Huge success for our newest product ‘desktop appraisals for solar panel installations’

A week of marketing has paid off at Brewsters, the launch of our new Desktop Appraisal for Solar PV installations has exceeded our expectations.

The product is aimed mainly at MCS accredited contractors and has proven a great hit. Not only does the homeowner get peace of mind that their roof has been professionally checked and structurally appraised but the installer also shows compliance with guidelines in the case of an MCS audit.

The key to the success has definitely been the low fee Brewsters are charging for the desk top appraisal. The installers provide us with the photographs, measurements and roof member sizes and our time is spent doing what we do best, calculating the suitability of roofs to accept the increased weight from PV panels rather than racing around country. We’ve also prepared a number of commercial products although a site visit is often required and a number of schools and factories have already been inspected.

 For more information on our latest desktop products which start from £75.00 + VAT or commercial roof appraisals for PV systems, please contact the Brewsters Sales Team on 0800 027 5130.

Walking, (or should that be limping), the Sandstone Trail in Cheshire

Filed under: Company News, Staff News — Tags: , — jacqui @ 2:32 pm

Dave, Helen, Debbie and I gathered at the start of the Sandstone Trail in Frodsham with eight partners and friends where spirits were high.  We met up with the “Warrington Four” after a search for the elusive toilets which were found hiding in a local Costa Coffee, (probably the most expensive wee ever, as everyone bought a coffee at the same time!)
