It is easier for us to resolve your complaint if you make them promptly and directly to the service concerned. Please talk to a member of our staff about the service you are complaining about.
Please ensure to provide, when making a complaint:
- Full name, address, telephone number
- Details of your complaint
- What has gone wrong
- How you want the matter resolved
How long do you have to make a complaint?
You must make your complaint within six months of the event you wish to complain about or finding out that you have a reason to complain.
Under exceptional services, we may be able to accept a complaint after the expressed time limit. If you feel the time limit should not be applied to your complaint, please explain why.

What happens when I have complained?
All complaints will be recorded on our complaints database and we will tell you who will be dealing with your complaint.
The complaints process has two stages:
Stage 1 – Frontline Resolution
We aim to resolve complaints quickly and close to where we provided the service. This could mean an on-the-spot apology and explanation if something has clearly gone wrong and immediate action to resolve the problem.
We will give you our decision at Stage 1 within five (5) working days or less, unless the complaint is of a complex nature.
If we are unable to resolve your complaint at this stage, we will explain why. If you still remain dissatisfied you can ask for your complaint to be investigated further through Stage 2. You may choose to do this immediately or some time after you get your initial response. We can help you with making this request.
Stage 2 – Investigation
Stage 2 deals with two (2) types of complaints: those that have not been resolved at Stage 1 and those that are complex and require detailed investigation.
When using Stage 2, we will:
- Acknowledge receipt of your complaint within three (3) working days
- Discuss your complaint with you to understand why you remain dissatisfied and what outcome you are looking for
- Provide you with a full response to the complaint as soon as possible and within 20 working days
If our investigation will take longer than 20 working days, we will tell you. We will agree revised time limits with you and keep you updated on progress.
How to file a complaint with NAPIT (for complaints against scheme members)
If you remain dissatisfied after the results of your complaint investigation, you are within your rights to file a complaint with one of the leading Government schemes, NAPIT. NAPIT is an accredited membership scheme operator in the building services and fabric sector. They can review complaint resolutions made to the installer and take action if they believe the complaint was not resolved in a manner that achieves compliance.
