Each and every day throughout the UK, thousands of consumers face the unenviable task of choosing aWindow/Conservatory Company to carry out work at their property.

Choosing the wrong trades person/company could result in a nightmare for the consumer with a property being damaged, the consumer being out of pocket and litigation ensuing, that is if the builder has not 'scarpered'.

As Private Practice Building Surveyors, under our parent company, Hanley Amos Stewart, Building Surveyors, every week we carry out 3-5 Expert Reports on defective building works and each and every week we meet distraught and disillusioned consumers who quite often ask us, "why are trades people unregulated and why is there not a register of reputable companies?"

And for many years there has been no answer to the consumers plea, until now, and now the answer is - Choose a MWCIA Member.

We are strict, very strict.

It is true, something must be done to protect and advertise the consumer. And that something is the MWCIA.

The sole purpose of forming the MWCIA in the first place, was to advise and protect the consumer.
You and your home deserves the best.

The MWCIA members are the best in the UK.
You will receive quality, reliability and professionalism… as you should!
