James Oliver Is A FENSA Member If You Want A Trusted Installer

It often comes as a shock to first-time buyers of windows and doors as to how many window and door installers there are locally and nationally to install these products. It’s a crowded market, to say the least. 

Aluminium Windows

The foremost aim of any homeowner looking for a window and door installer is to find a company who will do the best possible job. But with so many of them in existence, how do you know who to trust?

You can ask around for recommendations and check out impartial reviews online. But for a guaranteed confirmation of a quality installer, one that knows what they’re doing and works to stringent industry standards, choose a FENSA registered installer every time. 

Set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation in 2002, the Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme is government-authorised and regulates window and door companies, ensuring they deliver best practice and fit their products in accordance with building regulations. 

James Oliver has received this coveted industry accreditation, but we really had to earn it. 

FENSA’s tough team of assessors put our work firmly under the microscope before crowning us as FENSA accredited, watching our installers in person to make sure they fitted windows and doors to the highest level. 

The accreditation can be withdrawn by FENSA if they believe our standards to have dropped below what they expect of all their approved members, which they determine through regular monitoring. We refuse to let that happen though as being FENSA accredited is such a powerful marketing and sales tool for our business and a ringing industry endorsement that you would never want to lose. 

A separate reason a customer should only appoint a FENSA installer is because they are the only window and door companies permitted to issue FENSA certificates. 

This document is very important as it acknowledges that a window or door installation complies with building regulations and has been certified with a local authority. 


Head over to the official FENSA website to get the full picture of why it’s in your interests to use a FENSA member and no-one else.
