Take the hassle out of hiring a reliable tradesperson, with NAPIT

Finding trustworthy tradespeople is a stressful experience. After all, no one wants to be taken for a ride by a rogue trader. If you want to find the right person for the job, we are here to help.

Poor installation work endangers lives

We know the safety of you and your household is your top priority. Sub-standard work not only risks the integrity of your property, it also puts lives in danger.

Your safety is our priority

Just like you, we want to keep you and your household safe. We know that the best way to achieve this is by helping you to ensure that any work undertaken in your home is compliant with the Building Regulations. Members of NAPIT’s Competent Person Scheme are regularly assessed to ensure their competence and can self-certify the compliance of their work with the Building Regulations in England and Wales.

Why choose a NAPIT registered installer?

NAPIT registered installers are:

  •  Able to complete work safely and to legally required standards
  •  Regularly assessed to ensure their ongoing competence
  •  Capable of working to the very latest health and safety regulations
  •  Able to provide you with the necessary certificates to demonstrate the regulatory compliance of the work they do. These certificates may be requested by tenants, insurance providers and solicitors and may be needed if you are looking to let or come to sell your property.

Worried about the cost?

Using a NAPIT registered installer can save you time and money by helping you avoid building control fees. They are able to provide the certificates you may need when you come to sell your home, and notify the relevant authority too.

Helping you access Government incentives

Did you know you that you can gain access to Government financial incentives such as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS), Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), Energy Company Obligation (ECO), by using a NAPIT registered installer. Installers registered under our renewables and energy efficiency measures (the Microgeneration and EEM certification schemes) are also able to self-certify their own work, saving you and time and money.

Supporting our members to support you

You must make sure that any work carried out is completed under a written contract and notified to NAPIT. This ensures you have access to support and guidance should anything go wrong, including mediation, a work quality guarantee (where applicable) and advice should you wish to take further action in the event of a dispute.
