The ultimate protection for you home improvement
HomePro, TrustMark Insurance Backed Guarantees protecting your investment
Although a home improvement is one of the safest forms of financial investment, there is one pitfall that is often overlooked – A WORTHLESS GUARANTEE.
Most contractors issue a guarantee upon the work they have carried out, the benefits of which are realised should you have reason to claim for faulty workmanship or material defects.
However… Thousands of contractors, large and small, cease to trade each year, be it for reasons of finance or even ill health. Guarantee periods can extend to as long as 10 years and much can happen to any business in that time, regardless of current stature. This is particularly true in today’s volatile business environment. If your chosen contractor were to cease trading you could be left with faulty goods, a guarantee of absolutely no value and a potential bill of THOUSANDS of pounds to rectify your problems.
Eliminate the Risk
The solution to this nagging fear is found with the HomePro TrustMark Insurance Backed Guarantee which matches the terms of the contractor’s original guarantee, should they no longer be in a position to honour a claim you may have to make.
HomePro should be able to provide an Insurance Backed Guarantee on your contractor’s work to protect your project from start to finish and beyond. Always remember to check this with your contractor prior to accepting a quote.
