HEADWAY DOORS & WINDOWS LTD signs up to The Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme backed by Nick Ross
HEADWAY DOORS & WINDOWS LTD is one of the first businesses in the area to be awarded accreditation by the first independent regulatory body for the double-glazing and conservatory industry.
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS) has been launched with the backing of the people's consumer champion, Nick Ross, to improve the industry's much-maligned reputation and help consumers make the right choice when choosing an installer with whom to place their order.
The former BBC Crimewatch and Watchdog presenter will be the ambassador of the Ombudsman scheme, which will provide protection for homeowners installing windows, doors and conservatories.
At Headway we are delighted to have achieved founding member status with DGCOS, which offers consumers access to high quality, vetted installers. The backing of Nick Ross means that home owners can be reassured that this is not another toothless trade body.
DGCOS is a scheme that consumers can rely on. There are lots of trade associations in the double glazing sector, but DGCOS actually has powerful mechanisms in place to robustly police members and ensure consumers get a fair deal.
Homeowners buying from DGCOS members will receive a 'Peace of Mind' pack explaining that they will have the protection of the Ombudsman Scheme behind them in addition to a 10 year guarantee, a Deposit Protection Certificate and a 10 year Insurance Backed Guarantee.
In a first for consumer protection, The DGCOS Compensation Fund will pay out all bona fide claims to compensate homeowners where traders fail to live up to their promises and the Ombudsman has ruled in their favour.
Nick Ross says: "Consumer agencies champion Ombudsman schemes because they give customers real protection. DGCOS is based on similar schemes which have been successful in other industries. Restoring confidence is important for consumers and all good contractors and DGCOS can quickly rebuild trust within the industry and mark out the good guys from the cowboys.
"With DGCOS, consumers get accredited installers, independently backed guarantees (even if the firm refuses to help you or goes out of business), free access to industry inspectors, professional mediators and - if you're still unsatisfied - a highly regarded Ombudsman who can settle your dispute with the power of the law behind him.
DGCOS founder Tony Pickup who also founded The Quality Assurance Association in 1996, a highly respected trade association attracting over 1250 contractors from all aspects of home improvement and construction, said:
"It's long been a major issue in the UK installation sector that trade bodies which promise to help don't have any teeth and are not much real help when homeowners need it.
Mr Pickup added: "We are delighted that Nick Ross has agreed to be our ambassador. Nick is a hugely respected journalist with the highest of standards, and he has satisfied himself that DGCOS is exactly what the sector needs to restore consumer confidence and promote good traders."
