conservatories Spoilt for Choice »»All colour options for Synseal’s Global conservatory roofs and Global Summer hybrid orangeries are now available directly from stock, to reduce lead times for these popular aluminium and PVCu glazed roofing products which are supplied as made to measure kits to thousands of industry installers through Synseal’s extensive network of fabricator partners. In addition to White, the stock colour range now includes Anthracite Grey, Black/Brown, Chartwell Green, Cream, Golden Oak and Cherrywood. “While traditional White is clearly the favourite finish for all our footprint styles of conservatories and orangeries, the continued surge in demand for alternative contemporary colour options is only going to increase as more and more consumers look for something a bit different” comments Synseal’s Head of Marketing Mark Schlotel. “Our Business Improvement team has been working hard to refine our production and warehousing processes so that we can efficiently hold more colour options in stock to ensure our roof kit lead time from placement of order to delivery is just five days. Swift turnaround in customer service is crucial to help our installing customers to make the most of market opportunities.” www.synseal.co.uk www.clearview-uk.com Booming ‘retrofit’ conservatory market »»Following the launch of its landmark new service supplying conservatory roof replacement leads to its members, Directors at Leads2trade say they have seen lead volumes soar. Leads2trade launched the service following strong demand from both homeowners and their members; and Director Andy Royle says that since going live they have been inundated with enquiries from homeowners looking for companies that operate in the conservatory retrofit market. Andy comments: “This is great news for installers as it shows there is an active and lucrative market for conservatory replacement roofs. It’s a bit of a perfect storm at the moment in this sector as the summer is approaching, major pension reforms are seeing money flood the economy and the improve rather than move trend is still alive.” Leads2trade is currently generating on average 250 leads per week for roof replacements and the team expect this to rise exponentially over the coming months, as they invest in new websites and consumer demand increases. Installers can receive leads in real-time via email or text, and calls can even be directly transferred to installers from the call centre whilst the customer is still on the phone.
