Following consumer and industry demand, FENSA is delighted to announce it has launched a scheme in Scotland, with the first FENSA Scotland certificates expected to be issued to homeowners from July.
The FENSA Scotland scheme is for the installation of replacement windows and doors, and it launches as Scottish installers have recommenced work again following lockdown. The scheme is part of FENSA’s mission to improve window and door replacements across the UK, by professionalising installers and protecting homeowners.
FENSA Scotland is a voluntary scheme that will be tailored specifically to Scottish building standards, which differ to those in England and Wales. Membership will be open to any installation businesses that undertake work in Scotland, regardless of where the company itself may be based.
When homeowners choose a FENSA Approved Installer, they receive a FENSA certificate when the work is complete: all the proof they need of a job done right. This certifies the work complies with building regulations and verifies that every FENSA Approved Installer’s guarantee is backed by insurance. Each FENSA Approved Installer, from large national brands to small local companies, is assessed regularly by FENSA to ensure its compliance to building regulations is continually maintained.
“Being FENSA-Approved is now a regular requirement seen in pre-contractual agreements for both commercial and domestic work,” said Chris Beedel, FENSA’s Director of Membership.” So we’re delighted to be extending our scheme into Scotland following both consumer and trade demand for it.”
“We’re also thrilled to announce Clydebuilt Home Improvements, Everest 2020 Ltd and RRS Improvements Ltd as among the first installation companies to join FENSA Scotland. For all our FENSA Approved Installers we aim to provide a real boost to the installation industry in Scotland at this crucial time. We look forward to issuing our first certificates in Scotland and give businesses and homeowners there the same assurance and confidence that a FENSA certification has done in England and Wales for almost 20 years.”
Everest 2020 Ltd Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Billy Grant, said “Everest 2020 Ltd is proud to be one of the first companies to join FENSA Scotland. As a national home improvements company Everest are delighted that our customers in Scotland now have the same assurance and peace of mind of the highly recognised FENSA certificate as those in England and Wales.”
“As one of Scotland’s leading home improvement companies, Clydebuilt Home Improvements is excited to be a part of FENSA’s Scotland expansion,” said Antony Walsh, Clydebuilt Home Improvement’s Operations Director. “FENSA accreditation will provide our customers the peace of mind they need when selecting home improvement services for their homes.”
RRS Improvements Ltd Managing Director, Andy Fleming said, “We are delighted to be one of the first companies in Scotland to become members of FENSA Scotland. This is an important additional layer of security and assurance for our customers.”
