With an expanded door range, standard and bespoke colours and an on time, in full service promise in excess of 99%, along with online ordering, new trade partners are helping to fuel further success in Residor.
The impressive performance for Residor has also been bolstered by their unique £1,000 security guarantee, thanks to the specification of the 3 Star Ultion cylinder as standard. With a 3.6mm external door skin, this makes for one, if not the most secure GRP composite door in the UK at present, complying to the latest PAS 24 standards. There a 9 distinct door designs both traditional and contemporary, and 6 standard
colours including white, red, green, blue, black and the ever popular anthracite grey, along with 20 glass designs. There are also a further 250 RAL colours to choose from, allowing for a more bespoke door solution, along with hardware options in white, black, chrome, brushed and gold. Thanks to the considerable resources of sister brand Solidor, parent company DW3 Products Group and ultimately Masonite International, OTIF levels have been in excess of 99% for the last 2 years for Residor and that’s despite a period of sustained growth, as Gareth Busson head of sales and marketing for Solidor Group points out. He commented: ‘The proposition for Residor is overtly strong and based on product design, unrivalled security and the fact that we deliver on time, in full consistently, with the added benefit of online ordering through Residor Cloud. There’s also a marketing support programme including brochures, sample swatches and showroom support.’

This year’s ‘Innovation Home’ features Freefoam X-Wood Urban Cladding, prior to its release later in the year, to create a stunning exterior finish.
The whole house was built prior to the exhibition by Off Site Factory Homes in four separate ‘modules’, which were then transported to the show and constructed to form one house. Tony Fox, Director Off Site Factory Homes, explained how the process worked “ To create a durable and stable modular construction we need materials to be light, easy to handle and to withstand the rigors of transportation. Whilst this project was for a temporary building we apply the same criteria to permanent projects. We used Freefoam cladding last year and found it met all of our criteria and made perfect sense to use the new X-Wood Urban product for this year’s house. We found it really easy to work with and were very pleased with the finished results” Tony commented “Construction time using modular techniques can be nearly half that of
conventional methods. Building in a controlled environment, with less stoppages due to weather can really add up. Secondly we find that there is less wastage of materials with no exposure to bad weather. Finally there is a substantial amount of money to be saved when choosing modular over a conventional build, with a shorter programme time for each project and lower labour costs.”
   Colin St John, Freefoam Commercial Director summarised “We’re delighted to have been involved in this project which has allowed us to showcase the suitability of our products for modular construction methods. Whilst we’re aware that off-site construction will not solve all our housing needs we see it as a growing opportunity across our entire range. ”
