Insurance Backed Guarantee
When having home improvement works carried out on your property, it is essential to make sure an insurance policy is in place and given to you, by way of business, as part of the overall sale to protect you from unforeseeable circumstances.
This the best for of protection. However, there are many companies that ‘offer’ this service and do not give it, leaving many homeowners believing they are covered when they are not.
An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is valuable protection in the unlikely event of the Consumer Protection Association member ceasing to trade due to liquidation or bankruptcy.
The guarantee given by the CPA installing company is valid the whole time they are trading and so any defects should be corrected by them.
If, due to the liquidation, receivership, administration or winding up of the business due to bankruptcy, state retirement or death of the principal(s), the company no longer exists, faults appearing after they cease to trade will be covered by the IBG.
Depending on the work undertaken the IBG is available for a period of up to 10 years and is backed by an authorised insurer.
"Can I just say I am very pleased with the appearance of my new flat roof, you have done a professional job and I will recommend you to anyone looking for a roofing contractor."− Mr Lumb, Hook
"We were delighted by the works undertaken to replace our old roof with new Keymer tiles. The four guys you had on site were real craftsmen with a very high level of skill and experience, as well as commitment to go the extra distance to deliver a first class job. The new roof has transformed our house and given rise to considerable favourable comment from our neighbours. Thanks again."− Mr & Mrs Allen, Shinfield
