Though it hasn’t been the harshest of winters, you’ll still likely be happy that the coldest season of the year is nearing its conclusion and that better, bright, sunnier weather is hopefully on its way as we approach spring and await the clocks going forward. There’s something about the sunshine and a little bit of warmth that helps, pardon the pun, put a spring in your step as it can leave you feeling re-energised and positively transform your mood. We find that the best place to embrace the spring and summer climate whilst in the home is in a conservatory or orangery. The moment the sun comes into contact with a home extension, the entire structure will illuminate right before your very eyes and make it feel incredibly airy and spacious. Because they come fitted with modern double glazed windows you can expect a comfortable ambience around the clock too so that...

Mobile browsing has intensified at a dramatic rate over the past few years, leading to its eventual overtaking of the desktop PC due to the explosion of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. With 53% of internet searches now being conducted on a mobile device, it has become progressively important that businesses cater for this change in browsing habits by upgrading their digital platform to a fully responsive website so that customers are offered a mobile-friendly and positive online experience. That’s why we are in the midst of creating a series of fully responsive websites for several of our retailers designed to automatically condense the size of the content viewable on a desktop site to make it more easily digestible on the form of device utilised. This permanently eliminates the need for zooming or shrinking. We’ve increasingly found that consumers are...

2015 is a milestone year for the Conservatory Outlet dealership as later this year we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary as a network; a significant landmark in any walk of life we’re sure you’ll agree.

From our manufacturing base in Yorkshire, we have made enormous strides over the past decade and now have installation partners across the UK with more than 30 top-end indoor showrooms, offering the latest window, door, conservatory and orangery solutions.

We’re not opening the champagne just yet though, and when we do we’ll be sure not to rest on our laurels. Instead we’ll be looking forward to the next 10 years and striving to further improve on what we do.

We will be properly marking the occasion later in the year, during the month of our actual anniversary, so keep your eyes peeled on the blog.

 

 

Prior to the Christmas period the finishing touches were applied to a brand new online platform for Worcestershire-based Conservatory Outlet Dealer, 5 Star Windows & Conservatories, and the redesigned site is now officially live in time for 2015. The previous version of the site had been in existence for around three years and served its clients well with information, image galleries and ways to contact the company, but 5 Star felt that a contemporary transformation would further enhance its usefulness. Keenly aware that their website is the first port of call for many customers, they have ensured that the new site more effectively showcases their full array of home improvement offerings and provides a sleek and simple navigational user experience.  Particular emphasis has been given to ensuring that imagery utilised throughout the site is of the highest quality with many of...

It’s a hugely exciting start to 2015 for Wokingham-based Conservatory Outlet Dealers TradeMark Windows who recently relocated their showroom to a brand new spacious site in Woodley, Reading.

Christmas is finally here and it’s the ideal time to reflect on the past 12 months in what has been a hugely successful year for Conservatory Outlet and its burgeoning national installer network.

2014 has seen us welcome new members on-board, introduce new products into our already extensive range of home improvement offerings, unveil a revolutionary new website and much more.

Plans are already afoot to make 2015 an even more memorable year for Conservatory Outlet to enable us to retain our position as the country’s leading provider of quality home improvements so watch this space for even more exciting developments.

In the meantime, we would like to wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and hope that you continue to show us your invaluable support.

We’re all guilty of it; overspending at Christmas. It’s so easy to get carried away when present buying for your close friends and loved ones, not to mention all the cash you inevitably splash out on food and drink and at those many different festive parties. So when January comes around and the sales arrive many people are out for a bargain. January is a fantastic time to shop for many things, including clothes, home appliances and electrical items, and the same goes for windows, doors and conservatories, particularly when you choose Conservatory Outlet. So if your New Year’s resolution is to enhance your home then you’ll be pleased to know that many of our dealers will be offering local discounts and promotions on their products so make sure you keep an eye on their websites/showrooms throughout the month for any special deals.   For instance, if you...

When Mr Wise of Norwich submitted a customer review assessing the performance of his local Conservatory Outlet dealer Amber Home Improvements via our website he could hardly have imagined that doing so would pocket him a little pre-Christmas windfall. Well it has after his name was randomly selected following the review he posted back in June making him the latest customer to walk away with our monthly £500 cash prize. Receiving regular feedback from our customers is massively important as it helps dealers enhance their service offering which is why upon implementation of the customer review centre we decided to offer a potential monetary incentive to all of those who go to the trouble of providing comment. Over 2,000 customers have submitted their feedback through the review centre since its inception, with an impressive 98.9% of customers recommending our dealers (figure...

As we reach the final straight before the Christmas and New Year period temperatures are fast beginning to drop and many homeowners will have started to notice external condensation forming on their windows first thing in the morning. External condensation is a regular occurrence during the spring and autumn months but what many people don’t expect is for it to appear on newly installed double glazed energy efficient windows, associating it more with thermal inefficient single glazed windows. Pleased don’t be concerned by condensation as it’s actually an indicator that your energy efficient windows are performing effectively when it comes to keeping heat in your home and preventing warmth from escaping. The only time you should be perturbed is when the inside of the window becomes mist as this usually indicates that the unit is damaged/broken and needs...

It’s virtually impossible not to overindulge over the festive period and we’ll all likely be looking to adopt a healthier approach once Christmas and New Year have passed. What better way to do it than by signing up to ‘Veganuary’, a campaign aiming to reduce the suffering of animals by inspiring people to adopt a Vegan lifestyle throughout January, an initiative proudly sponsored by Conservatory Outlet. It’s a campaign that lies very close to the hearts of Conservatory Outlet as several members of the team, including our MD, and other people involved in our national network are Vegans so we were only too happy to show our support. This year marks the second running of Veganuary after a hugely successful launch in 2013 which lead to thousands of people around the world ditching animal-based products for 31 days, many of whom then assumed Veganism on a...
