Continuing this two part look at symbols of accreditation for contractors, part 1 being on our previous blog. A few very prominent bodies exist which go some way towards informing the consumer. As most people know there are many unscrupulous firms who would happily separate a person from their hard earned cash, while delivering substandard products or services. One of the things that can assist in the decision whether or not to employ a tradesman or company is what sort of certification they hold.
FENSA – Customers know that if a company or tradesman is FENSA registered they are usually in good hands. This is the leading body relating to replacement windows and doors, which offers consumers greater protection through building regulation compliance. Companies which are members of FENSA have been vetted, approved, regularly inspected and assessed. Automatic certification of the clients property once worked on is included. There is a 5-10 year insurance guarantee on every installation which falls under the FENSA remit.
Gas Safe Register – Gas Safe Register replaced Corgi as the gas registration body for the UK. All gas engineers must by law be on the Gas Safe Register in order to legally carry out work involving gas. Public safety is the number one priority of this body, and they are dedicated to investigating and prosecuting anybody working illegally. Raising consumer awareness about gas safety is another important aspect of their work, and one which can avoid emergency situations.
