Conservatory Outlet dealer and specialist manufacturer, supplier and installer of UPVC and aluminium-based conservatories, windows and doors, Joedan Home Improvements have unveiled plans to update their existing Gloucestershire showroom.
Based in Tewkesbury within the heart of the Cotswolds, the company has dedicated over £100,000 towards the refurbishment of the showroom, which will include a complete repaint of the interior of the site, the installation of custom-made carpet to the floor space and the addition of a new purpose-built reception area.
Two new window carousels displaying four separate window designs each, including Secured by Design triple glazing and seven brand new door displays showcasing both composite and UPVC doors will also take centre stage within the new-look showroom.
A dedicated ‘Conservatory Centre’ is also in the process of being constructed, due for completion at the beginning of September, so that Joedan can set-up four fully-furnished conservatory designs and give visitors a better understanding of the many benefits of owning a home extension.
Over a period of more than 25 years, Joedan Home Improvements have been the installer of choice for thousands of homeowners throughout the region, including areas such as Cheltenham, Swindon and Gloucester.
To help maintain their high-standing and push their product range further, company bosses felt that modernisation and investment into their Tewkesbury showroom was key to ensuring the moment a customer passes through its doors they will immediately recognise the professional and personalised service they can expect to receive.
All forms of home improvement will add value to your home. Certain types of home improvement will add large amounts of value. This usually includes building work, house extension and renovation of rooms such as the kitchen. Renovating a home can be a costly and time consuming project but many people gain a huge sense of achievement and pride when their house is transformed into a home filled with their ideas and dreams.
A valuable addition to any home is anything that creates more space for an additional purpose such as an extra bedroom or living space. UPVC conservatories are a popular home expanding spacious option. They can be tailor made to fit the space you have got available as well as a design which best suits the period of home and your personal tastes.
Conservatories are available in a variety of styles. These can be selected based on what your home looks like or what you simply wish to create. Different conservatories require different spaces and there are conservatories for small or large spaces.
The ability to add attractive French doors or patio doors leading onto your back garden gives your conservatory the ability to feel like an undercover extension to your garden whilst having the comfort of the indoors. Using your conservatory as living space to relax at any time of the year gives it a unique feel that the inside four walls of your existing home cannot give…
Over 50 retail sales representatives from within the Conservatory Outlet Network of Dealers are soon to be issued with new 15-piece sample kits after completing a professional sales training course over 7 months, led by industry-specific sales trainer Paul Clifton.
Comprised of a full triple glazed window sample, a high security door lock sample, a cross-section corner sample, textured and patterned class samples, colour samples and window and door furniture options, the kit has been manufactured and funded by the Wakefield-based fabricator so that salesmen can better advise customers of the vast options available to them.
The kit comes complete in custom-made, Conservatory Outlet branded sample bags to help protect the contents and give salesmen a professional look as they pay a visit to potential customers’ homes.
The comprehensive programme of sales training was carried out in a series of six masterclasses and one introductory session by the highly-respected Paul Clifton, who sold on the frontline very successfully for over 10 years and consequently set up his own training and consultancy business.
Each session was attended by sales representatives from across the entire dealership. The North West sessions were hosted at the Warrington base of Clearview Home Improvements; those in the South East were held at the Wycombe home of Hazlemere Window Company and Synseal Extrusions’ headquarters was the venue for the Midlands masterclasses.
Jim Oliver of Lincoln-based conservatory and double glazing specialists James Oliver Conservatories and Clive Brimmell of Housemaster Home Improvements, located in Potters Bar, are the latest victors in Conservatory Outlet’s monthly Top Dog competition.
Jim, who last year took the overall title of 2011 Top Dog, once again proved that his product knowledge and customer service skills remain second to none after he secured the largest total combined sales of windows, doors and conservatories in June, narrowly pipping his rivals to the post.
He also sealed the Largest Single Conservatory Order for June and remains a strong favourite to retain his Top Dog title six months into the competition, currently sitting at the top of the overall Top Dog leader board.
Clive also experienced a double victory; the owner of Housemaster Home Improvements scooped the title of Top Window Sales Advisor and registered the Largest Single Window Order in June. This leaves him in fourth position in the race to become the 2012 Top Window Sales Advisor.
Jim and Clive will both receive winner’s trophies to recognise their efforts and professional approach to sales.
The overall winners of the competition will be announced at the beginning of next year and will be rewarded with a significant cash prize, a trophy and the accolade of being a Top Dog.
Though forecasters are predicting an upturn in the weather over the next couple of weeks once the jet stream has cleared, this has so far been one of the wettest summers in recent history. At a time when temperatures are usually in the mid-late 20s, we have regularly been experiencing weather that has at certain times of the time struggled to reach double figures.
This is in part due to the amount of rainfall received and an overall lull in temperatures. Because of this, energyhelpline.com suggests that some Britons have experienced a 200 per cent rise in their summer heating bills, compared to what they would usually cost at this time of the year.
This comes as no surprise as when temperatures drop the natural instinct is to reach for the heater, crank up the temperature and make your way into the conservatory. It could be said that at this time of year you could get away with putting on a few extra layers of clothing to see off cold in the home, but some households may have to utilise their heating more so than other homes such as those that still have old traditional timber windows installed.
As with people, the ageing process catches up on windows. The older a window becomes, the less and less able it is to insulate homes, prevent heat loss and ultimately keep properties warm. This is because the frame often begins to weaken and crumble and the original glass inserted…
