We Are Certified with FENSA… Registration Number: 27725

Precision Windows Are Certified Installers And Registered with FENSA.

Here is why you should look for the FENSA logo when having replacement windows and doors
fitted in your property:

What is FENSA?
FENSA stands for the Fenestration Self-Assessment scheme. It has been set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and other industry bodies, with Government encouragement www.communities.gov.uk, in response to new Building Regulations.

Fensa are the industry standard for replacement window and door installers self-certifying compliance with the building regulations.

Save Time And Costs:
You do not have to register your window or door installation with the local authority yourself. Not only is the FENSA approach much faster and easier – it will also save you up to £250!

Compliance with the Building Regulations without the added cost and time of arranging assessment by Building Control

If you own properties across different local authorities – for consistency of quality and price, you are able to use the same FENSA installer for all installations, as they can work in all Local Authority jurisdictions

Confidence in FENSA Installers:
FENSA is the brand trusted by all local authorities, industry and government. An independent report commissioned by the Government found FENSA to be the most successful of all competent person schemes to date in the UK, across all industries.

Vetting: All FENSA registered companies are continually re-assessed by an independent inspection body to ensure consistency of Building Regulations adherence and service.

Nearly 9000 companies nationwide have joined FENSA which include glazing companies, builders, national and smaller home improvements companies, local authorities, housing associations, property developers. If all these companies trust and use FENSA, consumers can too. If all these companies trust FENSA, homeowners can too.

FENSA does not demand any specific brand of insurance from its installers – homeowners and installers have freedom of choice over insurance providers whose policies are underwritten by ‘different’ insurance companies (FENSA is not insurance-led)

FENSA proactively protects consumers from the cowboys – not only by withholding the scheme from those unable to pass FENSA’s independent assessments; but also by reporting to Local Authorities and Trading Standards companies who erroneously claim FENSA registration, to enable prosecution.

Customers are able to provide a rating score for installers on the feedback form.

All Work Carried Out By A FENSA Installer Must:
1. Give ‘Deposit Protection’ (where deposit is taken)

2. Give a 5 – 10 year guarantee

3. Offer ‘insurance backed guarantee’ for added peace of mind to cover the installer’s own guarantee.

FENSA Building Regulations & WER Certificate:
This will be sent by FENSA directly to you to demonstrate compliance, vital in the event you need to sell your house

If you have lost your FENSA certificate – it is quick and simple to re-order online from this website, or simply call the team.

The FENSA team can offer support to your solicitor when tracing missing certificates during the sale of your property.

Replacement certificates for historical installations carried out since this requirement has existed within Building Regulations can also be reordered.

Improving your home can be expensive at the best of times, but when you have not properly looked into the contractor you are hiring you could be left high and dry, facing severe financial losses.

Each and every CPA member is thoroughly checked and approved to ensure they meet the exacting standards of best practices within their chosen trade. Only then are they eligible to join the CPA membership scheme that requires them to display consistent craftsmanship and excellent customer service.

The CPA was established to fulfil two functions: to assist in the elimination of unscrupulous trades from the home improvement market and to protect the consumer by regulating and raising standards of operation.

The CPA offer two forms of Protection Service:
1. CPA Insurance Backed Guarantee

2. CPA Deposit Protection

CPA Insurance Backed Guarantee:
PROTECTING YOUR GUARANTEE FOR UP TO 10 YEARS. When having home improvement works carried out on your property, it is essential to make sure an insurance policy is in place and given to you, by way of business, as part of the overall sale to protect you from unforseeable circumstances.

This is the best form of protection. However, there are many companies that only ‘offer’ this service and do not give it, leaving many homeowners believing they are covered when they are not.

An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is valuable protection in the unlikely event of the Consumer Protection Association member ceasing to trade due to liquidation or bankruptcy. The guarantee given by the CPA installing company is valid the whole time they are trading and so any defects should be corrected by them.

