An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is a type of protection that is essential when you are having improvement works carried out on your property.
The IBG acts as insurance coverage in case your installation company ceases to trade.
In such a situation, you would be able to make a claim under the terms of the IBG insurance, which covers the original guarantee provided by the installer.
The IBG is available for a period up to 10 years, depending on the work carried out, and is underwritten by an authorised insurer.
However, it is important to note that you must apply for your Insurance Backed Guarantee within 28 days of the contract being completed to your entire satisfaction and once you have paid the CPA member.
The Consumer Protection Association, which has been in business for 30 years, is a leading authority, protecting you and your property with home improvement insurance.
