Door-Stop sales in May have increased by 30% on last year’s figures. The growth is coming both from existing installer customers, who are buying 10% more Door-Stop composite doors than this time last year, and from new customers joining at a rate of 24 a week.
Nick Dutton, Managing Director of Door-Stop, comments: “These figures represent a significant increase on last year’s good results. We’ve seen a trend of customers ordering more composite doors as the trade in panel doors falls. Homeowners are demanding better security, energy efficiency and a quality door that looks like timber. I don’t believe the total number of new doors sold across the industry has increased by such a large percentage but I’m sure composite doors are making substantial gains at the expense of panel doors. To stay ahead of demand, we’ve invested in another CNC machine – bringing our total to eight.”
