Improve your home and your lifestyle

17th May

One of the South East’s largest and most successful home improvement companies is based right here in Heathfield.

With an ethos of offering the right products, made-to-measure in the right style at the right price, County – The Home Improvers is going from strength to strength.

Definitely worth a visit is the impressive supercentre in Ghyll Road Industrial Estate, Heathfield, and the showrooms in Tunbridge Wells and Haywards Heath also showcase a huge range of products.

Family owned since 1982, the company specialises in supplying and installing windows, doors, conservatories and orangeries and can help with customers’ design, planning and building needs.

Managing Director and former civil engineer Mike Evans, who lives locally, is proud to point out that the company has an enviable reputation for supplying top-quality products that give excellent value for money for homeowners.

He explains: “One of the most noticeable things about our industry over recent years is the huge increase in the choice of products and wide range of materials. There is everything from traditional timber, through to PVC, timber effect PVC and aluminium. So it can sometimes be quite confusing for customers to choose which product is right for them. At County we have an excellent team of trained sales advisors who give totally impartial advice to help customers choose the right product at the right price. Most importantly, products need to suit the lifestyle of the homeowner.”

County supplies and installs products from a variety of quality manufacturers including: Evolution; Extreme; Conservatory Outlet; Timber Windows and Origin.

Tastes in home improvements have changed recently with many homeowners electing to improve rather than move as it is less stressful and more cost-effective.

Mike adds: “A conservatory used to simply be a way of enjoying a view of the garden, but nowadays conservatories and orangeries have become rooms where the newly achieved space gives the occupants space to enhance their lifestyle as they choose. Solid roofs have become very popular too as increased thermal efficiency means a conservatory or orangery with a solid roof can make an invaluable addition to a home. Add a bifold door and suddenly you can bring the outside indoors.”

County’s investment in on-going staff training continues through the whole company. Only experienced and qualified fitters are engaged to ensure that installations go as smoothly as possible. A dedicated advisor will give you design and planning advice, and if needed their building division management will liaise with the local council on your behalf, if required, to ensure your home improvement project is totally compliant and stress free.

All County’s fitters are MTC qualified and the company is a member of Government’s Trustmark Scheme. County The Home Improvers is a member of FENSA (Registered No. 10485) – The industry Gold Standard for Building Regulations compliance in replacement windows and doors. County is also a member of the Glass and Glazing Federation. For work completed after January 2019 there is a unique 20-year guarantee on their new ‘Extreme™’ PVC windows and Origin Bifold doors .

The surge in home improvements has been recently helped by the fall in inflation meaning more home owners are better able to afford the cost of a home improvement project. County offers low-cost finance schemes to help customers get their project under way as soon as possible. There are different choices including low-rate finance options and all are unsecured.
