Before you hire a window company…
You must be aware of the following information:[mk_custom_list style=”e26a” icon_color=”#00c8d7″ margin_bottom=“2” align=”none”]
- Make sure you hire a recommended company that listens
It’s important that a company will listen and take on board what you want. They should be able to offer advice on the best products for you. Ask friends and families to recommend companies that they have used.
- Make Sure The Company Uses British Standard Approved Products
Ensure the products have the appropriate kite marks Insurance Backed Warranty Protection – Make sure the company’s warranty is insurance backed on all of its products and workmanship.
- Competent person schemes – Building Regulation Certification
When having windows and doors replaced homeowners must comply with current building regulations. An installer registered with one of the Competent Person Schemes (like Fensa) will issue this certificate for you – otherwise your council will need to come and check the work (for a fee).
- NVQ Qualified Fitters
Ask the company to tell you about their fitters, how long have they worked for them, what training have they had? Realistic prices – Although you get what you pay for try and avoid companies that provide over inflated prices, special sales gimmicks or discounts if you sign on the night – obtain a couple of quotes, and compare like for like, prices should be competitive.
- After care service
Check that the company has the necessary back up and support in place should a problem arise.
- Efficient products
Get the company to show you their energy certifications where applicable.
Make sure your units are going to be internally glazed and have a high quality locking specification.
Make sure the company can offer at least 10 years of experience. With all this information to hand you should be able to make an informed choice and choose the right company to carry out your work.[/mk_custom_list]
