Insurance Backed Guarantee
For Your Protection
This insurance underwrites the installing contractor's written guarantee, which is usually for defective workmanship and faulty materials. If the contractor ceases to trade, as specifically defined, the insurance will take the place of the guarantee for the remaining term of the cover.
Why Is Insurance Required?
A contractor will show confidence in their workmanship by giving a written guarantee ranging from between 12 months and 10 years for the majority of home-improvement contracts. If a fault arises during the guarantee period the contractor would normally call to fix the problem at no charge. However a contractor cannot give an absolute assurance as to the length of time they will be in business and therefore be able to honour their written guarantee. For this reason a professional contractor should always provide insurance cover which will honour their written guarantee, in the unlikely event of ceasing to trade.
