In today’s glazing industry, there are certain trust factors for home improvements that South East homeowners should be looking out for before hiring a double-glazing company to enhance their home. There are various ways to do this, but we find the most effective method is to maintain a plethora of well-known accreditation memberships that are highly trusted and respected within the UK the glazing industry. Secure an honest and reliable contractor by looking out for the following accreditations.
Trust factors for home improvements
The most prestigious industry accreditation that SEH BAC hold is The Master Window & Conservatory Installers Association (MWCIA). Incredibly difficult to be awarded with this accolade, the MWCIA has close links with a number of Consumer Organisations. So, when consumers are searching for reputable, honest tradespeople they’re directed to their Local MWCIA member. The MWCIA actively recognises the best tradespeople that the industry has to offer, so you can understand why we are so proud of this accreditation.
FENSA stands for the Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme and is the longest established Competent Person Scheme, enabling companies to self-certify compliance of Building Regulations. This means that your home improvements often won’t need separate approval from your Local Authority. It’s imperative that your installer is registered with FENSA. At SEH BAC, our Certified FENSA Company Number is 11448. Find or check your local FENSA Installer with this helpful online tool.
The Glass and Glazing Federation is the industry authority for the glass and glazing industry, ensuring best practice is always followed by UK glazing companies and setting health, safety & technical standards. GFF membership also protects South East homeowners when they make a purchase, with guaranteed GGF consumer protection. When consumers use a GGF member company (like SEH BAC!) they have essential peace of mind that they’re dealing with an elite, established and trusted company that adheres to the highest professional standards and installs the highest quality products.

TrustMark is a government endorsed scheme that checks tradespeople with an aim of raising industry standards. Only companies with good trading practices, customer service and technical competence are accredited – like SEH BAC!
The Glazing Arbitration Scheme (TGAS) is the primary alternative dispute resolution scheme, offering total impartiality for both installers and consumers. It’s very unlikely that anything will go wrong with an SEH BAC installation, however, you have complete peace of mind that if something were to go wrong you’d be fully covered; safe in the knowledge that the issue would be dealt with in a balanced, fair and swift manner.
7. Trading Standards Institute Approved
When you see the Trading Standards Institute Approved logo (TSI), you know that the glazing company has agreed to provide good standards of service. This includes clear and concise information before and after a contract is signed, alongside a clear complaints’ procedure.
8. Ultra Installer
As members of the Ultraframe Installer Scheme, this means that we have been inspected and assessed on the quality of our installation practices by Ultraframe. Known for their exceptionally high standards, when homeowners see this endorsement it sets them apart from other installers in quality, performance and service.
