Benefits of an Icopal Insurance Backed Guarantee
Icopal guarantees are underwritten by separate insurance policies covering product, consequential damage and contractor insolvency. All insurance policies are arranged with first class security in the London market by companies specialising in construction.
All Icopal waterproofing membranes are covered by the insurance policies including those no longer available.
Icopal is the only waterproofing manufacturer to be approved by the Financial Services Authority. Consequently Icopal are not bounded by European legislation limiting waterproofing manufacturers from offering insurance backed guarantees for either contractor workmanship or insolvency.
Icopal’s Insurance Backed System Warranty includes contractor insolvency cover should the original installing contractor cease trading. In this event, all future claims against workmanship for the project under guarantee revert to Icopal.
Up to 30 years
Extended warranties upto to 30 years are available for the Insurance Backed Product Warranty.
Comprehensive Terms & Conditions
All terms and conditions attached to each of the Insurance Backed Guarantees have been independently assessed concerning its suitability and relevance under English Law.
