HomePro has a wealth of expertise in the home improvement industry. Founded back in 1999 we created a sister brand called HomePro Insurance during 2001,
which has fast become one of the leading providers of home improvement protection insurance products in the UK.
HomePro Insurance were recognised for their efforts in insurance when they were awarded “The Insurance Times Award for Innovation”
by the insurance market in December 2002 while HomePro Insurance were one of the first companies in our sector to achieve *FSA authorisation
(*Replaced by the Financial Conduct Authority in April 2013) during 2005.
Our products are available to home owners through a network of around 3500 tradesman located from the Scottish Highlands down to Cornwall.
Businesses are able to offer our Deposit and Warranty Insurance when doing work within the Home Improvement Industry.
There are two ways for this to be done.
The first is by way of an offer leaflet which the tradesman provides to his customer who is then free to contact HomePro Insurance
directly to purchase their cover, and the second is 'by way of business'.
By way of business is where our members include Deposit and Warranty Insurance to the customer as part of the overall cost.
Policies are activated when the customer submits our return slip confirming that the works have been completed to a satisfactory level.
A HomePro insurance backed guarantee, or IBG for short, covers deposits (where level of cover is Value Plus or TrustMark Value Plus), workmanship and materials.
Deposit Protection Cover lasts for 90 days from date of payment to the contractor and the Warranty Insurance Policy is valid for a period of up to 10 years.
The period of cover is determined by the category of work and mirrors the contractor’s written guarantee, subject to the terms of the insurance policy.
The cover is usually provided for the following types of home improvement jobs.
Awnings and Car Ports
Double Glazing Doors, Windows and Fascia's
Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms
Roofing Works, Solar Roofing Panels and Loft Conversions
