FENSA figures show strong trend

The quarter to September 30th 2013 has seen the second consecutive quarter of growth in installations of replacement windows and doors in domestic properties this year.

 

The figures for July, August and September are up 9.5% on the same period last year – July + 9.9%, August + 5.5% and September + 13.2%.  This represents the best 3rd quarter for installations since 2010, but it is still down 27% on the 2007 figures for the same period.

“There is no doubt about it that installation statistics are heading in the right direction,” comments FENSA managing director Chris Mayne.  “But we have to remember that any growth on last year’s figures was from a dismally low point and that we are still nearly a third below where we were before the recession took hold.”

89% of all window installations are covered by FENSA according to DCLG.
