New Edinburgh showroom

Sidey has opened the doors to its Edinburgh showroom in the out-of-town shopping area near Edinburgh’s Ikea.

It is kitted out with 36 entrance doors and many different types of traditional and modern windows, all full sized and installed in home style settings.

Steve Hardy, joint managing director said: “The concept for the new showroom is to be different to any other in the UK. We recognise that the climate in building and renovating homes is different and this is our response. That’s why the new showroom is designed not just for the retail side of the business, but for our commercial customers too. It’s somewhere they can come to get inspiration for glazing and to look at the latest ideas in window and door design, to create warmer and more secure homes.

“The first day was very busy. Local radio station Forth 1 ran a competition for listeners. Almost 400 entered, and 20 finalists, along with their supporters, descended on the showroom for the draw. Then Forth 1 presenters Boogie and Arlene revealed the winner.

“Nicola McIntosh, the winner of the top prize, couldn’t believe her luck, saying she had never won anything before. It’s timely for her and her husband, as they are embarking on some major work for their home. She told us that she’s going to put the £2,500 prize towards either a porch or conservatory.”
