According to recent reports, over 14,000 new homes were registered to be built in April, which is an increase of over 17% compared to the same time last year. These stats are from NHBC’s latest registration statistics and also show that more private sector houses have been registered in this period.

In more good news, completions were also up 4% this year compared to last year as well.

In the rolling quarter of February to April, over 40,000 houses were registered which is very similar to the amount of homes built last year. Key to this however, and for DPR, is that the region of Yorkshire & Humberside saw an 18% increase for registrations.

As everyone knows, every home requires a solid and well installed roof and DPR have been helping local builders across the region for many years.

NHBC Chief Executive Mike Quinton was very optimistic about the figures and said: “April’s new home figures show that the industry enjoyed a successful month, with registration numbers well ahead of this time last year.

“For the rolling quarter, new home registration volumes are virtually identical, demonstrating further consolidation on last year’s levels.

“During these periods of sustained industry activity and production, NHBC remains committed to ensuring the highest possible quality in the standards of the UK’s new homes.”
