Glazing Insurance Backed Guarantees

As a part of your membership of a Competent Person self-certification scheme for glazing, you will be required to be a member of an Insurance Backed Guarantee provider such as QANW.

Quality Assured National Warranties can provide an Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) which is a low cost, long term insurance policy, which provides valuable protection for consumers when undertaking home improvements projects. This requirement and the product available from QANW are for domestic contracts only.

> QANW defines a domestic installation as one carried out by an installer on behalf of a private individual customer, on a property used for residential purposes. It is important to note that both criteria must be met and any job which falls outside of this definition will be treated as a commercial contract.

“The installing contractor must contract with a private individual; and the installation must be carried out on a residential property.”

Policy Benefits >

Deposit Protection Insurance

The policy will protect your customer for a total period of 120 days in total and is intended to put your customer back in the same financial position as they were in prior to the failure of your firm.

Insurance Backed Guarantee

The policy is designed to protect your customer in the event that you cease trading and – as a result – are unable to honour the terms of your own written guarantee.
