An installer of PatioMaster has recently completed a £25k showroom refurb, with modern sliding door displays.
Northern Ireland’s Budget Windows & Conservatories has been a customer of PatioMaster Northern Ireland since 2010, when they were recommended to PatioMaster from another customer, and haven’t looked back since, as Managing Director David Evans explains.
“Since we started installing PatioMaster sliding doors, we’ve had none of the issues that we have experienced with other manufacturers. In fact, once they are installed we can almost forget about them; they are virtually indestructible! Since we started trading 22 years ago we have changed fabricator four times, but four years ago we made the decision to use PatioMaster Northern Ireland for 100%, and we really believe that no other PVC-U manufacturer can offer the reliability that PatioMaster does.”
Initially, the company were going to build a display of aluminium bi-folding doors in the 10,000 sq ft showroom, but after a consultation with PatioMaster, they decided to go for grey on grey 4 pane sliders, which fit in with the modern flat roof extension that was built in place of a large, old conservatory. “Customer feedback told us that people are moving away from bi-folds and towards patio sliders and since the refurb sales have increased over 400%, with special order colours up 6%. We used to shy away from sliders but they are the preferred choice of door now for customers, as opposed to being a product they end up getting talked into. We are installing four a week now, from 2, 3 and 4 pane options.” David continues.
The company are already at four times the amount they were trading at last year, and David believes this is attributed to the ease and popularity of the PatioMaster sliding doors. “Across the board the whole package is appealing. You can find cheaper doors sure, but the quality and reliability of PatioMaster is unbeatable. Our association with the brand and the choice of products has given us a competitive edge, and allowed us to offer something a little more exciting and unique. The refurbishment has resulted in a huge increase, not just in the amount of orders we receive but also the order value.”
