FENSA stands for the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme and was set up to help window and door companies comply to the governments building regulations for windows and doors. When replacing your windows and doors you must ensure you comply with current thermal performance and Building Regulation, when using a FENSA approved company you will receive a certificate to show that your new windows meet all regulations, this means you will not need a secondary assessment from the local authority, saving you around £250.
