“Hi, I’m George Clarke, product ambassador for Truedor from IG Doors.
I believe that Composite Doors are one of the best products on the market today when it comes to quickly and dramatically changing the appearance and the feel of your home, and nothing does so more than colour”.
“Whether you live in a Victorian terrace, a 1930’s semi-detached, a cottage or a truly modern development, your front door is the most immediately visible feature of your home and is the thing which says most about you”.
“For so many years the range of colours available was really limited, but thankfully that’s no longer the case. Now there is an enormous range of colours to choose from, specifically introduced to suit your taste and whatever type of property you live in”.
“Exploring the options available can give you ideas for your home you hadn’t thought of before or even realised were possible”.
“I always say to home-owners that it is important to understand the crucial role a front door plays in the look and feel of the home and how important it should be to them – every time they come home of an evening, or friends and neighbours come to the door it is an opportunity for them to feel that the door is entirely personal to them, a reflection of their personality. It should give them a real sense of pride, and a real sense of ownership”.
“Meaningful choice in terms of colour is really important, especially in today’s world where people have a real sense of who they are and what kind of statement they want to make about themselves – having freedom of choice to choose the colour they want for their front door enables this to happen and is a great starting point for any changes people want to make to their home”.

introduction independent network 01282 473170
North Lakes NLG Window Systems has been quick to take full advantage of its Independent Network membership, having joined the pioneering installer support organisation just six months ago.
Recently rebranded from Network VEKA, Independent Network recognised North Lakes with one of two ‘Best New Member’ awards at its annual Members’ Weekend. The Penrith-based company has been full of praise for the benefits that membership has brought, such as training; marketing support and heightened customer confidence.
“It’s early days for us, but we’re extremely pleased that we decided to join and look forward to further exploring the support available in future”
Martin Smith, who owns and operates the company alongside his wife Lindsey, commented: “Independent Network really helps to make the most of being a VEKA installer.
“Having such a comprehensive grasp on what customers think about our work, including word-for-word testimonials has been a very useful marketing tool”, Martin continues. “We’ve showcased the info on our website and social media, and find it a great way to illustrate that we’re not just making empty claims about the quality of our work!”
“Since joining, we’ve attended various training days, and feel more than ever that we’re fully ‘up to speed’ with industry advances as a result. The courses also provide a great opportunity to meet other member companies and get a sense of the culture of the network.
Karen Lund, VEKA Group’s Head of Partner Programmes commented: “North Lakes has enjoyed an auspicious start, becoming one of our Best New Members for its broad engagement and enthusiasm. We congratulate them on the completion of their newly-developed showroom, and look forward to a long and fruitful future together.”
