DO THE LAST QUARTER FIGURES MEAN WE’VE TURNED THE CORNER ASKS FENSA


2012 ended with positive growth of +1.05% in the number of replacement window and door installation notifications for the last three months of the year compared to the same period in 2011, says FENSA.


Tis was the first quarter growth recorded since 2007 and might suggest 2013 will be a more positive year for the industry. However, the number of replacement windows and doors installed in domestic properties was down year-on-year by 2.9%.


October and November were the only two consecutive months that saw increased installations recorded last year (+8.9% and +1.9% respectively) – and the total for the whole quarter was only dragged down by a disappointing performance in December (down 9.2%).


Four months saw increased installations in 2012 compared to just one in 2011:


• January 2012 +5.5% • July 2012


+4.3%


• October 2012 +8.9% • November 2012 +1.9%


“FENSA is continuing to support the GGF’s campaign for reduced VAT on energy efficient replacement windows and doors,” comments FENSA Operations Director Chris Mayne. “Tis industry is still suffering from the economic downturn – though we will


look with interest to see whether installations pick up in January to give us all a good start to 2013.”


FENSA is reporting on the total number of notifications of installations of replacement windows and doors in domestic properties in 2012.


FENSA will be publishing Quarterly Window and Doors Installation figures during 2013 to allow the industry to accurately assess where the market is at any given time.


Tey will be used by our sister company the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF)


to lobby government for support for our industry.


92.5% of all window installations are covered by FENSA according to DCLG (glazing CPS notifications to March 2012).
