hits 1million

The GGF has announced that its consumer advice website,, has hit one million page views in just over three years since it was set up. was set up in 2016 to help homeowners make a more informed choice when selecting windows, doors and conservatories. Since then, the GGF says the site has seen ‘remarkable growth’ with over 600,000 users exploring products and advice from 24 sectors within the glass and glazing industry.

James Lee, GGF director of external affairs, commented, “ has been an incredible journey. Its creation came from GGF members who asked for a consumer friendly website because they felt the GGF website was (and still is) a trade focused website. So, we set it up and followed a smart search engine optimisation strategy and clear digital marketing plan that included social media, national competitions and adding consumer friendly features. The site is now attracting almost quarter of a million homeowners each year, looking specifically for independent advice on glass and glazing products and installation.”

Since it started, has also added many features including the GGF energy savings calculator that allows homeowners to calculate their fuel and money savings when replacing their windows and doors. The site is also home to the national competition, Window with a View, which boasts winning views from windows from high profile venues such as the Liverpool Museum of Art and Tower Bridge.

James concluded: “The site has many features, but one of its most useful is our fully searchable directory of over 300 consumer facing companies. All are GGF members and follow our approved Consumer Code of Practice, so consumers know that when they are using the directory, they will find the best installers in their area. Our plans for 2019 are three-fold, to increase the content on, get even more homeowners to the site and ultimately redirect them to GGF Member companies.”
