According to the recently published Insight Market Report there are 20,651 general builders now actively involved in home improvements, refurbishments and extensions, almost all of which require windows, doors or conservatories.
“Some of these builders are now installing more windows and doors than some double glazing firms” says Insight’s sales manager Sonia Punter; “and the trend is only upwards.”
Most builders are sourcing their products from the growing network of trade counter depots that have sprung up in recent years, but the problem has always been how to find them. “Most builders fly under the radar. They don’t appear on marketing databases and many simply operate using their mobile number and a white van, preferring to operate by word of mouth referrals.”
Until recently trade suppliers have always struggled to engage with this market, however after two years of research Insight Data has released a specialist database of general builders and it is proving a runaway success.
“This is the one and only comprehensive database of active general builders in the UK complete with contact names, full postal addresses, telephone numbers (landline and mobile) and the largest email list of builders in the UK. It even lists the type of work builders undertake from home improvements to small new-build projects” explains Sonia.
The database is available through Salestracker, the online database from Insight Data. The data is updated live in real-time so users are always working with the most up-to-date information, and currently stands at over 20,000 contacts with over 12,000 verified email addresses.
