Biggest growth opportunity

Replacement conservatory roofs are one of the biggest growth opportunities in the glass and glazing sector and their popularity with homeowners shows no sign of slowing down, according to Andy Royle, director of Leads2trade.

Since beginning to generate leads for replacement conservatory roofs in 2015, the number of enquiries Leads2trade is generating has increased month on month – hitting a record number of over 600 in March 2017.

Andy said most enquiries are to replace old polycarbonate roofs for solid tile and lantern style roofs.

“Despite the rocky economic conditions, homeowners want to invest in their properties and replacement conservatory roofs are in vogue,” he said. “The replacement roof market is doing particularly well as consumers look to upgrade their old polycarbonate and glass roofs to solid tile.

“Homeowners want lifestyle rooms such as orangeries and extensions and will choose the performance benefits of solid tile and lantern roofs over polycarbonate and glass roofs, which can leave a room too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.”

The company has released a conservatory roof buyers’ guide, which is provided to the consumer once the lead has been qualified.

Steve Hacking, operations director at Supalite Tiled Roof Sytems, a Leads2trade customer, said: “The replacement conservatory roof sector is indeed continuing to grow, with demand from homeowners sustained. Certainly, for us we have a strong pipeline of work going forward. It’s definitely a trend now in the UK; as homeowners look to update their conservatory and outdoor living spaces.”
