County Is A Member Of FENSA - Why This Is Significant


When searching for window and door specialists in the Kent and Sussex areas, and further afield, you will be shocked at quite how many companies there are to choose from. 

How do you know which company to choose?

Checking out online reviews is always a good start, and asking friends and family for anyone they recommend would be worthwhile so that you find an installer that you know you can trust. 

A further big tip is to look out for installers that have industry accreditations. The window and door industry’s most authoritative trade association is FENSA (the Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme). 

To give you some background on FENSA, it was established in 2002 by the Glass and Glazing Federation, and is responsible for regulating window and door installers.

You have to demonstrate total and consistent excellence to be accepted as a FENSA member, following best practice when installing window and door products at customers’ homes and working to current building regulations. 

Earning a FENSA accreditation is one of our proudest achievements. 

It wasn’t easy, but was certainly worth it as it shows to people that County ranks amongst the country’s very best installers – it’s an elite club. 

We were assessed over a long period by FENSA and they were firmly satisfied that our work standards are tremendously high. They re-visit us regularly. 

If we ever let these standards slip, FENSA has the authority to withdraw our membership, but we do everything in our power to ensure this won’t happen. 

Another advantage to using a FENSA member is that you will receive a FENSA certificate at the conclusion of the installation. 

You need this document when selling your home as it proves that the installation meets building regulations and has been certified with your local authority. A non-FENSA member is not authorised to issue this certificate. 

Put your home in the very safe hands of County – The Home Improvers if you need quality new windows and doors that will stand the test of time. Talk to one of our experts HERE
