At the CPA we’ve been offering reliable installers and tradesmen insurance cover and guarantees for well over 20 years, now being recognised by FENSA as a leading provider of insurance backed guarantees. In today’s modern market, it is now more important than ever for both homeowners and installers to receive the proper protection in the event of liquidation or financial breakdown.

With this in mind, it’s becoming increasingly more tempting for home improvement companies to offer their own form of deposit protection and Insurance backed guarantees in an effort to cut costs. Opting for an independent IBG provider such as the CPA however still remains the best choice for all those involved, here are some brief reasons why:

1. Impartial advice from an accredited third party organisation

When using an independent IBG provider to protect any financial deposits such as the CPA, we’re able to offer impartial advice and services that work in the best interests of both parties, consumers and installers. This helps homeowners buy with increased confidence knowing that should anything go wrong, their financial deposit is protected by a third party which simultaneously makes said installers accountable and more trustworthy.

2. Protection for both consumer and company with less risk

As opposed to when an installer, tradesmen or home improvement company offers solely the customer protection against that company’s liquidation, an independent provider’s IBG protects both parties against any potential trouble. An IBG supplied by a provider such as the CPA helps to place reliable tradesmen in front of needing homeowners, creating an agreement that is less risky for both.
