Peace of mind services from Everlast
What is FENSA
FENSA is a government authorised Competent Person Scheme for the replacement of windows, doors, roof windows and roof lights in England and Wales against the relevant Building Regulations.
To become Fensa registered, Everlast have been regally and independently assessed for our ability to install replacement windows and doors in accordance with the relevant Building Regulations.
Buying Windows, Doors or Roof Windows, Heres What To Look Out For
Regardless of the type of work or size of the job, your chosen contractor should always complete the improvements in a timely manner to the highest possible standard. FENSA members such as Everlast Home Improvements have undergone stringent vetting processes to enable us to self-certify compliance with the relevant Building Regulations.
Get Everything In Writing
Any estimates, timeframes should all be agreed in writing, use written contracts and agree on a completion date, this avoids confusion later down the line.
Protect any Deposits or Upfront Payments
Approximately some 500 Home Improvements Companies go out of business every week and protecting your deposits or upfront payments is essential, even if you have references and know the contractor. If the company requires you to pay a deposit, ensure the company offers deposit indemnity and obtain proof or a receipt for any deposits paid.
The deposit should not exceed the indemnity value of the installer’s deposit protection insurance. For Added peace of mind you may opt for payment of your deposits via a credit card for added protection.
Ensure there is adequate insurance cover protecting your investment over a prolonged period and all the work is guaranteed? Any reputable company offers its’ own guarantee. However it is now a legal obligation that all domestic glazing installers registered with a scheme like FENSA provides insurance backing of the guarantee, this covers your installation should the company cease to trade within the life of that guarantee.
