Mike Purdie - Front Door
My 18th century cottage has undergone various transformations under different owners, and there is hardly a right angle in the place. Worst of all is the front door which is a virtual parallelogram, which had put me off updating it as its dimensions and shape ruled out any off-the-peg replacement. The existing door was a softwood garden gate that had been hacked about to fit the opening and it leaked water and wind and even leaves blew under it.
RGM was recommended by my builder and from the start it was obvious that Richard had a real feeling for older buildings. Although the house was a mixture of styles and periods, he proposed a design in keeping with the exterior but using hardwood and a high performance construction.
We agreed on a design and he made the door up in his workshop, exactly matching the shape of the existing opening.
Sam Holder had the job of installing it and the door fitted perfectly first time. The old bullseye glass was transferred to the new door and he ensured that the furniture which Richard had helped me choose was centred and level.
The door was left filled, primed and ready for painting, and closes tightly with just a gentle push. Now that it is finished in matt black it looks appropriate for the age of the cottage and almost like an original feature.
Both Richard at RGM and Sam Holder were great to work with throughout the job, involving me at every stage and I am extremely pleased with the result.
"We would like to say thank you to Richard at RGM, who has made us a beautiful five bar gate. We are constantly receiving comments from passers by as to how stunning it looks. It has finished off our dream home perfectly. Thanks again,
Dan, Annie, Abbie, Poppy & Pixie "
We just wanted to write and thank you all for the lovely doors that you recently made for us. The oak doors look wonderful and the barn door is just how we wanted it.
We were very grateful for your knowledge and ideas which helped us to choose the right products. You suggested that we match up the oak doors with the existing doors further along the house, something we hadn't thought to do before and also to omit the handles on the external side of the doors and we are very pleased with the finished appearance. We asked you to produce a heavier version of the existing barn style door and again, we are very pleased with the result. When we close that door there is no mistaking, from the reassuringly secure noise that it makes, that the door is well and truly shut!
We would like to give Sam a mention as he was polite and friendly and carried out the fitting of the doors and the door furniture in a very professional manner.
We would not hesitate to contact you again for any future projects.
