Korniche technical knowledge the Made for Trade team helped the public weigh up the pros and cons of all the other products on the market and then laid bare the Korniche lantern by demonstrating the full installation process in front of large crowds throughout the show . The roof demos enabled homeowners to see the ease of fit and to see and feel the quality of engineering and reasoning behind the innovative features of the product . It ’ s something that no other Lantern manufacturer could perform in front of an expectant crowd without exposing how they rely on silicone , onsite cutting , drilling , packing etc all adding up to substantially more time to successfully install their conservatory roof-based systems .
Feedback from the London Show for the Korniche was amazingly positive with prospective customers
commenting on the high quality , extensive range of colour and design choice all topped off by the roof being available at some of the most competitive prices in the market – some people were visibly shocked that a completely bespoke size and colour could be delivered in under 2 weeks
with no “ bespoke price premium ”. Korniche really has proved to be a solution that delivers ‘ more for less ’ when compared to the other Glass Roof Lanterns available .
We also got a chance to see first-hand the way that consumers and homeowners in today ’ s market are prepared to do plenty
of product research of their own before choosing finishing products for their build projects and not just be happy to accept what the builder usually uses , and whilst there will always be a preference based purely on the aesthetic , quality well engineered products offering innovation and critically ,
choice , to the end user become a prospect that ’ s hard to ignore .
This insight from the homeowners has provided us with confidence that the Korniche lantern will become ‘ the ’ lantern of choice for homeowners looking for flat roof extension project solutions .
Installers and builders who have already embraced the Korniche system are spending less time on site and enjoying a more profitable experience thanks to the Made for Trade Lantern . Korniche as we have discovered also has a big consumer appeal which is based on much more than just great looks .
If you haven ’ t installed the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern , now is the time to make life easier on-site and choose a product , homeowners are ready to embrace .
Missed us at ExCeL ? We have agreed to do it all
again with Homebuilding & Renovating at Harrogate from the 2nd to the 4th of November STAND B483 .
If you have a flat roof extension project in mind come along and see how the slim-line , thermally efficient Korniche is the perfect solution to bring more light into homes .
Korniche Roof Lantern is nominated for the 2018 National Fenestration Awards in the Category of Conservatory Roof Fabricator – Take a moment to vote for this exceptional , well-engineered product .
