>The snow is falling again here in Wakefield. But we have had some life wander into the office so far this morning and some leads have been made for next week which looks a bit more promising. Once the cold snap has been and gone, we have to use it as a fantastic selling point to advertise energy rated windows. If there ever was a better excuse and time to replace old inefficient windows and doors it is now!

All this cold weather might kick a few dawdling customers up the backside into getting their windows replaced. Our industry does struggle in times like this, but we also have to use it to our advantage.

This time next year I know what I’ll be doing to earn some extra cash, selling grit!
