What does Assure mean for homeowners?
How does a competent persons scheme benefit me?
When it comes to improving your home with new doors and windows, it can be a daunting task to choose a company you think you can trust.
How do you know the work will be carried out correctly?
Choosing an Assure-certified installer to complete the work means you can rest assured that the installation complies with Building Regulations which means that the work is legal and correct. You will be even be sent a certificate to prove it.
If you were to have work carried out that did not comply with Building Regulations, the installation would not be legal and could cause significant problems when you come to sell your home.
In recent years, it’s become clear that more and more homeowners are selecting highly-efficient windows in order to reduce their carbon footprint and minimise their heating bills.
When your windows are supplied and fitted by an Assure-certified installer, you know with absolute certainty that they carry the Window Energy Rating you specified when ordering.
One of the many conditions that installers must agree to before becoming Assure-certified, is that they must provide customers with independent financial support.
All installers and surveyors registered with Assure will be provided with branded ID cards so you know they are exactly who they claim and they have the appropriate Minimal Technical Competences. (MTCs).
Once your installation is complete you should expect a Building Compliance Certificate within 28 calendar days, if this does not arrive please contact your installer.
