We appreciate that windows and doors are a large investment, and your home is important to you. Our experts are there to advise and support you from the initial design consultation right through to installation.
You will be reassured to know that Just Windows and Doors have the following accreditations:
- FENSA registered
- GGF members
- Member of Government sponsored TrustMark scheme
- Registered installer of Rehau window systems
- Energy efficiency licence holder under BFRC (British Fenestration Ratings Council)
Just Windows and Doors was the very first company in the UK to be FENSA registered.
FENSA stands for the Federation Self-Assessment Scheme. It has been set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) – of which Just Windows and Doors are members, and other industry bodies with Government encouragement in response to the current Building Regulations for England and Wales. A FENSA registered company must meet strict criteria and is authorised to supply, install and certificate your windows and doors fully. It is really important that you get your new windows and doors fully certified at the time of installation to avoid problems should you sell your home in the future as you’ll be asked to produce the Building Regulations certification before your sale can proceed
The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is a trade association representing companies who make, supply or fit glass and glass related products. GGF members are required to protect consumers’ deposits, to raise standards in the industry and offer independent arbitration should the need arise.
TrustMark is a Government-backed scheme developed in tandem with key representatives of the home improvement industry, including Trade Associations and consumer-awareness groups. The purpose of TrustMark is to raise standards across the industry and provide a recognisable brand to both customers and installers alike. The scheme checks the firm’s technical skills, financial position and trading record before approving their inclusion in the database. A code of practice reinforces goals of good health and safety practice, sufficient insurance, and quality customer care.
The Rehau Window System: We underwent a stringent testing process to become a registered installer of the famous Rehau PVCu window, door and conservatory systems.
Energy Efficiency: we hold several energy efficiency licences under the BFRC (British Fenestration Ratings Council) organisation which is the main body looking after efficiency ratings for windows and doors.
Compliance With Building Regulations
New building regulations mean that, before you replace your windows with new double glazed or triplex glazed windows, you must either inform and pay the appropriate fee to the local authority before you begin work, or use a company who are registered under the FENSA scheme. If you do not inform the local authority before you begin work, it will cost you more if you tell them afterwards and you risk having to remove the windows and doors if they are not up to the required Building Regulations standard. You can also read our guide to planning permission for conservatories for further information on when you need to inform your local authority about changes to your home.
