OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE
Welcome to Shard Installations where we take great pride in the work we do however large or small it is.
We believe that quality products are only worth their money if they have been installed correctly and to a high standard. This is why we provide a personal service with experienced fitters to ensure all work carried out is fitted to an exceptionally high standard with minimum disturbance to your household, and always leaving the installation clean and tidy.
We are a member of HIP which means your deposit and guarantee are always protected!
We are part of the FENSA Certification Competent Person Scheme so you can expect an extremely high standard of workmanship. As a FENSA registered installer all our customers will receive deposit protection, 10 year guarantee and an insurance policy so you’re in safe hands. All our fitters are MTC certified by FENSA.
Why choose a FENSA registered Company?
A FENSA registered company has undergone strict vetting procedures and is routinely inspected to ensure building regulation compliance is maintained. The FENSA scheme allows window and door installation companies that meet their stringent criteria to self-certify that their work complies with building regulations. It was set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation and meets with Central Government approval. A sample of the work of every installer is inspected by FENSA appointed inspectors to ensure standards are maintained and installers who fail to perform can be suspended or even excluded from the scheme. A FENSA registered fitter will notify FENSA of each installation when the fitting work is complete. FENSA make random checks to monitor the standard of installations, they also inform local authorities of all completed FENSA installations and issue certificates to householders confirming compliance.
In addition, by using a FENSA registered company you will benefit from reduced costs as you will avoid the need for local authority inspections and fees.
Any installation done by a company which is not registered by FENSA, including work done as a DIY project by a householder, needs full local authority approval under building regulations. The property owner is ultimately responsible for ensuring the work complies with building regulations. When a property is sold, the purchaser’s solicitor will ask for evidence that any replacement glazing installed after April 2002 complies with building regulations.
