Five under 30-year-olds have been given a helping hand by local firm The Monmouthshire Window Company, as they begin their employment within the company.

The popular home-improvement team – based across Monmouthshire with showrooms in Caldicot and Raglan and its factory and head office in Newport – has expanded its roofing team, with Evaframe general manager Richard Shuck delighted to have some new faces joining the team.

“I like to invest in younger people and to give them that experience that they might be struggling to find,” he said.

“There are a lot of zero-hours contracts out there, and it’s usually the youngest people in the workforce that get hit, especially now we’re in the aftermath of coronavirus.

“As a local company operating in the Monmouthshire and Newport area, it’s important to us to help the younger generations by giving them skills and a trade, and we love having local lads and lasses on the team; as do our customers.”

The Monmouthshire Window Company first began trading around the time that some of its latest recruits were born, and like their newest additions, they’ve grown steadily over this period.

To learn more about the company’s wide range of products including bifold doors, sliding patio doors, uPVC flush casement windows, orangeries, conservatories, lantern roofs and aluminium window frames, call them or visit the website today. You are also able to visit the recently reopened showroom at Raglan’s Wyevale Garden Centre ahead of remaining sites opening their doors to the public from April 12 in line with coronavirus regulations.

The product the new team members will be getting to grips with however, is the increasingly popular Evaroof conservatory tiles, fabricated in their own Newport factory.

“These roofs transform conservatories and sun-rooms into all-round living spaces, bringing them back into use as another room of the house,” Richard said.

“They’ve grown in popularity hugely over the past 10 years as people can no longer afford to have parts of their homes that they rarely use. It’s an affordable and quick way to freshen up a home for people who perhaps can’t afford to move house, but can afford to upgrade their current property.”
