Complaints Policy

Contact Us

Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited is committed to providing a quality service for its customers and partners working in an open and accountable way that builds the trust and respect of all our stakeholders. One of the ways in which we can continue to improve our service is by listening and responding to the views of our customers and partners, and in particular by responding positively to complaints, and do our best to respond as quickly as possible and put matters right if we can.

At Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited we recognise that a customer will be expressing their dissatisfaction and we define this in this way:  Complaint – This is where the customer is dissatisfied with the way in which their product was sold or described to them.   Claim – This is dissatisfaction with the product or fitting of that product.

Therefore we aim to ensure that:

  • Making a complaint or claim is as easy as possible;
  • We treat a complaint or claim as a clear expression of dissatisfaction with our service which calls for an immediate response;
  • We deal with it promptly, politely and, when appropriate, confidentially;
  • We respond in the right way – for example, with an explanation, or an apology where we have got things wrong, or information on any action taken etc.;
  • We learn from complaints and claims, use them to improve our service, and review annually our complaints policy and procedures.

We recognise that many concerns will be raised informally, and dealt with quickly. Our aims are to:

  • Resolve informal concerns quickly;
  • Keep matters low-key;
  • Enable mediation between the complainant and the individual to whom the complaint or claim has been referred.

An informal approach is appropriate when it can be achieved. But if concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved informally, then the formal complaints procedure should be followed.

Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited defines a complaint or claim as ‘any expression of dissatisfaction (with Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited, with a member of staff, or with a business partner) that relates to Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited and that requires a formal response’.

The formal complaints procedure is intended to ensure that all complaints and claims are handled fairly, consistently and wherever possible resolved to the complainant’s satisfaction.

Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited responsibility will be to:

  • Acknowledge the formal complaint in writing;
  • Respond within a stated period of time;
  • Deal reasonably and sensitively with the complaint;
  • Take action where appropriate.

A complainant’s responsibility is to:

  • Bring their complaint, in writing, to Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited attention normally within 8 weeks of the issue arising;
  • Raise concerns promptly and directly with a member of staff in Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited;
  • Explain the problem as clearly and as fully as possible, including any action taken to date;
  • Allow Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited  a reasonable time to deal with the matter;
  • Recognise that some circumstances may be beyond Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited’s control.

Responsibility for Action: All Staff of Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited.

Confidentiality: Except in exceptional circumstances, every attempt will be made to ensure that both the complainant and Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited maintain confidentiality. However the circumstances giving rise to the complaint may be such that it may not be possible to maintain confidentiality (with each complaint judged on its own merit). Should this be the case, the situation will be explained to the complainant.

Monitoring and Reporting: Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited will produce annually an anonymized report of complaints made and their resolution.

Formal Complaints Procedure

Stage 1

In the first instance, if you are unable to resolve the issue informally, you should write or email  to the member of staff who dealt with you, or their manager, so that he or she has a chance to put things right. If your complaint concerns a member of Classic PVC Home Improvements Limited staff, you should write formally to the individual concerned. In your letter you should set out the details of your complaint, the consequences for you as a result, and the remedy you are seeking.

You can expect your complaint to be acknowledged within 5 working days of receipt. You should get a response and an explanation within 28 working days.  

You can contact us to complain by calling 01554 779 036 or email sales@classic.uk.com or in writing to: 

Unit 5 Llanelli Gate, Dafen, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire SA14 8LQ.

Final Stage

Financial Ombudsman Service

The Financial Ombudsman Service provides a free, independent service for clients to solve disputes with not for profit debt advice providers.

The Financial Ombudsman Service will only step in once the bureau has had the opportunity to investigate matters, so please contact the bureau first.

If your complaint is about debt advice or if you were seeking advice about your credit record and you are not satisfied with the bureau’s final response or if eight weeks have passed since you first let the bureau know about your concerns, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman to review your complaint.
