A recent survey carried out by the team here Improveasy has shown that more than 40% of the UK’s window and door installers have seen an increase in the number of domestic projects they have completed. As the industry’s leading finance provider, we were able to accomplish this by teaming up with Insight Data to ask the nation’s 11,000 installers their thoughts on the industry and a wide range of topics.
Good news for reliable tradesmen operating in the domestic sector
The results revealed that over 40% had seen an increase in the number of domestic installations they had carried out in 2017, compared to that of the previous year. Falling very much in line with this, a huge 64% of respondents reported that the number of sales leads they received in 2017 was higher than the number they received in 2018 too. Boding well for the current calendar year!
Improveasy: At the forefront of finance package popularity
Our Manging Director Austin Barcley expressed his thoughts on the findings, commenting “The figures are illuminating and correlate with finance options being used by more and more installers. This is something we’ve been at the forefront of.
“We’re seeing a month on month increase in installers becoming Appointed Representatives with us and helping homeowners to fund or part-fund home improvements with finance.”
Austin also says that behind the figures there are some trends emerging when it comes to home improvements.
“Our network of installer partners often see finance packages being used to support the installation of new windows and doors and there is a growing trend for combining different materials on a single property.
“For example, on a period property timber may be used on the front – retaining character – and aluminium on the back, offering a modern aesthetic and a stunning outlook on to a garden. Our solutions can help make these more unusual options affordable.”
