Housing demand is growing by over 200,000 households a year with only a very small % of these being met by new homes. Therefore, now more than ever, we are seeing people staying put and improving their homes, rather than moving on or moving up the property ladder, which used to be commonplace just 20 years ago. Those that are moving are readily doing up their homes to maximise potential profit.
This is a perfect opportunity for the home improvement sector; growing year on year, the £14 billion UK industry is booming. This is especially true in the ‘do it for me’ area, as opposed to ‘DIY’. As a recent article in the Financial Times confirms, people are more and more turning to tradesmen and craftsmen to undertake tasks that just a decade ago would have been seen as a ‘Do It Yourself’ project. This has given rise to greater opportunities for businesses in the Home Improvement Service sector.
Just Shutters have been providing the widest range of top quality shutters for over a decade. Growing from the South Coast, we now cover more than 160 towns and cities in the UK.
‘Demand for shutters is growing each year and shows no signs of slowing. We have established a great reputation and as our customer base grows, so too do recommendations and additional orders. We are continuously seeing demand rise from first time purchasers month on month. This shows that there is a trend towards people making long term decisions for their homes,’ says Marketing Manager Charlotte Fantelli.
‘Obviously the home improvement market has a huge impact. When it comes to deciding which franchise to consider within the sector, you have to make sure you are buying in to a market that you believe in, that offers the right package; training, support, marketing and long-term opportunities for you. I believe so very strongly that Just Shutters offers this in spades!’ She adds.
