It is a well known fact that the general public are more likely to accept your quotation if you were to offer them an insurance backed guarantee, it gives them peace of mind knowing that the guarantee will be honoured in the event of a company ceasing to trade.
The Confederation of Roofing Contractors are pleased to announce that we now have secured a contract that enables our members to offer their clients a fully insured 10 year back up guarantee and deposit protection, this guarantee will be issued by the CORC and will be backed up by HIP, a company registered with the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
The CORC 10 year insurance backed guarantee is exclusive only to members of the CORC, non members would not be able to compete with the prices we have quoted, they are the lowest possible we could negotiate in the UK.
All members of the Confederation of Roofing Contractors are automatically registered with the Insurance company, there is no joining fee and nothing to pay apart from the cost of each IBG.
Although a home improvement is one of the safest forms of financial investment, there is one pitfall that is often overlooked
A worthless guarantee - a contractor’s own guarantee can cover faulty workmanship and materials - But only if the company is still trading.
Every year thousands of businesses close due to bankruptcy, liquidation or even death of the proprietor. A CORC Insurance Backed Guarantee (or IBG) will protect your financial investment by matching the terms of your contractor’s original guarantee should they have ceased to trade. So, if they are no longer in a position to honour a claim – your project will still be protected.
The IBG can protect your project from deposit to completion and beyond and it can cover stage payments made to your contractor and the work in progress. CORC will even help you to find a new, approved contractor to commence or recommence the project, if your original contractor fails to complete.
Remember - many homeowners assume that they will be covered by their home insurance policy but sadly this is rarely the case as contents and building insurance only cover accidental damage to property and not materials or workmanship.
The IBG can also be transferred to any new owner of your property which is a great asset if you decide to sell your home.
All members of the Confederation of Roofing Contractors offer this service so for your own peace of mind ask your roofer for a fully insured IBG to be included in their contract.
The IBG is issued on behalf of the Confederation of Roofing Contractors by HIP and covered by the FSA.
Members can now include this benefit in each quotation given for new works, the cost has to be included in the quotation and not as a separate item, details of the works should be conveyed to our office, payment will be via debit/credit card for each IBG. We will then obtain the IBG from the Insurance company and post directly to you or your client. The IBG will not cover minor repairs.
Although the IBG’s are badged by the CORC, all claims must be made directly to the insurance company, the CORC are not the guarantors and are acting only as a broker for this benefit.
Leaflets to be included in your quotations can be provided free of charge as can Van stickers and letterhead stickers.
