Anglian guarantees your driveway for 5 years. We use 65mm blocks for added strength, so your driveway will look great and last for years to come. Our first impressions are guaranteed to last. The existing ground is removed to allow for the installation of a firm foundation. The edge restraint is then laid on a concrete foundation around the perimeter - this will ensure that our entire installation is fully restrained, from the sub-base upwards. A Geotextile Membrane is laid, to prevent fine particle migration. The sub base is now installed, in two stages. MOT type 6 material, which is used in road construction, is laid and compacted to a depth of 75mm. This is repeated to create a firm, level surface. A sharp sand ‘laying course’ is screeded to a level depth of 55mm, prepared until it is almost as smooth as a billiard table. Once all the invisible groundwork’s are completed we begin laying the blockpaving. All of the above steps ensure that your Anglian driveway is built to last.
A reputable regional company like Clearview recognises the importance of showrooms with local staff and installation teams. You will feel at ease in the knowledge you are dealing with staff who genuinely care about you and your home improvement project. Clearview’s staff can also advise you on similar installations near you which we can arrange for you to see as well as giving you the opportunity to meet the team behind the brand. In our experience, an impressive showroom display fills in the gaps in the buying journey for many of our customers.
5. Court action When the new double glazing installer has completed the work, write to the original double glazer claiming the money you have had to spend, and explaining exactly what work was done. If it does not pay up, you will have to start court proceedings to claim back the money. If the amount involved is less than the small claims limit (£65,555 in England and Wales and £8,555 in Scotland and Northern Ireland), you will be able to use the small claims court. For more information, read our guide to the small claims court.

The majority of Home Contents Insurance providers offer their policyholders a discount for having a satisfactory level of security at the home including key operated locks on accessible widows and an approved locking mechanism on their doors. Whilst we cannot comment on every insurance provider’s acceptance criteria we are satisfied that the security measures within our windows and doors exceed the requirements of the vast majority.

Having certificates for your property with the necessary accreditations is important, especially if you plan to sell your property in future. If you have made replacements on doors and windows, it will boost the value of your property if you provide valid installation certificates. However, only the full frame and doors or window replacements can be certified. It is also important to note that as much as the certifications will offer compliance, the finish and quality will depend on the contractor.
Like FENSA, Certass provides a means for installers to make installations in accordance with the provided Building Regulations.

For products from companies with the certification, Certass provides a Window Energy Rating that is easy to understand and puts all the expectations out there.

Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme is one of the most common authorities tasked with issuing certificates showing that windows and double glazing are compliant with Building Regulations and thermal performance standards. With FENSA, you need not register your new installation with the local authority as it is done for you. It also comes with a supported insurance guarantee on any replacements. This certification also works across different local authorities within Wales and England if you have other properties there.
National companies generally do not have a local showroom which means you are limited to the product knowledge and design insight of the sales person in your home. Equally, it is virtually impossible to see the ‘installation quality’ first hand when you are limited to a window sample on the floor or even just photos on a laptop. National companies argue that by not investing in showrooms they keep their prices down. When quoting against them we have not found this to be the case. If you claimed to have the ‘best’ wouldn’t you want to show it off?

Before embarking on any home improvement project, you should understand that thorough research is a vital aspect of this process. You should look at a number of key issues before purchasing a new conservatory or window to avoid instances of disappointment during and after the projects. One of the most important things to look at keenly is the accreditations under the belt of the companies at play. Accreditations, such as CERTASS, and Plastics Window Federation, are just some of the accrediations which Select Home Windows has accrued.
