Truglaze transforms derelict orphanage with Solidor

March 27th 2017

A derelict building in Hampshire has been transformed by 14 stunning anthracite grey Solidor composite doors. The building, which used to be an orphanage, has been developed into fourteen separate homes and given a new lease of life with beautifully secure front doors.

In this development, a contemporary design and colour were chosen to enhance traditional features and the beauty of the bricks, giving the whole building a high-end feel.

Dave Gaunt, Director of Truglaze, the company that installed the doors says: “Solidor works perfectly in a high end development like this. The doors complete the look, and add to the quality feel of the properties. We find homeowners can feel the quality and security when they open a Solidor, and with their stunning looks, they add a lot to new developments. That’s why we don’t sell anything else.”

Solidor CEO Gareth Mobley says: “We make doors that homeowners fall in love with. Homeowners demand the best security but they won’t fall in love with security; they will fall in love with the way Solidor transforms the look of their home.

“This development is absolutely stunning,” Gareth adds. “It shows how important the right style and colour is. In this case, the anthracite grey and bold design add incredible kerb appeal, giving the property real wow-factor.”
