We’re delighted that our products and installations have been featured on various TV programmes over the years including Grand Designs, ITV’s Love Your Garden, BBC’s DIY SOS and Channel 5’s I own Britain’s Best Home, as well as several Channel 4 property programmes.
Take a look at a few of our favourites:
Back in 2009 we were involved in a highly contemporary new build project in Lake Windermere that was going to be shown on channel 4’s Grand Designs. The project included bespoke and unique Atriums, bi-folding doors, windows, specialised glazing and coloured glass. When Grand designs revisited the project once it was finished, we decided to do the same. Here we catch up with the owner Robert Gaukroger who explains why he chose Express Bi-folding Doors for the project.
This amazing project was featured on Channel Four in September 2019 & the national press quickly hailed it as one of the most dramatic and impressive grand designs projects ever!
This unique home is dominated by our products all installed within an exceptional house located on the exposed cliffs in Galloway, Scotland. You can explore this impressive case study in full via the thumbnail below or by clicking here.
Another notable appearance on Grand Designs aired in October 2018. Twins Nik & John Daughtry used our bespoke products throughout their two homes as part of their ambitious plans to build two steel stilted homes on the site of an old industrial corn mill in Sheffield. The award winning project ranks in the top 50 Grand Designs episodes of all time & was the first time two neighbouring properties were featured on the same episode.
George Clark, respected architect and TV presenter from Channel 4’s Restoration Man and The Home Show, tells us how after working with Express for over four years, he will not go anywhere else for bi-fold doors, patio doors etc. He loves the range and quality of products, the speed of manufacture and the pace of installation. Over the years, our installations have been featured on Channel 4’s The Home Show, Amazing Spaces, Restoration Man, Old House New Home & Ugly House to Lovely House in projects all over the UK including Brighton, London, Surrey, the Wirral, Cumbria, Birmingham & York.
Express have been involved with numerous property transformations for both of these TV programmes, including two stunning 2018 projects. Summer 2019 saw two more projects featured on Channel Four with our crittall style bifolds, roof & windows leading to a glowing review from the owners of the Merseyside property
‘The project has been a huge success both from our point of view, but also in the eyes of George and the whole of the production team. Everyone has been hugely impressed with the quality and finish of everything we built and used and you can tell from the enthusiasm of George in his summing up on how ours was a very special result and how it shone out.
We cannot thank all of the Express team enough for everything you did to help us achieve the stunning result. It is not only the quality of your product, installation and finish but the attention to detail of your whole team making sure that everything went flawlessly according to plan.
In October 2019 we returned to Channel Four with the fourth appearance on the channel in as any months. The first episode of the returning George Clarke’s Old House new Home included a project in Ackworth, West Yorkshire, which benefitted from a huge triple track, three panel sliding door.
Take a look through the images below, which showcases our broad scale of work that has contributed to five very different projects that have all been very popular features on George Clarke’s property development programmes:
The popular television programme, in which property supremo Sarah Beeny helps homeowners turn their most modest properties into sensational homes by extending, converting or drilling down, returned for its second series in August 2013. We featured on the programme several times and even welcomed Sarah into our Redhill showroom for filming part of the second series. One such episode featured our clients, builder Greg Pritchard and his wife Jo, who completely transformed their Bracknell property and were happy to give their feedback from their initial visit to our Redhill showroom right through to the completion of the project.
Dominic Littlewood is a UK TV Presenter from Channel 5’s Cowboy Builders and BBC1’s Don’t Get Done Get Dom. He has used products and services from Express on numerous occasions, both for his own projects and television projects. We are proud to have this recommendation from a man who really knows what he is talking about when it comes to quality of products and exceptional service.
