If you're looking for Structural Warranty Providers for your building project it's likely you'll have a few questions on who is the right company to work with.
Here we take an overview of the main options you have and give you a few reasons why we think working alongside CRL as your structural insurance provider is a smart choice.
What Exactly is a Structural Defects Insurance?
A Structural Warranty is designed to provide insurance for the first ten years after a new building is completed. If a serious structural fault appears as the house settles down during it's first few years of use, for example there could be problems with walls cracking, the roof structure or a fault with the damp proofing, then you will be covered. The Structural Warranty provider will arrange for the problems to be fixed instead of the building owner having to chase the builders or architects involved in the project and potentially take them to court.
Usually a Warranty provider will be appointed before a building project starts and they will undertake a technical audit to review the building plans and then inspect the house during construction to ensure all the latest building regulations are being applied and help to spot any potential problems. Sometimes a structural warranty provider will be appointed after building work has started or even been completed and can provide retrospective cover for a building.
