    Home maintenance and improvement trends
    still moving at pace

    arrow Back to news 15th February 2015

    The number of homeowners stepping up their drive for maintaining and improving their properties is showing no signs of slowing down, with TrustMark reporting another bumper year of assisting those looking to develop their properties in 2015.

    The Government-endorsed scheme for tradespeople announced that more than 8.1 million search results were provided to UK homeowners through the TrustMark website and its telephone helpline; designed to source local firms and tradespeople for home maintenance and improvement trends.


    It was a 12 per cent year-on-year increase in search requests compared to the same period in 2014 and 55 per cent more than the number of search queries in 2013.


    Following the major storms at the start of 2014, TrustMark registered roofers and tree surgeons saw their busiest months during January and February and with storms rife across the country at the present time it’s likely they will be in high demand again during the same period this year.


    Simon Ayers, chief executive, TrustMark, said: “Homeowners are increasingly understanding the importance of only using professional firms to do their home improvements and repair work, particularly at a time when people are concerned about their finances.


    “TrustMark provides homeowners with extra security, the reassurances they are looking for and the confidence that they are working with tradespeople who are the best in the business.


    “We continue to work closely with our approved scheme operators and TrustMark-registered firms, as well as with influential consumer organisations such as Age UK, Citizens Advice and the Chartered Trading.”


    At Sunsquare we take great delight in being specified by self-builders and home renovators to supply our BSI Kitemarked flat roof skylights that are refined through rigorous prototyping to ensure they are truly fit for purpose.


    We’re recognised nationally by architects for multiple reasons: our roof windows are some of the most aesthetically pleasing on the market; they surpass safety standards by quite some margin in terms of air permeability, weather tightness and wind resistance; they offer excellent thermal performance; and they are manufactured in-house right here in the UK.


    If you’re planning to undertake renovations to your home this year you might wish to visit Grand Designs Live London 2016 at the ExCeL Centre in the Docklands area for inspiration. Sunsquare will be present, exhibiting the UK’s only BSI Kitemarked range of flat rooflights in the at .


    Sunsquare’s senior sales team will be on-hand throughout the week-long event to answer any questions you may have and to discuss your exciting projects in more detail.
