Record month celebrated

SupaLite celebrated a record month in October, thanks to high demand for its range of replacement conservatory and orangery roof kits.

The company saw a 20% increase in orders, helping to surpass its previous best month; SupaLite manufactured and supplied more than 70 roof kits in one week alone.

SupaLite said it has also seen a growing number of partners take advantage of its new part-fabricated roof service, designed for smaller fabricators who may lack the facilities to hold bar-length material. It has also seen a positive response to new product lines including Sky Vista, a high-performance solid tiled roof with full-length glazed feature panels.

Wes Clarkson, commercial manager at SupaLite said: “Traditional polycarbonate roofs are renowned for making conservatories too hot in the summer and unbelievably cold in the winter. However, with the kids off and many families away on summer holidays, homeowners are often too busy in the summer to make any changes and instead get ready for winter, when they’ll see the biggest benefit.

“This is a regular trend we see here at SupaLite, but it has certainly been more pronounced this year thanks to a challenging housing market and general uncertainty. With the number of houses for sale at a 10-year low and Brexit damaging the confidence of both buyers and sellers, many homeowners are now improving rather than moving to find that extra living space they need.”
