An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is a guarantee given by a contractor to provide peace of mind in case the contractor has ceased trading.
An IBG is protection for both you and your customers, in the unlikely event of your company ceasing to trade.
An Insurance Backed Guarantee raises a customer’s confidence, should your business close your insurer will honour any claims under the original guarantee.

An Insurance Backed Guarantee does exactly what it says, it Backs Up a Guarantee that is already in force. It really is that simple, a contractor issues a Guarantee for their Workmanship and Products and we will back that Guarantee up with an Insurance Policy ensuring the customer has someone to call to rectify any issues if the Contractor is no longer trading.
Sets the contractors apart from competitors that cannot offer such a guarantee and demonstrates the quality of, and confidence in, the contractors’ product and workmanship.
Enables the contractor to submit and win tenders on contracts where insurance backed guarantees are a requirement.
Demonstrates the fact that the contractor has satisfied insurers as to the quality of their work.
Provides vital protection and security for the building owner and their funder.
Contractors, large and small, cease to trade each year for a multitude of different reasons. Guarantee periods can vary from 2 years to 10 years and much can happen to any business in that time, regardless of current stature.
If your chosen installer were to cease trading you could be left with faulty goods, a guarantee of no value and a potential bill to rectify any problem.
