The Workmanship Guarantee Scheme has been designed to provide domestic consumers with insurance protection in the event an Installer ceases to trade and therefore is unable to honour their outstanding workmanship obligations. The protection comes in the form of an Insurance Backed Guarantee Policy.
Installers that are part of the scheme may also have the facility to be able to protect a Deposit payment that has been paid to the Installer with insurance protection for a period of up to 60 days. The Deposit Protection is capped at a maximum of 25% of the contract value, up to a maximum Deposit amount of £5,000.
Policies are available for domestic installations for properties used for residential purposes. Installers can choose a policy from 2 years to 10 years, to match the duration of the Installers workmanship guarantee. Please note that the insurance policy does not widen to cover any commercial installations.
