FENSA works with thousands of double glazing contractors in England and Wales. In choosing a FENSA double glazing registered company the consumer is protected when purchasing double glazing for their home.

Why greater protection with a FENSA registered firm?
1. Regular assessment of FENSA double glazing companies by an 'independent inspection body'
2. 5 - 10 year insurance backed guarantee available to the homeowner on every installation
3. FENSA Building Regulations certificate dispatched to the homeowner for every registered installation as proof of compliance
4. Your property will be compliant with Building Regulations without the added cost and time of arranging assessment by Building Control

So basically if you go through a fensa company your covered even if it is just one window should anything go wrong with it.
