diysos pictureWorkington-based The Window Outlet was called in to help a local Wigton family for the BBC One home improvement programme DIY SOS, with Nick Knowles recently.

The old terraced property in Abbeytown was virtually uninhabitable, having reached temperatures of -19C last year and in need of desperate help.

After seeing an advertisement in their local Travis Perkins for local businesses, The Window Outlet applied for the challenge to help give the house a complete overhaul, as Director Graeme Pritt explains: “The BBC contacted us following our application and took up our offer of installing a brand new 3-pane New Wave Door.

“The installation was carried out by myself and two of The Window Outlet’s fitters, and took half a day. We then stayed at the house for the remainder of the day to help out the builders and other fitters in whichever way we could.”

Similar to bi-folding doors, New Wave Doors are a revolutionary new way of fabricating, transporting and installing multi pane patio doors, and are currently only available in VEKA profile. Thanks to its ground-breaking design and clever engineering, it is unlike any other sliding doors on the market, and stands apart from the crowd for its elegance and ease of use.

The installation was filmed and the company will appear on BBC DIY SOS – The Big Build programme, which is due to be aired early next year. The popular programme assists homeowners who urgently need help in repairing their homes.
