What does it cover?
There is a myriad of different options when it comes to guarantees for roofing projects and each covers different things, for example cover for materials, workmanship, design, consequential loss and contractor insolvency. Before signing any paperwork, check your guarantee covers what it needs to – never assume something is included.
What type of insurance is provided?
Check what type of insurance is provided. There are a number of different kinds available: professional indemnity insurance, public liability insurance, product liability insurance, latent defects insurance and insurance backed guarantee. Ensure you have the appropriate level of cover for your project.
It is also recommended to look into the financial stability of all parties involved with the guarantee. If one of the parties becomes insolvent and ceases trading, this could present a major headache for everyone involved, not to mention a very unhappy client. Don’t be afraid to do your research and ask for testimonials from past clients before agreeing to work with a new company.

When time is limited, it can be tempting to skip over the small print. That is why IKO offers a comprehensive range of insurance backed single-point guarantees which cover workmanship defects, material quality, performance issues and design implementation.
