It was a great end to 2018 for Monarch Home Improvements (North East) Ltd as the business won FENSA Installation of the Year at the G18 Awards.

The business based in Hebburn Tyne and Wear and is an Authorised REHAU Partner, was presented with the award at the G18 ceremony, hosted at the London Hilton, Park Lane, on Friday, November 30th.

The project, which won the firm the coveted award, saw Monarch Home Improvements replace the windows at a farmhouse in nearby Chopwell with REHAU TOTAL70 window profiles and two Rockdoor Composite doors and side panels.

David Lyall, Managing Director at Monarch Home Improvements, said: “This national award is a real game changer for our small business. After almost 13 years of hard work, and 12 years working with REHAU, it is fantastic to be acknowledged in this way.

“The winning installation is selected from the completed jobs which have been registered by FENSA’s over 6,000 registered installers and inspected by FENSA during the year. Installations scoring high marks from both the homeowner and the inspectors are shortlisted, and three finalists are selected. So to be named the winner of the ‘Installation of the Year’ is just really amazing.

“We’ve worked with REHAU for many years and enjoy the quality of products and the choice of styles, colours and colourfast, so it was an obvious choice for us when it came to this particular project – and a great outcome for all.”

Monarch Home Improvements was set up as a family business in 2006 and founded on hard work and top-quality service and workmanship. It has since gone from strength to strength, gradually building into a business known for first class customer service and quality installations.

Sam Tynan, Trade Sales Support Representative at REHAU added: “We are delighted that Monarch Home Improvements has been recognised with this award. They have worked with us for 12 years and as a loyal Authorised Partner since the scheme began, and we are proud to work with them as the quality of their work is top notch. The frames for the winning installation were also made by one of our long-established fabricators in the North East of England, Yorkshire Trade Frames, so it was a great moment for all involved.”
