20 installers have so far enjoyed free training sessions courtesy of Buckingham-based sash window specialists Roseview. Since last year, Roseview managing director Willie Kerr has been delivering two half day courses – one designed to improve product knowledge and one explaining how to survey and install sash windows – to roomfuls of eager installers wanting to learn more about how they can succeed in the buoyant and lucrative VS market.

“We’ve been delighted by the success of the sash training school,” said Willie. “The two courses give us a chance to put to bed the outdated myths and stereotypes about sash windows being difficult to fit, and explain to installers the unique features and benefits of the Rose Collection. We all know the market is getting more competitive, and installers now need high-quality products to help them stand out from the crowd. By the end of the course all delegates should understand how our sash windows differ to others on the market. Demand is such that I’m now running one per week and we’re planning to increase this over the coming months.”

Marketing manager Mike Bygrave followed on from Willie’s comments: “The courses are free and give us the chance to show our commitment to our customers. The aim is to equip our installers with the knowledge they need to sell and fit sash windows – all they have to do is give us a call to book their place.”

Though based on REHAU and Eurocell profile systems, Roseview’s signature Rose Collection offer a unique take on the uPVC sliding sash. The Charisma Rose, Heritage Rose and Ultimate Rose have been carefully designed and expertly crafted to deliver the most authentic-looking PVC sashes currently available. The G-Award-winning Ultimate Rose features mechanical joints and elegant run-through sash horns, and has been approved for use in numerous conservation areas.

In April, Roseview will be showcasing their products, as well as those of their secondary glazing sister company Incarnation Windows, at the FIT show for the first time.
