With high demand for their range of replacement conservatory and orangery roof kits, the team at SupaLite are celebrating a record month for the company in October.
In a bumper month for the Preston-based manufacturer, SupaLite saw a 20% increase in orders, helping to surpass their previous best month. In fact, the firm set a remarkable new record in October, manufacturing and supplying well over 70 roof kits in one week alone.
In addition to the demand for their kit-based roof systems, SupaLite has seen a growing number of partners take advantage of their new part-fabricated roof service, designed for smaller fabricators who may lack the facilities to hold bar-length material. They have also seen a positive response to their new product lines including Sky Vista, a high-performance solid tiled roof with full-length glazed feature panels.
Wes Clarkson, Commercial Manager at SupaLite believes the rise in demand is in line with the prime-time homeowners look to improve the performance of their conservatories.
Wes comments: “Traditional polycarbonate roofs are renowned for making conservatories too hot in the summer and unbelievably cold in the winter. However, with the kids off and many families away on summer holidays, homeowners are often too busy in the summer to make any changes and instead get ready for winter, when they’ll see the biggest benefit.
“This is a regular trend we see here at SupaLite, but it has certainly been more pronounced this year thanks to a challenging housing market and general uncertainty. With the number of houses for sale at a 10-year low and Brexit damaging the confidence of both buyers and sellers, many homeowners are now improving rather than moving to find that extra living space they need.
“We’re thrilled to be providing installers nationwide with such a valuable proposition. SupaLite has been setting the standard in the replacement roof market for many years so it’s great to see growth here at HQ and across our network of approved fabricators and installers. We must thank and congratulate our brilliant team in Preston for all their hard work in answering this mammoth demand.”
A busy October continued a blockbuster year at SupaLite with major manufacturing upgrades, new staff, new product lines and successful appearance at The FIT Show.
One of their proudest achievements has been launching the new SupaLite SupaStore, a brand-new facility which combines a complete trade counter and a dynamic customer hub. Based near their Preston HQ, SupaStore not only offers fantastic showroom facilities covering the complete SupaLite range but a dedicated training space for new and existing trade partners.
Trusted by fabricators and installers across the UK, SupaLite offers a full range of highly-desirable, replacement roof solutions for both conservatories and orangeries. Fully accredited for Building Regulations approval, a SupaLite tiled roof is not only easy to manufacture and install, it’s a cost-effective solution that creates a useable space all-year-round.
