Notifications of replacement windows and doors in domestic properties in the first quarter of 2014 are up 8.4%* on the same period last year, says FENSA. This represents the best January, February and March since 2011. January installations were up 11.3%, February up 6.6% and March up 7.6%.
“We have now seen four consecutive quarters of growth,” comments FENSA Managing Director Chris Mayne. “The same period last year saw a disappointing 5.4% decrease in notifications compared to quarter one in 2012. The industry appears to be in a much better position now.”
89% of all window installations are covered by FENSA according to DCLG.
