Insurance backed guarantee with 10 year warranty from the CPAFor a long time in the fenestration industry, offering an Insurance Backed Guarantee has been a way for installers to stand out from the crowd. An IBG shows homeowners that an installation company is reputable and trustworthy, its products and fitters are up to the job, and they care about the end result.But the dynamic is due to change. From 6 June, Insurance Backed Guarantees will be mandatory with every installation. Homeowners will no longer need to ask, instead it is the installer’s duty to provide one.
