A local home improvement company is celebrating five years as a member of the prestigious Consumer Protection Association (CPA).

Priory Kitchen Studio, which is based in Penwortham, has been an accredited member of the CPA – which is a leading industry body that promotes best practice amongst tradesmen and the public – for five years and had this achievement recognised by receiving a certificate from the Association.

The CPA has been in business for twenty two years and is recognised as the number one resource for connecting accredited home improvement contractors with consumers.

It is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and provides insurance backed guarantees (IBGs) and deposit protection to installers carrying out home improvements.

Only companies that are the best of the best and meet the CPA’s rigorous high standards are granted membership.
With members regularly vetted by the CPA, achieving five years of membership is considered a big accolade in the home improvement industry.

Jeremy Brett, who is a Director at the CPA, comments: “Being a CPA member for five years is a major achievement, as only the best home improvement companies are granted membership year after year.

“Priory Kitchen Studio is a fine example of a company doing things properly in the Home Improvement Industry and working hard to raise standards and offer the best levels of service and workmanship. The CPA looks forward to working with Priory Kitchen Studio in the years ahead.”

Jeff Smith, who is Director of Priory Kitchen Studio, comments: “I am delighted to have received recognition for being a member for five years. This means we are doing things right and thanks to the CPA we are winning more and more business each year. Consumer’s trust companies that are CPA members and this helps us to win business.
“The fact we’ve been members for five years shows just how effective it is.”

The CPA is recognised by consumers as one of the most trusted resources for finding accredited and vetted installers.

The CPA also offer its members a host of beneficial schemes such as marketing support; sales training help; and quarterly assessment reports that tell members what their customers think about the work they are doing.
The CPA is also know to fight the corner of its members and regularly meets with MPs and appears in the national press, discussing issues such as VAT and women in construction.
