Insurance

 

We know the security of your home is of vital importance insurance when selecting a contractor.

We are covered for:

Public Liability: £2,000,000.00
Employer Liability: £10,000,000.00
Product Liability: £2,000,000.00

Our policy classification includes that of “Underpinning and Foundation Contractor” and states we can excavate to the required depths to do retrofit basements or digouts, basement excavation and basement construction. Also stated is damp-proofing and timber treatment contractor.
Many policies are incorrect in regards to the underpinning aspect, having restrictions in regards to the percentage of the contract value that is authorised in regards to underpinning, often as low as 5%. Our policy allows us to carry out stand-alone underpinning contracts.

We are very proud of our Triton Approved Contractors status, which means we can offer 30-year insurance backed guarantees on our waterproof membrane systems.

Other schemes are also available.
