The CORGI Fenestration Installer Scheme provides over twice as many services and support than that offered by other glazing sector Competent Person Schemes (FENSA, CERTASS, Assure etc) or other relevant trade bodies.
These extra services include: The CORGI Fenestration Quality Mark, recognised by 74% of consumers*; RateYourInstallation, a free TripAdvisor type rating system; the ability to notify many other fenestration related home improvement products; the CORGI Fenestration Skills Card linked back to a web-based National Skills Register; company head office audits; a risk-based inspection regime which means fewer inspections; operates throughout the UK; operates a Code of Conduct; works with the qualifications issuing body GQA; requires a qualified workforce; is Each Home Counts futureproofed.
This raft of extras sits beside the standard glazing Competent Person Scheme offering, which is also provided by CORGI Fenestration – Homeowner Certificate; online self-certification; relevant financial protection (the equivalent of an IBG); marketing support; van stickers.
“We want to dispel the myth that CORGI Fenestration is an expensive option,” commented CORGI Fenestration Chief Operating Officer, Jacqui Crawford. “Even without the extras such as RateYourInstallation and our proprietary risk-based inspection system – the Quality Standards Indicator - CORGI Fenestration registration offers good value for money. With them, and all the other extras, it’s a package which represents exceptional value.”
CORGI Fenestration is the only quality mark in the glazing sector that recognises best practice along the whole supply chain, and across such a broad spectrum of products and services. It allows those businesses that are committed to being the best to shout about this achievement to their trade customers and ultimately to the UK homeowner – by using the CORGI Fenestration brand, recognised by 74% of consumers*.
Every part of the supply chain can achieve CORGI Fenestration Registration – from system houses, fabricators, component and IGU manufacturers through to installers and repair and maintenance services. Both commercial and domestic building sectors are covered.
Registered companies show a commitment to trust, reliability, expertise and quality across company management, manufacturing, customer service, qualifications, the best qualified staff and their continuing professional development.
Products covered are: windows, roof windows, roof lights, doors, roof lanterns, conservatories, orangeries, glass extensions, sun rooms, tiled roof glass extensions, replacement conservatory roofs, porches, shop fronts, curtain walls, facias, bargeboards, cladding, soffits, guttering and downpipes.
