HEALTHY SELF-BUILD MARKET CREATES A ROOFING OPPORTUNITY FOR INSTALLERS


A recent report ‘UK Self-build Market Report’ from Homebuilding & Renovating Market Research indicates that ‘the UK self-build market shows signs of good health following third successive quarter of growth.’


According to the report, self-build home completions rose by 3.75 per cent in the first three months of 2012 and while UK housing completions have fallen this set of figures shows that the self-build sector is proving more resilient.


With the Government looking at taking steps to negate the impact of CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) on self- build projects, the outlook continues to look bright with an expected increase in the self build market for 2012 into 2013. Tis is good news for Sika Sarnafil whose success at this year’s National Home Improvements Show, Birmingham confirms the trend, with many visitors to the stand either thinking of or in the process of a self build project.


Rod Benson national sales manager, Sika


Sarnafil commented: “Over the last few year’s Sika Roof Assured has reversed its market from probably 60% refurbishment of existing roofs to probably more than 60% of new build projects such as extensions, loft conversions and orangeries. When homebuilders are investing both financially and emotionally in a self build project quality, workmanship and warranties are very important. When drawing up plans for a self builder Architects are most likely to specify such a recognised brand as Sarnafil because of its strong brand heritage, reputation and performance record. For many it has become a generic term for single ply roofing.”


Eco conscious self builders also benefit from the eco credentials of the Sarnafil single ply membrane. Membranes are manufactured in Switzerland to ISO14001, are recyclable and each new m2 contains a percentage of recycled membrane.


Rod Benson continues: “Differentiation is becoming increasingly important in a cluttered marketplace and the Sarnafil roofing membrane give installers and fabricators a ‘product appeal’ that is critical to attracting new customers. On self build projects there are long lead times for specifying roofing so now is the time for contractors to think ahead and join our installer network to reap the benefits of a growing market.”


Te Sika Roof Assured courses are carried out quarterly and demand is high so if you want to become part of a successful, profitable and growing installer network then contact Sika Roof Assured sales department on 01603 726500 or email roofassured@ uk.sika.com.
