All casement windows are fully sealed thereby improving the energy efficiency of a home and a reduction in heat loss means you save money on energy bills.   They are easy to open and close and due to their configuration offer excellent ventilation.

Casement windows give an unobstructed view when open and when closed plus they allow a lot of light into any room. They can also be angled to catch breezes, so helping to circulate air around the house.

Are your window installers members of the Competent Person Scheme?

Yes. All of our installers are registered with a Competent Person Scheme (FENSA, BM Trada or Certass) which qualifies them to carry out specific types of work in accordance with Building regulations. They will notify the local authority of the work and issue you with certificate of compliance with Building Regulations. This ensures the work is safe and meets energy efficient standards.

If you do not receive a certificate within 30 days of completion, firstly talk to your installer, failing that contact the Competent Person Scheme that your installer is registered with and they may be able to help you resolve this.

This certification is a legal requirement for homeowners and will be important when you come to sell your home as you may be asked to provide certificates of compliance with the Building Regulations.

Please note: If you do not use a registered installer then you will have to submit a building notice or full plans application and pay a fee to have a Building Control Body come and inspect the work you have carried out.
