New year, new developments!

2019 is looking very exciting for The Confederation of Roofing Contractors with many new developments which will benefit our members greatly.

We are currently in the stages of speaking with a highly recognisable health and safety company looking to partner with us.

We should soon be able to provide additional insurance backed guarantees for other building work not specific to roofing.

We would like to continue displaying our members work on social media whenever possible as we are nearing the 13,000 followers mark on LinkedIn alone.

If any of our members would like to put forward any ideas of anything they would like to see from us or what else we can provide please call us on 01206 306600 or e mail membership@corc.co.uk. We welcome all of your opinions, ideas or criticisms.

Insurance Backed Guarantees: prices, how to order and what you have to provide alongside for it to be valid

Most of our roofers are now using the insurance backed guarantees for their customers but still, we have calls saying some have not provided them with the right documentation to make it valid.

Whenever an insurance backed guarantee is given, the customer has to also have a company guarantee and a contract. This will make the insurance backed guarantees valid.

Your company guarantee has to match or be more years than the insurance backed guarantee, it can never be less.

10 year – Residential

£1 – £6,000 = £30.00

£6,001 – £25,000 = £35.00,

£25,001 – £50,000 = £55.00

£50,001- £1,000,000 = 2% of contract value inclusive of VAT

10 years – Commercial

Policies under £5000 – £100.00 minimum fee

Policies over £5000 = 2% of contract value inclusive of VAT

10 + 10 Years Residential

Policies under £5000 = £100 (next 10 year fee included)

Policies over £5000 = 2.5% of contract value inclusive of VAT (next 10 year fee included)

10 + 10 Years Commercial

Policies under £5000 = £150 (next 10 year fee included)

Policies over £5000 = 3% of contract value inclusive of VAT (next 10 year fee included)

To order please e mail the answers to the following questions and send them to gemma@corc.co.uk before 2.00pm. Guarantees will be sent back to you the next working day:

Customer Name

Site address and postcode

Date the work was completed

Contract value + VAT

How many years you need the guarantee to cover

Is the property residential or commercial?
