August was a very funny month. In terms of leads and sales right at the beginning it was relatively busy. Then during the middle of the month it all went quiet, presumably due to the summer school holidays. The right at the back end of the month people seemed to have woken up again the leads started to flow back in again. The difference in lead quality was stark also.

The leads in the last ten days or so have been of a very high quality. Almost all have been very large houses full of new windows and doors as well as roofline products. Something we weren’t finding at the beginning of the month. The feedback from customers now is that they are wanting to get their homes better insulated before the cold weather sets in. But this always makes me smirk a little bit, as they have had ALL summer in order to do this, yet people always leave it till the back end of the year!

How was August for everyone else?
