Our Guarantees

The ProTen Guarantee

Our specialist works are guaranteed through our own ProTen Company Guarantees.  These are long-term, meaningful guarantees that come at no extra cost to our clients.

The following works are covered (unless stated otherwise in your Inspection Report):

  • Damp Proof Course Guarantee
  • Timber Treatment Guarantee
  • Below Ground Waterproofing Guarantee
  • Structural Repair Guarantee (wall ties, lateral restraints and crack stitching)

A specimen of the guarantee is available on request and will also be provided with the Inspection Report.

Our guarantee is available on the works carried out regardless of whether we are working directly with the homeowner or via a third party such as a builder. There are circumstances when a guarantee cannot be issued but in this instance, any restrictions will be detailed in the Inspection Report and discussed as necessary.

What do I need to do to receive a Company Guarantee on works?

You don’t need to do anything. The guarantee will be issued in the name of the property to the relevant person (usually the homeowner) once the final invoice for works has been settled.   We advise that the guarantee document is kept safe along with the Inspection Report, sketch and proof of purchase as this documentation will be asked for in the unlikely event of a future claim.

Is the ProTen Company Guarantee transferable?

Yes. The guarantee is issued on the property itself in the name of the property owner. It is transferable between owners of the property.  The ProTen Enquiry Team will be able to help you with this should it need to be transferred for example, to the new owner of a property.

Insurance Backed Guarantee (GPI)

To further complement our ProTen Company Guarantee, and as members of the PCA, we able to offer further peace of mind by giving the option of taking out a 10-year Insurance Backed Guarantee provided by Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd (GPI).

GPI states ‘The principle of an Insurance Backed Guarantee is to honour the terms of the written guarantee, originally issued by the installing contractor, where the contractor has ceased to trade a defined within the policy document and is therefore unable to satisfy claims against the guarantee.’

How do I know how much the GPI Insurance will cost?

The cost of the premium is set by GPI, and will be detailed within the Inspection Report and a GPI Information Leaflet will be enclosed.

What do I need to do to take out GPI?

The Inspection Report received from us will give you the option to accept or decline the insurance and we will arrange payment of this. Should you accept, upon completion of works we will forward the required documentation to GPI and they will raise and send the insurance certificate to you.

PCA Promise

Our membership status with the Property Care Association (PCA) means that for homeowners any deposits paid prior to works are automatically protected should your contractor go out of business before or while work is carried out.

What do I need to do to be covered by the PCA Promise?

You don’t need to do anything. Our membership status with the PCA means our homeowner clients are automatically covered at no cost.

Condensation Units Warranty

The range of units we specify and install to combat condensation are covered by a unit warranty from the manufacturer.  The units in our Condensation Unit Range are Positive Input Ventilation Units, Extractor Fans and Heat Recovery Units.

What do I need to do to register my condensation unit warranty?          

You don’t need to take any action.  The warranty on the unit will start from the date of installation and we will keep a record of this.

How long are the condensation units under warranty?

The warranty period can vary depending on the unit. It can vary between 5 to 7 years and will cover parts and labour for varying timeframes within the warranty lifetime.  Details of the warranty for the unit/s specified will be given in the Inspection Report provided and can be discussed with your Surveyor.

Who can I contact if I have a question about my condensation unit after installation?

Once the unit is installed you may have questions. Please contact our customer service enquiry team by calling or emailing us and they will be on hand to help.

What happens when my warranty runs out?

If you have questions about your unit after the warranty has run out, we can offer advice on how to resolve a problem or if necessary book a service with a ProTen engineer. A servicing cost may be applicable and our customer service enquiry team will be happy to discuss this with you.

Product Guarantees

The products we use are covered by a product manufacturer guarantee.

What do I need to do to register my product warranty?

You don’t need to do anything as these are in place by using us as your installers.
