Well first of all what do we mean by longevity? In the dictionary, longevity is defined as the “long existence or service”. For many in the business of kitchen and bathroom fitting this is not something that ranks high on the list – it’s aesthetic, ease of installation, even margin. For Richard and the rest of the TradesPro team, longevity is an absolutely key element of the bathroom and kitchen fitting service.
What does this mean in practice?
Again, there are three main ways that this tends to manifest itself.
Firstly, when placing flooring down that will last 50 years, the original copper turning green pipes won’t last as long and will result in a lower lasting power. The speed fit system that TradesPro utilises has a fifty year guarantee. By pushing the kitchen and bathroom lifespan to the max, the team consider every element how to preserve the room.
Secondly, once again, it also comes down to the design process. Because it is part of the TradesPro Way, to involve an interior designer as a core part of the design process, longevity of function and form is central to the outcome before a tool has been picked up. It is quite literally ‘designed in’ to the outcome as part of the process.
