Balcony gets thumbs up for barn conversion

Specialist joinery company Timberland Windows, Doors and Conservatories recently installed five Juliette Balconies from Balcony Systems Ltd for a recent barn conversion near Launceston in Cornwall. The Juliette balconies were installed on windows and French doors on the first floor of the barn, and mainly for the bedrooms. Each balcony varied in width from 1.2 metres wide to 2.8 metres wide.

Balcony’s Juliettes were chosen to give the stone barn a modern, clean look. The property is located in a valley close to a river. With balconies in the bedrooms the windows or French doors could be opened to maximise light in the day, and at night they could be opened to hear the animals and river flowing.

Kelvin Gay, Managing Director of Timberland says: “Balcony was excellent throughout this project. I looked at their website before contacting them directly and they were very helpful and friendly. Balcony sent me information about the products together with samples so I could agree the colour and finish with the developer. I then went back to Balcony with the sizes I needed and they promptly sent me a quote which meant I could respond to the developer quickly.

“My main concern was purchasing the products online but there were no problems at all. Everything was delivered on time and as requested. Technical support was also offered. Initially the quote was for two balconies, but the developer was so happy with the end result, that we were awarded the work for the other three,” ends Kelvin.
