I really think we have to face it now, the fun of Christmas and the start of the New Year is well and truly over, and for now we only have the gloom of January to look forward to. In fact, today is meant to be the gloomiest day of the year!
Ok, but just before we really do say goodbye to 2010, I just wanted to let you know the results of the Christmas poll. If you remember, we asked if you could have any new windows for Christmas, what would you choose. The overwhelming choice, with 78% of the votes, was a skylight. I thought this was really interesting, but I suppose not that suprising. I have some skylights in my house and they are a really nice way to let the light in, and make your home bright and cheerful, without actually needing to switch a light on. This can be especially important in the winter months, when the sky itself can actually be a lovely bright white, and so you home can really benefit from a skylight.
Thanks to all of you who entered our fun Christmas poll. I just wanted to let you know about our next poll, which we could really do with your help on. We would like to know what you think about Trustmark. For those of you who don’t know, Trustmark is a Government-backed scheme developed across the home improvement industry. If you use a TrustMark status company, you know the company will have been thoroughly checked and assessed as to the standards of their work and the services they are able to provide to their customers. That means, you can find local, trustworthy & reliable tradesmen, operating to Government endorsed standards. FENSA has TrustMark status and you can search for a FENSA fitter who has TrustMark status too.
Therefore, we want to know what impact having a Trustmark licenced operator makes on your decision to hire a tradesman.
Please take a few seconds to answer the poll (below or in the sidebar) and, as usual, we will let you know the results in a month or so.
