PatioMaster SouthEast has reported a 12% year-on-year sales growth. Simon Spiers, Director at the company, said: “We are an independent, family-run company that offers customers the best of both worlds: the ability to buy locally alongside the reassurance of a nationally respected and proven brand. As the patio door market continues to grow, we’re the obvious choice for fabricators and installers in our region and this is reflected in our sales growth.”

Simon reports that the sales growth comes across the entire patio door range, including the latest addition to the portfolio, the Triple-track system, which offers up to 25% more open space than a conventional patio door.

Simon comments: “As the market reports show, more and more consumers are discovering what sliding patios have to offer when it comes to the trend for big expanses of glass. The sliding patio door delivers on this better than any other option. The construction allows for wider glazed panels and fewer vertical frames to break the view. It means a sleeker, cleaner look that maximises the light, no matter what the size of the door.”

While doors of all sizes are seeing growth, one noticeable trend is around colour. Simon says: “Anthracite grey patio doors are almost becoming the default colour of choice with our customers.  It’s a contemporary colour that fits into the design palette of today’s consumers and remains the number one requested colour.”

PatioMaster South East is based in New Romney, Kent and serves customers in London, Kent, Brighton and the surrounding areas. It offers rapid order turnaround, outstanding technical and product support and, of course, the bespoke, precision-made doors for which PatioMaster is renowned.

The PatioMaster business model offers the reassurance of a national brand and high quality, cutting edge products with the personal service of a local company. As PatioMaster South East’s sales show, it’s a model that many installers are finding appealing when it comes to tapping into the growing patio door market.
