As we enter 2018, many of us will be looking to make some home improvements, perhaps it’s a new conservatory, new windows or a new front door; yet with the expense of Christmas and other purchases to make in the coming year, paying for these might seem impossible.

But with the Ken Rhodes Group, it is possible to purchase a new conservatory or a beautiful orangery, new windows or a new porch and door without paying a single penny until 2019.

“In January, not many people will have the funds to make home improvements.” says company director Ken Rhodes.

“Some customers may prefer to spread the cost of their new home improvements.”

Ken Rhodes Group offers two flexible finance packages so you can still get to make changes to your home now, in time for spring and summer.

The firm’s ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ option is open to all customers on orders between £1,000 and £50,000.

“It’s a great way for people to either save over the course of the coming year, or they may be waiting for a bonus at the end of the year,” says Mr Rhodes.

The ‘Low Rate Option’ spreads the cost over five or 10 years at 4.9% APR and 5.9% APR.

“We replace a customer’s existing conservatory roof with a synthetic slate tile roof converting the space into a whole new room for that be can be used all year round. People aren’t tending to move as much due to house prices becoming more expensive so they are improving what they have. We have become a conservatory roof specialist in the area for this roofing system.”

Ken Rhodes also provides flush casement windows, a new window system designed to replicate the 19th century flush sash timber window.

It is ideal for use in conservation areas due to its authentic appearance. This authentic design is also appealing to any homeowner who wants a top-end luxury window brand.

Ken Rhodes uses the new Residence Collection which comes with beautifully bespoke hardware such as monkey tail and pear drop handles to add some classic detail to your home. Every Residence window is made bespoke to your requirements and you can customise everything including the style, colour and hardware.

Mr Rhodes explained: “Every window is different. A skilled craftsman will manufacture your window, to your sizes and specification. These windows’ mechanical joints require finesse and attention and can only be executed with hand finishing by individuals who are masters of their trade.”

All of Ken Rhodes installations offer the highest security for total peace of mind and its quality materials and workmanship come with a comprehensive 15-year insurance-backed guarantee.

The firm is also accredited by the consumer watchdog Which? Trusted Trader Scheme.

Mr Rhodes added: “We have always believed in putting the customer first, and are only too familiar with the tarnished reputation the double-glazing industry has. As a family business which has been part of the community for more than 35 years, we pride ourselves on honest prices, friendly expert advice and unrivalled customer service.”
