Insurance Backed Guarantees
Many Years of dedication
At Home Improvement Protection we’ve been providing our Insurance Backed Guarantee for many years. Over the years the Guarantee has been the badge of honour for tradespeople. Whilst discerning householders, eager to safeguard their investments in home improvements, have sought its reassuring protection.
Against the backdrop of recent economic uncertainties hitting many businesses, the law caught up. New ruling introduced in June 2014, means that all installers and home improvement contractors now have to offer an Insurance Backed Guarantee with every job they do.
Protection at the highest level
Authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority, Home Improvement Protection’s guarantees provide the best levels of insurance-backed warranty with:
- Cover up to 10 years
- No hassle of renewing, it’s continuous cover
- It’s also fully transferable to the new home owner
(subject to the T&C’s of the original installers guarantees)
- Covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
Beware, not all IBGs are the same
While there are many providers offering Insurance Backed Guarantees, not all are specialists in that area. And a closer inspection of their small print may reveal hidden clauses or jargon that might at least confuse or at worst not properly protect the consumer.
Home Improvement Protection takes the jargon away
We believe in honest, straight-talking policies. With our transparent cover we ensure that policy holders, and tradespeople offering them as part of their service, are clear on all the points of our insurance.
From a company you can trust
Established in 2009, Home Improvement Protection is the market leader in guarantee insurance and deposit protection.
As a leading light in helping the home improvement industry to raise its game we introduced the Home Improvement Protection – Approved Trade Member Scheme.
Each trader applying for membership is checked on their qualifications, expertise and financial security.
