Three firms have spoken of how their sales have taken off since becoming Atlas roof installers and what it means to be winners in the Atlas Installation of the Month competition.

QKS Ltd, Glasshouse Ltd and Ewenny Home Improvements are the latest round of winners in the popular Installation of the Month competition and they have all seen their businesses accelerate since becoming installers of the best looking glazed roof system available on the market.

QKS Ltd was one of the first firms to adopt the Atlas lantern and the business has grown by around 50% since, as owner Nick Clipston explains: “We were keen to broaden our portfolio and began looking for an ultra-slim roof lantern around five years ago. Shortly after, we became an Atlas installer because we think the Atlas lantern is the best out there. When we started, we were installing just five lanterns a year but now the number of installations has multiplied and our business has grown at a rapid rate.”

The latest award-winning project from QKS is a double extension on a property in Nassington, near Peterborough, which features two Atlas lanterns. “We originally installed one extension, complete with Atlas roof, and the homeowner was so impressed that they decided to add another extension on the other side of their home,“ says Nick. “The Atlas roof was the only one they wanted for phase two. The completed project looks incredible and the owners are thrilled, so much so in fact that they recommended us and the Atlas roof to their parents! We love working with the Atlas lantern and we’re always proud to complete installations that then go on to win industry awards.”

Becoming an Atlas installer four years ago has helped Bridgend-based Ewenny Home Improvements grow by nearly 35%. Director Andrew Edwards says: “We’ve installed almost 100 Atlas roofs now and they are always an easy sell because homeowners favour the low sightlines of the product and trust the Atlas brand name. The Atlas roof has helped my business to achieve profitable growth because there are no compromises with it – the design, performance and ease of fitting are all second to none.”

Ewenny completed an Atlas lantern installation on a new build property in Porthcawl that recently won in the Installation of the Month competition. “We were tasked with making a light, bright kitchen diner on this property and the sleek Atlas lantern and bi-folding doors were the natural choice,” says Andrew. “The finished result is just what the client wanted and we’re delighted to win the Atlas monthly competition. Being an award-winning installer shows potential customers that we only do quality installations and we always use the best products for them.”

Cardiff-based Glasshouse Ltd were undaunted by the previously high standard of entries for the Installation of the Month contest and demonstrated this to full effect by winning with its very first entry. The acclaimed project showed off the team’s impressive design skills by showcasing three Atlas Flat Rooflights to flood a new kitchen/diner extension with natural light. Since becoming an Atlas installer, Glasshouse has installed nearly 200 Atlas roofs and has experienced a particularly high demand for these contemporary-style flat rooflights.

Shaun Armstrong, owner of Glasshouse Ltd, says: “Architects and homeowners love the Atlas Flat Rooflight and this installation shows exactly why. The original design for this extension incorporated a mono pitched lean to style roof but we knew we could enhance the look further by utilising a more bespoke look and therefore switched to the Atlas Flat Rooflights. We are very proud to win an award for this project, particularly as it was the first time we’d entered. This victory gives us a great head start into the New Year and we’re expecting 2019 to be really successful for us.”
