HIG LITE was created as a streamlined version of the popular Home Improvements Guarantee Scheme.
It’s purpose is to provide homeowners with protection and peace of mind when embarking on their home improvement projects from before the work starts – throughout the project and for up to 10 years after the project is completed.
We ensure that home owners are insured against the unlikely circumstance where a member contractor – for whatever reason – ceases to trade and thereby is not able to fulfill their contractual obligations concerning their home improvement project
Before the work starts: Help in providing details of competent and professional contractors many of whom are members of the Trading Standards Approved ” Buy with Confidence” Scheme
Deposit Protection : Ensuring that client deposits are protected
During the Project: That the project is completed by another accredited contractor should your chosen contractor cease trading.
After the Project is completed: By supplying and insurance backed guarantee – authorised by the Financial Conducts Authority (FCA) – from our insurance partner HIP – which mirrors the level of protection offered by your original contractor.
