CRL Approved Builder

We like to keep things straight-forward so...

If you purchase Structural Defects Insurance and are working on commercial projects you will be classed as a CRL Approved Builder and be graded either Silver, Gold or Platinum. Your rating depends on how much experience you have with us, so, the more projects you do, the higher your grading.

We don’t need to tell you that reputation means everything in the construction game. Being a listed member of the CRL Approved Network means you receive official endorsement from an expert in structural defects insurance.
