family needs. Rather than trying to re-work the existing building, the homeowners decided to knock it down and start again. Having grown up in the house, there was a lot of pressure for the homeowners to get the build right.

The Project

Working closely with the conservation officer as the house is located in a conservation area, the existing house was demolished and rebuilt.

The replacement house is still very traditional in style, but now also features large contemporary glazed elements through the use of sliding doors.

The outside of the property is finished in a mixture of red stone and cream render. The red stone is continued out into the garden and the garage/pool house, tying it all together.


4 sets of sliding doors have been installed throughout the property. The kitchen/dining area features a large 6 metre wide triple track sliding door; overlooking the garden and the river and woods beyond. The triple tracks allow all three of the door panes to open. Giving the homeowners flexibility in terms of which panes they have open and in what direction they open the doors. Either side of the sliding doors are large fixed windows, creating a contemporary extension look. To the side of one of these fixed panes, is 4 small opening windows. Not only does this allow the family to open the windows for ventilation, it also creates a stunning feature.

Aluminium pressings, in the same colour as the doors and windows have been added to cover the steel corner posts, either end of the sliding doors. Helping to complete the look.

A matching sliding door set up sits on the opposite side of the house overlooking the swimming pool and straight out onto the patio area.

Two sets of smaller duo track sliding doors have been installed around a corner in the living room.

A 6.5 metre wide gable frame windows has been installed into the garage/pool house, creating a fantastic feature whilst flooding the space with light.

RAL 7030 Matt, stone grey, was chosen for the windows and doors. All pre-anodised to protect the frames from the nearby harsh marine environment.

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

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

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!"
