Ballman Roofing Contractors Insurance Backed Guarantees

Ballman Roofing provide a minimum ten year insurance backed guarantee with all new work. We take our customer services very seriously and understand that home owners have great concerns when contractors are carrying out projects on their house and especially the validity of guarantees provided. This is due to the few unsavoury characters in society that cannot be trusted. To give our customers peace of mind with all new work, we offer to set up and pay for a policy that provides you with insurance protection. Details listed below.

Guaranteed For Your Protection
This insurance underwrites the installing contractor’s written guarantee, which is usually for defective workmanship or faulty products. If the contractor ceases to trade, the insurance will take the place of the guarantee for the remaining term of the cover.

Why Is Insurance Required?
A contractor will show his confidence in his workmanship by giving written guarantees ranging between 12 months and 10 years for the majority of home improvement contracts. If a fault arises during the guarantee period the contractor would normally call to fix the problem at no charge. However a contractor cannot give an absolute assurance as to the length of time he will be in business and therefore be able to honour his written guarantee. For this reason, a professional contractor should always provide insurance cover, which will honour his written guarantee, in the unlikely event of him ceasing to trade.
