Who should fit my replacement windows?
If you are living in England and Wales, the best way to make sure that your replacement windows are fitted properly and to regulation standards you will need to choose an installer who is registered with one of the official Competent Person schemes such as FENSA, Certass or Network Veka Installers. Window installers who are registered with one of these will give you a certificate when they have finished saying that the windows have been fitted in compliance with all regulations. If you don’t use a registered installer you will have to seek building control approval before window installation.
