For peace of mind, Style Windows offers an insurance backed scheme on all domestic installations. The HomePro insurance scheme is one of the premier home improvement insurance schemes:
"As a home owner you should always make sure that any home improvements carried out by a contractor carry a HomePro Insurance Backed Guarantee. Good contractors will automatically offer you a HomePro Insurance Backed Guarantee.
If the contractor ceases to trade during the guarantee period, and you have reason to make a claim against the guarantee for faulty workmanship or materials, the policy will provide for an approved contractor to remedy the work. The cost of the work will be covered under the Insurance Backed Guarantee policy.
The period of cover provided by HomePro Insurance Backed Guarantees is different depending on what you have covered. The following provides a guide to cover periods – but always check your policy document to be sure:
Deposit cover lasts for a max 90 days from receipt by the contractor. Always ensure you have a written receipt of the payment on headed paper or order form. Deposit protection will stop when work starts on site.
The guarantee period can be anything up to 10 years on most home improvements. The policy you have will back the guarantee provided by the contractor – therefore if the contractors guarantee is 5 years – the cover period will also be 5 years."
