All Change at Colourchange


Colourchange UPVC, a home improvement business at Rendlesham near Woodbridge has a new exciting future ahead.


Local entrepreneur and joint founder of the “Paddy and Scotts” coffee business, Paddy Bishopp has become a majority shareholder and will work alongside Daryl Collins who launched the business over ten years ago.


When first established Colourchange was one of the first companies to provide colouring services for windows and doors. They expanded, selling and installing windows, doors and conservatories and in 2018 was shortlisted in the East Anglian Business Awards as “One to Watch”.


Colourchange launched a division called Suffolk Conservatory in recognition of the growing demand for insulated, tiled conservatory roofs. A year later Colourchange was recognised by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership as one of the fastest growing companies in Norfolk and Suffolk.


In 2020, responding to customer demand, the business launched Office Garden Rooms. With the skills, products, supply chains and experience from 40 years in the building trade they added bespoke garden offices to the range of products offered.


Founder of Colourchange, Daryl Collins, explained that the business had grown substantially and that he had approached Headwater, specialists in selling and valuing businesses. “I recognised that I had built the business as far as I could, I needed to find a new owner that could take the business to the next level”


Paddy Bishopp, joint owner of Headwater was so impressed with the business that he decided to buy it himself. “Daryl has created a fabulous business, incredible products, a fantastic team and the timing was perfect for us all. Daryl remains a shareholder and continues to work in the business sharing his 40 years of building experience”.


Julian Evans, who has been working with Daryl in an advisory role for the past six years will be leading the team forward in his new role as Managing Director. Julian said “This is an exciting change, an amazing opportunity for the business. Over the past five years customer feedback consistently scores over 95/100. We have a choice of products to suit all customers, our skilled installers and paint team are exceptional. A fabulous base to start on a new era.”


When asked about future plans Julian said: “We will be growing and we will be recruiting more local people. Paddy and I want the business to be known as the best place to work for in the industry. We know that having the best people on our team means we will excel. A huge proportion of our business comes from recommendations, having the right people doing the right job delivers customer satisfaction.”
