Dramatic upturn

Modplan has witnessed a dramatic upturn in sales of their Leka roofing collection, the company has reported.

Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s managing director, said: “Recent industry feedback confirmed a trend we all instinctively knew to be happening.

After years of slow-to-no growth, sales of conservatories and glazed extension products are on the rise. This is being particularly fuelled by the renovation, maintenance and improvement (RMI) sub-sector – homeowners upgrading their existing conservatories with more thermally efficient roofs and demand for feature-rich high-end specification roof products. Our Leka orangery roof and warm roof systems offers product choice to suit all domestic roof installations.”

The Leka orangery roof comes in kit form in four lightweight pre-assembled ladder sections, and all materials are pre-cuts. Modplan can also supply the roof lantern for a complete orangery roof package. This construction means installation is a two-man one-day project (not including the lantern and roof membrane). It’s jhai-approved so paperwork is kept to a minimum too.

“Our Leka roof range is a great value-added product to have in your portfolio because it taps into today’s consumer roof trends and allows you to capitalise on the opportunities this sector presents,” Heidi said.
