Are homeowners missing out on added value?

Grey, green and blue colours are now helping to add tens of thousands of pounds to property prices according to recent national statistics. Deborah Hendry, managing director of Kolorseal, says that those who only fabricate in white PVC-U are causing many homeowners to lose value on their properties.

Thanks to our bespoke colour coated options at Kolorseal, there is a solution that can help fabricators to upsell their window and door products which will bring them much greater profit margins.

Colour is the dimension on a project which adds that final appeal and sets it apart from others. This is very evident when it comes to targeting homeowners, as it is now as important to them as energy efficiency and safety guarantees because it is a distinction that helps to add real value.

According to recent surveys done by national companies, adding colour coated windows and doors could add up to £70,000 onto the price of a property by comparison to traditional white alternatives, depending on where in the country the property is located.

Looking at the bigger picture, fabricators would be wise to expand their colour options, as they will add more to a business not just in terms of profit, but in referral business for installers.

A delivery van full of coloured windows uses the same amount of PVC-U, but it brings in a lot more money to a company. Furthermore thanks to our Kolorseal services, we can eliminate storage issues, by reducing the amount of coloured stock that takes up valuable factory floor space.

Grey is now a first choice for many homeowners when looking to add kerb appeal to both traditional and modern homes. This was recently reflected in a Kolorsealed renovation project where an alternative grey colour was chosen for the final finish.

The homeowner of a traditional property wanted something that brought a modern touch to the replacement window installation, so opted for a colour match to the Farrow and Ball Charleston grey shade.

While grey anthracite windows are now commonplace on new build projects, homeowners want to add their own personal touch and are looking at alternative grey options.

Using only a handful of grey colour options does not provide the distinctive tones that end users are looking for to personalise their home. Attention to detail for homeowners is increasingly important when it comes to coloured products.

There are so many grey options for window and door frames, all of which can really help to add value to any style of property.

As personalisation becomes increasingly important, particularly as homeowners are renovating rather than opting to sell in the current economic climate, it is evident that there will be a lot of windows, doors, roofline and conservatories produced in a wide variety of grey, blue and green tones moving forward.

Buying windows can be challenging for homeowners if they aren’t aware of what is available to them. Fortunately the industry has now recognised that broader colour choice means better profit margins and improved business potential.

Everyone has different tastes but there are so many great colour palettes available that will appeal to homeowners and builders looking at attracting buyers into the higher end properties. Colour coating is an attractive window and door alternative that is durable and can be produced in dual shades to blend with internal and external appearances.

They simply add value and provide a great talking point when it comes to improving a home.

For fabricators, installers or architects, easing the worries about delivery times and colour guarantees is also a part of the service.
