GROSVENOR INSTALLS FIRST R9 AND NOW THE LIST GROWS
Glazerite customer Bolton-based Grosvenor Windows has successfully completed its first Residence 9 installation, with a healthy quote bank building in its wake.
Grosvenor supplied two sets of French Doors, a Bow window and four sash windows to the private residence after the owners visited Grosvenor’s Bolton showroom. The couple had already researched the market and decided upon the Residence 9 system, which is designed to replicate the ubiquitous 19th century flush sash timber window that features in so many British homes. Keen to reduce the maintenance on their windows and doors the couple decided to replace their timber frames when they became aware that a PVC-U window was available that closely replicated the style of the originals in their home.
The couple had already obtained a quote from a major national retailer but decided to get at least one more and, following their visit to Grosvenor’s showroom found that not only was the quote more competitive a two year interest-free finance option also served to offset the additional cost of Residence 9 over conventional systems. What closed the deal for the couple was the manufactured quality of the product.
Grosvenor’s Richard Martin handled the sale to the couple: “They had researched the market well and were determined to install Residence 9. They chose Grosvenor to provide the windows and doors when they became confident that we could do the job at least as well as the national retailer they had already received a quote from. Our price, service and the quality of the products manufactured by hand in Glazerite’s specialist range production facility in Wellingborough sealed the deal.”
Glazerite, one of the UK’s largest trade fabricators, began manufacturing windows and doors using the Residence 9 system last year. The product has become something of a sensation due to the attention to detail paid with the offer of authentic period design and features, coupled with the latest weather and security performance standards.
Pete Smith, head of Glazerite’s Bolton operation, says Residence 9 has further extended the company’s vast range of products, styles and options: “Our policy is to provide our customers with the largest possible arsenal of products to ensure they can go after all sales opportunities and handle every demand from customers. Residence 9 is quickly capturing a very specific customer base and is an increasingly important addition.”
