… An update on the fitting of our new backdoor
Before the door was fitted we discussed in length our exact requirements with the person who came to measure and assess the fitting; he knew exactly what we wanted. He suggested that a blank panel was fitted so that exact measurement could be taken when the door was in place. When the top glass panel arrived it was not at all what we wanted or asked for,and was something that we could not live with.
The door should have had Georgian bars to match the windows. The new glass panel had huge squares at the bottom with smaller ones at the top. It seems to have been a miscommunication (and a badly drawn diagram by the fitter) between Mr C and the fitter who came to measure the window. Apparently the glassmaker had queried the design when asked to make the unit! The best laid plans… Now we await a new glass panel at additional expenditure!!
The new glass panel is now fitted and looks much better than the first panel they provided us with. Now we need to get them to come back and fix the beading that the workman damaged whilst fitting the new glass pane. Mr C thought it rather odd that the workman rushed off rather quickly after he had finished the work. On closer inspection he realised why!!
The whole installation has been a shambles from start to finish. When the workman came to fit the first pane of glass he had to get them to sort out the plastic panel by the side of the door which had been left in a buckled up state because the piece of plastic was too long!
When the door is eventually sorted to our satisfaction we will re-introduce the blinds in the door panel.
