Extensions & Renovations

Windows & Roofs


This property was built in the 1970’s and was purchased from an elderly couple who had lived in their home for over forty years. The new homeowners saw great potential in this large corner plot & planned a huge front to back renovation that included connecting the two existing extensions to create one large open plan space. Their plans also included modernising the home throughout, adding an additional storey to the side extension to accommodate a master bedroom and en suite, as well building a huge external raised patio area to seamlessly connect to the new open-plan kitchen and dining area to the large garden outside.



The inspiration for this project was very much born out of a visit to our flagship Leeds showroom, The Home Space from Express, as the homeowners treated it as a one stop shop, which led them to use several of the Companies that they first saw in our Leeds showroom to transform this home into the inspirational space it is today. The build itself was carried out to the highest standard alongside the several expert companies used.

What we delivered

Express delivered glazing solutions throughout the whole house, all of which was chosen by the homeowners in a very design led approach. The front of the house contains our premium Scenic casement windows boasting slender frames, in our elite colour Mocha, housed with solar powered integral blinds downstairs and manual sliding integral blinds upstairs. The feature entrance is dominated by our Linora front door with adjacent sidelights, which is both strong and secure, and the perfect centrepiece for the front of this modern home and inside within the contemporary hallway also. The flat roof area at the front of the house contains an XP Skyview skylight to maximise natural light into the new gym area. The textured Mocha finish was chosen because the homeowners wanted the front of the house to look completely unique, so a grey RAL colour for the door and windows was deliberately avoided.



The rear elevation of the home contains products in a different colour and finish altogether. The colours within the home are all neutral so the homeowners opted for our gloss finish, elite colour in granite for the doors and windows throughout the rest of the home. Boasting a detailed finish not dissimilar from a granite worktop, the granite colour looks stunning on the huge XP Slide Panoramic doors that combined span almost ten metres across the back of the house. The new bedroom looks like it is floating, sat on a steel corner post that has been expertly cladded with bespoke, insulating pressings. The corner can be completely opened with the XP View bi-folding door and sliding door moving away from the post, creating an al fresco dining area or a clear pathway to the patio furniture outside.

The new extension is dominated by two more feature products. A huge Sky Line roof lantern is the centrepiece of the beautiful new kitchen. The master bedroom contains a floor to ceiling tilt only window, with a shaped gable frame above it, lining through with the pitch of the extensions new roof. The bifold door and Scenic casement windows contain electronically operated Uniblinds, which allow the homeowners to close off the side elevation for privacy from the neighbours. The whole property, particularly the new extension is completely flooded with natural light and masses of glazing that allow the homeowners to enjoy the landscape views in nearly every room of the home.

The five-month transformation of this house is nothing short of remarkable, The homeowners proudly passed on their approval with comments like ‘I can’t believe we live here’ and ‘it looks like a footballer’s house’.
