This year has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people arranging home improvements, however, when it comes to your roof, there is one company you can rely on, Planwell.
The Buckie-based roofing supplier and manufacturer celebrated its 30th anniversary last year so has more than three decades of experience in helping customers to replace their ageing or damaged roofs.
Family-owned Planwell Roofing Supplies was established in 1989 as part of the John Duncan Group and is still run by the Duncan brothers, Murray and Mark.
Planwell began marketing and selling metal roofing, and buying in pre-made roofing sheets to supply with the flashings which they manufactured. Then 10 years later, in 1999, the company invested £1million on building a new factory and purchasing a computerised plant and equipment help expand the business.
That was crucial to its success, as it then became a ‘roofing manufacturer’, doing everything in-house.
In the years that followed, Planwell continued to expand and improve its range of roofing products meaning it now provides an even greater choice at more competitive prices for the customer.
As well as supplying quality products, it’s the firm’s excellent customer service that encourages people to recommend Planwell time and time again. With roofing solutions that are built to last, a Planwell roof comes with a written guarantee, so you should never need to replace it.
It’s not just roofs for the home, as Planwell also offer roofing solution for garages, caravans, community halls, and business premises.
There are many reasons customers choose Planwell, but one of the main reasons is because they offer made-to-measure modern and attractive new roofs in nine colours, that will give any property a fresh new look. Cost is another reason homeowners choose Planwell. The prices for roofing materials are very competitive, starting at just £7.90 (plus VAT) per square metre while you can upgrade your property and fit an insulated roof from just £18.00 (plus VAT) per square metre.
Besides what it can offer in terms of customer service and range/quality of products, Planwell’s guarantee is also very appealing. In fact, a Planwell roof is maintenance-free for up to 40 years, while its roof sheets have a life expectancy of more than 40 years!
Mark Duncan, director of Planwell, said: “One of our customers once said to me ‘Do you realise you are selling one of the very few products that actually lasts a lifetime?’ Because, when you buy other products, like a new television, they are designed to be replaced every 5-10 years, but our Permaroof metal roofing lasts a lifetime.
“And that is very true because we use Swedish metal so the quality is the best and all our customers have the benefit of a written guarantee as standard. If you look at all the roofs in Scandinavia, Australia and Chile, for example, they are all made of metal.”
So if you have been carrying out some home improvement projects during the pandemic of 2020, and feel your roof is looking rather neglected, or that it may not withstand another stormy winter, then perhaps it is time to call the experts at Planwell?
