EYG shortlisted in ‘Best Conservatory’ category in national installer awards

20th December 2022

EYG has been shortlisted for a major award which recognises the best installers of home improvements products nationally.

We have been named as finalists in the prestigious GGP Installer Awards – for Best Conservatory or Orangery Installation under £35,000.

EYG was recognised for an installation we carried our earlier this year at the home of Darren Kendrew, from east Yorkshire.

Unfortunately, by the time he contacted us Mr Kendrew had already paid out over £11,500 to two separate building firms who both went bust – losing his money in the process.

Difficult time

He had paid deposits for a single-storey extension to create an open plan kitchen and living area.

EYG stepped in to rescue the plan on a depleted budget, and we managed to build a new conservatory which had the same effect and impact as the original extension plan.

We demolished an existing old draughty conservatory, and built a new one on the same foundations.

Our conservatory team levelled the floor and removed internal doors to create one large space, and by adding an insulated solid tiled roof we made the entire space warm and useable all-year-round.

Glowing testimonial

Mr Kendrew submitted a glowing testimonial in support of our awards submission, saying: “We are delighted with the finished conservatory, the EYG team were also brilliant throughout.

“From the initial meeting with sales manager Jeremey, he understood the circumstances on why we had approached EYG and the loss we had already seen on our finances towards the project of our dreams, due to the building contractors failing to deliver the initial project.

“Whilst we were unable to progress with our initial extension, Jeremey worked closely with us to provide a solution for both our dreams and delivering a design which would make our home more comfortable both in winter and summer, whilst ensuring our project was tailored to our budget.

“The build went very well, all stages commencing on time and the finish was both on time and with no additional costs.

“The new kitchen installed by us along with the perfect conservatory has truly transformed our home,” he said.

He added: “We would be delighted for you if you win, but either way you certainly won for us and we have no hesitation in recommending EYG to anyone.”

"Strong competition"

EYG’s Managing Director Nick Ward said: “We are delighted to have been short-listed for the GGP Installer Awards, which shine a light on the best installations and home improvement firms from across the UK.

“We have some strong competition in our category, and it is great to be recognised alongside them.

“We pride ourselves on our 50 years in business, and consistently receive fantastic customer reviews. Being a finalist in a prestigious national awards is the cherry on the cake, in what has been another fantastic year in business for us.

“I would also like to add that we are really pleased that the Kendrew family got their dream home transformation, after what must have been a difficult time for them.”

The GGP Installer Awards is run by Glass and Glazing Products, the industry’s leading news magazine.

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner in Manchester in March 2023.
