Reports of record levels of interest in conservatories despite the impact of Covid-19 will be the boost the sector needs as the country slowly starts getting back on its feet, according to tiled roof system supplier, SupaLite.
The company’s marketing partner, Purplex, is constantly tracking Google search data and has reported the search term ‘conservatory’ is at its highest level since 2004.
For Steve Hacking, managing director of SupaLite, the news is perfect for SupaLite’s registered installers and according to Steve, its high-performance SupaLite tiled roof system and Sky Vista glass system will be in increased demand as a result.
Steve said: “After months of lockdown, not to mention the recent spell of fantastic weather, homeowners are gaining a new appreciation of their homes with a renewed desire to increase their living space and bring the outdoors in.
“They will be looking at ways to achieve it, whether through replacing their inefficient conservatory with a retro-fit product or investing in a brand-new conservatory, complete with a high-performance solid tiled roof.”
The SupaLite Tiled Roof System uses lightweight aluminium beams and rafters, 100mm high-density insulation and high-performance ExtraLight roof tiles to achieve a U-value rating of 0.18W/m²K, while SupaLite says Sky Vista has ‘excellent’ U-value properties and effective solar control to allow plenty of natural light to flow through, as well as self-cleaning glass.
SupaLite says both systems are easy to install and fully accredited for Building Regulations approval.
Steve added: “With interest in conservatories rocketing, our range of replacement conservatory roof systems can provide ambitious installers with a valuable route to market and good profit margins.”
SupaLite has a dedicated training space and showroom site near its headquarters in Preston for its installer partners to utilise. For more information call SupaLite on 01772 828060.
