What Is A FENSA Accreditation? Jargon Buster

When shopping around for home improvement companies, you may have come across the FENSA logo frequently used on their website. Do you know what it means? If not, we advise you to read up on it, because it is extremely important.

Here at Clearview, we are proud to be a well-established FENSA Registered Member. If you are unfamiliar with what it is and its significance, let us educate you…

Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme (FENSA)

FENSA is a Competent Person Scheme established by the Glass and Glazing Federation, together with a number of other industry bodies.

They are in charge of distributing certificates to all homeowners, when a FENSA recognised home improvement specialist installs windows or doors, to prove they complied with all current building regulations.

All homeowners who have had new windows and doors installed by a FENSA recognised specialist, after April 2002, should have received a FENSA certificate. This needs to be securely filed away, as it is needed to prove that the windows and doors in your house are fitted to the very highest standard, if you ever decide to sell.

Clearview is regularly assessed, and continuously provides the highest standard of installation expected of all FENSA Registered Members. Customer feedback has a huge role in determining whether we remain a FENSA Registered Member.

Insurance Backed Guarantee

Choosing a FENSA registered company doesn’t leave you short of incentives. You will be issued with an Insurance Backed Guarantee at the conclusion of any work or project. This is very significant for a number of reasons.

Should any other FENSA member, cease to trade, if you have your Insurance Backed Guarantee, your investment is protected. This Insurance Backed Guarantee runs for 10 years.
