Accreditations

As a company, we want to offer the reassurance that you have selected an accredited organisation to work within your household. We have taken it upon ourselves to obtain a number of accreditations which mean that we adhere to a set of professional guidelines at all times.

We are part of the Ultraframe Ultra Conservatory Installer Scheme, an elite group of quality contractors who have been independently assessed and approved by the BBA (British Board of Agrément).  We use 100% Ultraframe Conservatory components and conservatory systems and offer an independent Insurance Backed Guarantee for your peace of mind.

Fensa

FENSA stands for the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme. Following Government encouragement, FENSA has been set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and other industry bodies, in response to Building Regulations, for double glazing companies in England and Wales.

When replacing windows and doors, homeowners must comply with current thermal performance standards and ensure they get a certificate from FENSA or Local Authority Building Control. FENSA enables companies, such as Realistic, that install replacement windows and doors to self-certify compliance under these Building Regulations without the need for a separate assessment from Building Control, saving you money as our client.

Insurance-Backed Guarantee (IBG): A FENSA Registered Business must also give a guarantee or warranty covering the cost of completing rectification work in respect of defects and in the event of ceasing to trade, offer to back this guarantee with an independent insurance policy. This is called an Insurance-Backed Guarantee (IBG).

Realistic IBG is with the Glass and Glazing Federation Insurance, who are partners with FENSA, so you can be rest assured that you are in safe hands.

FENSA Building Regulations & WER Certificate:

Once your installation with Realistic has been completed, we will apply for your FENSA cerfitication on your behalf. Arriving within 4-6 weeks, 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 any queries regarding FENSA, and how Realistic are involved with the scheme, please do not hesitate to contact us, or visit the FENSA FAQ Page for more information.
