What it actually means to have an installer who is EAS approved

By Tarriq Ibrahim 13 December 2017

When putting your property in the hands of a home improvement specialist it’s nice to have conclusive evidence of their experience, after all, you wouldn’t just invite anybody into your house.

Unfortunately, there are still a few rogue traders out there and the last thing you want to do is to unwittingly give them responsibility for fitting your new lifestyle extension or replacement windows and doors.

The Excellence as Standard programme will hopefully help to remove such companies from the industry and give you definitive peace of mind as we’re entirely dedicated to providing homeowners with the utmost excellence – a drive that 100s of reputable installers have already gotten behind.

Excellence as Standard redefines the benchmark in the home improvement industry and assures householders of absolute quality as each of our installers shares our commitment to raising standards.

Here’s an overview of why you should always choose an EAS installer

CE marked products

CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). It is a legal requirement that products are CE marked.

Building Regulations approved

Building Regulations are minimum standards for design, construction and alterations to virtually every building.

They must be adhered to, otherwise there is the possibility of you being forced to make alterations or completely remove the relevant product.

All home improvements supplied by an Excellence as Standard installer comply with current Building Regulations.

Insurance Backed Guarantee

In the event of an installer going out of business you will be anxious to know whether the products they fitted are still covered.

An Insurance Backed Guarantee protects you for up to 10 years if your chosen company ceases to trade during the intervening period.

Expert Training

An installer will only be accepted onto the Excellence as Standard programme if it commits to continuous training via the EAS Academy.

The Academy delivers training to approved companies covering sales, after sales, surveys and installation. This makes them extremely proficient and knowledgeable in all areas of their respective businesses.