If, due to the liquidation, receivership, administration or winding up of the business due to bankruptcy, state retirement or death of the principal(s), the company no longer exists, faults appearing after they cease to trade will be covered by the IBG. Depending on the work undertaken the IBG is available for a period up to 10 years and is backed by an authorised insurer.

Important Notice:
You MUST apply for your Insurance Backed Guarantee, otherwise you will not be covered. Once work has been completed ask the CPA member for an Insurance Backed Guarantee form. You must apply for this within 28 days of the contract being completed to your entire satisfaction and once you have paid the CPA member. When we have processed your application, you will be sent an Insurance Certificate. Without this certificate you are not insured, therefore, if you do not receive it within 28 days, contact us.

CPA Deposit Protection:
BE PROTECTED FROM THE WORD “GO”.

Many trades require to take a deposit before starting a job, this is usual practice. Making sure your deposit is insured is essential, if it is not and the company fails you will lose your money. All CPA Approved companies who take a deposit from you can offer you this protection.

The CPA deposit protection scheme is insurance for the deposit you pay to secure the work to be carried out on your home.

This insurance covers a deposit of up to 25% of the agreed price with the company or £7,500 which ever is the lesser.

The policy covers you for a period of up to 90 days from the date you pay your deposit. If you have paid a deposit to a company who then ceases to trade due to liquidation, receivership, administration or winding up the business due to bankruptcy, state retirement or death of the principal(s), your deposit is either refunded to you in full, or the work is completed by another company at the balance agreed price.

Important Notice:
You MUST register your deposit, otherwise you will not be covered. When paying your deposit, you must ask the CPAmember for a Deposit Registration form. This must be returned to us by recorded delivery within 7 days.

Check-A-Trade
Membership Number: 2752

We are recommended, vetted and monitored by Checkatrade, so you can be sure of excellent and regulated workmanship.

Here is why you should look for the Check-A-Trade logo when having replacement windows
and doors fitted in your property:

What is Check-A-Trade?
When you need work doing around your home, finding reputable tradesmen can be difficult. Can you really trust them? Checkatrade is a free service that gives you the background information you need to make a confident decision. Check-a-trade offer you a directory of trades and services who have been vetted to our high standards, for example by verifying their insurance, qualifications and professional memberships. Not only that, but they also monitor their work on an ongoing basis by collecting feedback directly from their customers.

Since 1998 they have collected 415,391 customer reports which give you the facts about the strengths and weaknesses of our listed companies. You know what you are getting. Recommendation, reputation, and a standard you can trust.

How Does Check-a-trade Work?
When you need a tradesman, it is hard to know if you are getting someone trustworthy.

The telephone directory is a lottery. A friend’s recommendation is well-meaning, but only tells you the tradesman did a good job once. What you need is a good reputation that you can check for yourself.

You can phone Checkatrade’s Trade Appraisal Line or view details of their many recommended, vetted and monitored businesses online.

Search for what you need in your area. Every business has been vetted and monitored: read all their feedback and results for yourself, including what their past customers think, and what work they have completed.

After a job well done, customers fill out a customer feedback card to let Check-a-trade know how the work went. Your feedback and comments go straight into their database to keep the public up to speed on who they can trust.

Why Does Check-a-trade Work?
The success of Checkatrade lies in the power of partnership.

Consumers want to find tradesmen on whom they can rely to do a good job. Trades and services want the phone to be ringing with genuine customers who trust them from the start. Checkatrade brings the two together.

Years ago neighbours would recommend a local trader over the garden fence, and through word of mouth a reputation was built. These days it can be harder for the word to spread and the threat of rogue traders has increased.

Check-a-trade has brought word of mouth recommendation back for the twenty-first century using modern technology and the Internet.

They rely on consumers to give them feedback on their member trades and services. This information is presented online for all to see. They rely on member businesses to maintain the Checkatrade standard, knowing that they will be publicly exposed if they do not. Check-a-trade continue to display honestly the results of consumer feedback and our vetting procedure.

This three-way partnership is a powerful combination to solve the problem of rogue traders across the UK.

80% of Our Customers Come Through Recommendation!

We give you the best value for money available and top quality products at affordable prices.

