ALUMINIUM Installer leaps ahead with REAL Aluminium » » A SHREWD INSTALLER has more than doubled the rate of aluminium installations it completes after leaping ahead with REAL Aluminium. The Conservatory and Window Company has taken advantage of REAL Aluminium’s comprehensive aluminium package and upped turnover by at least 20% in less than two years. Aluminium now accounts for around 40% of the Bristol- based installer’s work. The Conservatory and Window Company predominantly offered PVCu products and decided to expand by introducing aluminum into its range to make the most of growing demand. Since working with REAL Aluminium, the firm has gained access to a wealth of fenestration products within the range, including windows, bi-folding doors, sliding doors, French doors, residential doors, flat rooflights and lantern roofs. Designed to make sourcing aluminium easy, REAL Aluminium provides a comprehensive showroom and award-winning sales and marketing support package to help installers to leap into aluminium and begin selling the most extensive range aluminium windows, doors and roofs available from a single supplier. All REAL Aluminium installers are invited to attend a unique, tailored REAL customer experience day, which has been proven to boost confidence and rapidly increase the number of aluminium sales for installers.

Door colours are often bolder, stronger colours whilst windows follow the more pastel or grey shades. Some of our customers have uniform colours for all their doors and windows, whilst others opt for more variety.
