Raising standards

The Ultraframe Ultra Installer Scheme is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

In 2004, when the glazing industry was plagued by stories of rogue traders, Ultraframe was keen to raise the standards and the reputation of the industry, while providing homeowners with a way to carry out their conservatory project with complete peace of mind.

The scheme’s aims are to recognise and promote the activities of elite Ultraframe installation companies who can demonstrate the highest levels of service throughout their sales, installation and after-sales processes.

Ultraframe’s marketing director Alex Hewitt said: “We’re extremely proud that our Ultra Installer Scheme is still putting homeowners in touch with reputable installation companies some 15 years after it was launched. The traditional gift for a 15th anniversary is crystal, and it’s crystal clear to us why the Ultra Installer Scheme is still such a success after so many years: homeowners are able to commission their conservatory or extension project with complete peace of mind about the standards of product, installation and service quality they will receive, while installers benefit from homeowner sales leads, as well as access to a huge range of marketing materials.

“It’s no surprise that a large number of founding members are still a part of the scheme and we would like to thank them, and our newer members, for their support over the years.”

Alan Aston, sales director of founding Ultra Installer Scheme member High Tech Windows of Cheltenham, said: “Anything that raises standards in the industry and helps to educate homeowners about installation companies that they can trust gets the thumbs up from us, and of course, we have also benefitted from sales leads, marketing assistance and more over the years.”
