Kestrel service benefits to social housing specifiers

Kestrel has a 16-year track record of supplying low maintenance PVC-UE RooflineCladding and Windowline products to the Registered Social Landlords in Housing Associations and Local Authorities.

Specifying different products required for refurbishing and building homes is difficult because there are so many. It's ddifficult as you can't be experts in everything you specify. Kestrel's role therefore goes beyond manufacturer to one of consultant, driven by our understanding of your needs to achieve the most cost effective way and sustainable way to supply fit for purpose products. We achieve this by:

  • Working with clients to understand individual requirements to ensure the most cost effective, fit for purpose sustainable solutions
  • Working with you prior to specification to analyse housing stock to understand and anticipate any future problems and solve them before they arise
  • Working with clients and sub contractors to ensure that installation is correct. Where there is doubt, we offer training to the installation teams whether subcontract or DLOs, as well as the specifier so they are empowered through better understanding of the process. We recently worked with one housing association who engaged us to train its existing DLO to install our products, thus sustaining and even increasing local and resident employment
  • Offering regular site visits and reporting back on progress and quality
  • Engaging with the entire supply chain to ensure continuity of supply
  • Helping to leave a supply chain legacy by using future proofed products (calcium organic), offering training to residents for City and Guild Level enabling them to work on projects and advising on recycling solutions
