Insurance Backed Gurantee

Given on all FENSA registered installations. Peace of mind is priceless.

We Give an Insurance Backed Guarantee

For many years in the construction and fenestration industries, consumers would look for this guarantee when choosing a tradesman to ensure that their money and their home were protected.

Guarantee insurance was always ‘best practice’, but from June 2014, all tradespeople MUST provide an Insurance Backed Guarantee with every installation or home improvement project once it has been registered with FENSA.

Without an IBG, a finished project will not be able to be registered under self-assessment schemes (FENSA or CERTAS).

What Is An Insurance Backed Guarantee?

An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is valuable protection for tradespeople and their customers. An Insurance Backed Guarantee boosts consumer confidence, as home owners know that they are protected in the unlikely event of your company ceasing to trade.

If, due to the liquidation, receivership, administration or winding up of your business due to bankruptcy, state retirement or death of the principal(s), the company no longer exists, faults appearing after they cease to trade may be covered by the Insurance Backed Guarantee.

The Insurance Backed Guarantee is available for a period up to 10 years and is backed by  UK authorised insurer QWAN National Warranties. The actual policy will be issued by them directly to yourself after the job has been completed and FENSA registered.

Although Windseal Double Glazing are a well established company and have been trading for over 25 years, (and I am confident of another 25!), I think it’s still vital to give an insurance backed guarantee to our customers. For peace of mind and confidence that they can trust in us as an established local company.