Which is why we are particularly proud of the fact that over 80% of our customers come through recommendation.

Just take a look at these Testimonials from some of our delighted customers.
October 2006 – Peter Crawford, Barnham ‘I want to write to express my complete satisfaction with the work carried out at my mother’s house in Barnham.

The new Rehau upv-c windows were a perfect choice. Their moulded profiles complement the cottage character of my mother’s home. We particularly appreciate the care taken by your expert team to seal the trims unobtrusively so that there is no visible silicone to discolour. The final effect is first class.

Your fitters were totally considerate to my mother’s advanced age and her special requirements. The egress hinges and additional retaining stays are a great bonus. The fitters took great care and left the house in a very clean condition.

Thank you and Nigel in your office for your personal attention. I am delighted we choose Precision to do the work, and warmly recommend your firm to any other people wanting a similar high standard service.’

December 2006 – Mr J Gower, Littlehampton. ‘I wish to place on record my complete satisfaction of the product installed by your company. I have received several comments as to how nice the porch looks.

Would you please thank Biagio and Scott, your two fitters for the efforts they put in, in order to complete the work that day. They worked in appalling conditions.

There were very high winds & squally showers that day, yet despite this, their workmanship and their attitude in the face of adversity was of a very high standard.’

July 2006 – Mr & Mrs Hathway, East Preston ‘We just wanted to thank you for your fast efficient first class service.

We were very impressed with your no pressure approach to sales on such an important service. Speed, price and quality were top rate.

The window fitters were very kind and polite young men, nothing being to much bother. My new windows have made a massive difference to my home.’

Mr & Mrs J Lewis, Rustington ‘Both my wife and I would like to thank you, for all the work you have carried out.

From when we first asked you to come and price for the work, until the completion, you and your staff have shown us courtesy, also your planning to the fine detail for all jobs carried out including, soffits and fascias, replacement of white cladding, to hung tiles, take down and rebuild porch, also replace all the upvc double glazing.

Both of us say a big thank you and please pass our thank’s to all of your staff’.

Frequently Asked Questions…

If you have a question that is not shown, please contact us online or you can call us free on 0800 074 0840 – our advice is free and without any obligation to buy.

How long will the visit from your double glazing designer take?
All appointments are totally free and should last no longer than 1 hour. It may however take a little longer when considering conservatories so the designer can take down all measurements and discuss the various options available.
How long will it take to install new windows and doors?
Every job is different!  In all honesty a job done by Precison Windows will take as long as necessary to ensure you get the best job possible!

New properties tend to be quicker and easier installations than older properties, and it very much depends upon how many windows and doors we are installing.

Usually, a full house of windows can take 3-4 days to install, but please speak to us directly for a full estimate and delivery timescales.

Do you sell energy rated windows in other colours apart from white?
Yes, PSA Windows can supply A – C rated replacement windows in any colour. There may be slight differences in the glass specification and frame thickness between white UPVC windows and foiled windows – freephone 0800 074 0840 and we’ll be happy to help.
I hear a lot about energy rated windows! What does 'A' rated windows mean?
A rated windows are the most energy efficient windows available in the UK as defined by the BFRC Rating Scheme.

This is the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and is recognised within the Building Regulations as a method to show compliance for your replacement windows installation. Window Energy Ratings use a consumer-friendly traffic-light style A-G ratings guide similar to that used on ‘white’ goods (such as fridges, freezers, washing machines etc…).

This ratings label can be used by you to make more informed choices about the energy efficiency of the windows you are looking to purchase.

Is Precision Windows a member of FENSA?
Precision Windows are members of FENSA (Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) Registered No. 27725. FENSA has been set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and other industry bodies with Government encouragement in response to the current Building Regulations for England and Wales.

When having windows and doors replaced homeowners must comply with current thermal performance standards and ensure that they get a certificate of compliance from FENSA or from Local Authority Building Control.

FENSA also enables companies that install replacement windows and doors to self certify compliance under these Building Regulations.

