PEACE OF MIND FOR 10 YEARS

Building a new home or making a significant alteration is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make, and if anything goes wrong it could be the most costly too.  The Building Act and Consumer Guarantees Act both include protection for consumers when undertaking building work. However, if the building company you’ve chosen goes bust, or something happens to your builder, this legislative protection is of no value whatsoever. That’s why it makes sense to have an independently-insured warranty in place, just in case something does go wrong.
