No, generally we use our own staff who work for us on a full time basis. Some specialist trades such as electricians or heating engineers may be brought in for specific jobs.
Is my price fixed?
All online prices from our online quote engine are a guide price only and subject to change after a site visit or technical survey.

How long does it take to complete my order?
We normally work to a six-week lead time (but on occasion could be shortened) and as a guide, a team will usually fit two doors or four/five windows a day.

Different Companies have given me different advice on Building Regulations, especially on the need for structural supports. Who is correct?
For an independent view, speak to the Building Control of your Local Council or email FENSA.
See Fensa’s FAQs to find out the Building Regulations that are a legal requirement when replacing windows and doors (with fines for those who ignore these rules and future house sales at risk if improperly completed).