Is Precision Windows licensed by the CPA
Yes, Precision Windows are licensed by the CPA (Consumer Protection Association) Registered No. 246. The CPA is a Financial Services Authority (FSA) authorised organisation which offers consumers valuable protection when purchasing home improvements.

A CPA member is a company that has met strict criteria which ensures they are thoroughly professional, reliable, provide ethical products and services and can prove they have the ability to produce the highest quality of work.

When buying your windows through Precision Windows you are covered by the CPA’s Deposit Indemnity and Insurance Backed Guarantee giving you complete peace of mind that you are in good hands.

How much will I save on my energy bills if I replace my old windows?
According to the BFRC, if your home is single glazed or your double glazing was installed prior to April 2002 then you could be losing more heat than necessary, and therefore money, literally out of the window. However, by switching to Energy Efficient Windows you can save energy and reduce your household bills by as much as £461 per year.

If you live in a single glazed house and install Energy Efficient Windows, you could reduce the energy you use by 0.30 tonnes or 18% – almost reaching the Government target of 20% reduction per household. Add to this other simple energy saving measures – such as insulating your home and turning down the central heating by 1° C – and you could be making a real impact on reducing your carbon footprint.

The GGF (Glass and Glazing Federation) has created a carbon calculator which allows homeowners to find out how much they can save on their energy bills and by how much they can reduce their carbon footprint through the installation of Energy Efficient Windows. It also tells homeowners how much more they could save by installing the highest rated Energy Efficient Windows (rated ‘A’) over others levels (‘B’ to ‘G’).

How much will it cost me to replace my windows and doors?
Every home is different – the shape and size of everyone’s windows and doors are not the same too! Our different homes and styles means we all have different requirements.

Because every home is different, all our windows and doors are tailor-made specially for your home and because we offer such a wide range of styles, openings and fittings we will need to visit your home to measure up before we can give you an accurate idea of how much it will cost.

You can book a home visit usually within 24 hours by calling our freephone 0800 074 0840.

Or if you prefer you can book a free design consultation online. Simply take a moment entering the details on our ‘Appointment Booking Form’. We will then contact you to arrange a visit to your home or in our Worthing office.

What is the difference between PVC Windows, PVCu Windows & UPVC Windows?
There is no difference whatsoever and to be absolutely correct it is PVC-U and neither of the above!

In the UK UPVC changed it’s name to PVCU in the late 1980’s to fall in line with other European countries. It seems that they were all calling it call it PVC-U because European languages mostly place the noun (being PVC in this case) before the adjective (U).

The ‘PVC’ part of it stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride. The ‘U’ stands for Un-plasticised. Poly Vinyl Chloride, which we know as every day ‘PVC’ is modified and can then be used in the manufacture of products such as bags, shoes and also fake leather. It is the use of this material which has made us familiar with the abbreviation ‘PVC’.

Pure PVC-U is not quite suitable for replacement windows and doors. A small amount of additives are required, necessary to provide longevity, high weather and UV resistance, and also to achieve a white colour making it ideal to use for the production of windows and doors.

What colours do your replacement windows and doors come in?
Our replacement windows and doors come in a range of colours and whilst the standard manufactured colour for UPVC is white, we also do another eight types of coloured windows.

In addition to the universally popular brilliant white windows, you can also choose traditional wood grains in the rich, dark elegance of Rosewood or the delightful lighter Golden Oak option. You can even choose from our fabulous new range comprising of cream, whitegrain, green, grey, rustic cherry and also black.

All the windows are also available in combinations with white so you can have the outside of your home in a different colour to the inside, if you wish.

How long are your windows guaranteed for?
All our double glazing windows are guaranteed for 10 years.
Do you sell any wooden windows or timber products
No, we don’t sell windows or doors made from wood as we specialise in high grade UPVC & Aluminium, but we do actually have a range of realistic woodgrain effect windows that look just as good if not better timber windows!

If you would like the traditional look of timber but without the associated maintenance hassles like painting, rotting and warping of real wood, then our realistic wood effect windows are just for you and your home.
