Installers looking to maximise patio door sales this summer should consider the benefits of working with local dealers, according to market leader PatioMaster. Patio door installations typically increase during the spring and summer months, as homeowners look to ‘bring the outdoors, in’, making their homes lighter and brighter, with improved access to the garden. To make the most of this seasonal increase in demand, window and door installers need high quality product, from a reliable supply chain, backed up by local knowledge and support. Eilidh Hudson, Business Development Manager of PatioMaster explains: “Patio doors can be strong sellers during the warmer months, but to capture these sales opportunities, installers need to be able to source doors quickly and install them easily, without the worry of callbacks further down the line. “The PatioMaster network of 11 dealers offers this complete package. Doors are available in just 5 working days from local dealers who are situated across the UK and Ireland; from Kilmarnock in Scotland to Paignton in the South West of England and from Antrim in Northern Ireland to Limerick in the South. Every PatioMaster dealer offers a wide range of doors in a choice of formats and foil finishes, and each door is made to measure, making them a true ‘fit and forget’ product. “The doors feature slimline profiles for minimal disruption to plaster upon fitting, and are supplied with easy-to-use installation kits for all applications, from exteriors to porches and room dividers. “PatioMaster installers can also benefit from free technical support at both a local and national level, which means any on-site or post-installation queries are swiftly resolved. “The PatioMaster network has been established for over a decade, and each dealer specialises in the fabrication of sliding patio doors, which means installers can be confident in their supply chain and the quality of the patio doors they are selling and fitting.” Web:, Email:, Phone: 0800 178 3370
