Aswell as joining the PCA in 2015, we also became full members of the Trustmark Scheme.
TrustMark is the only Government Endorsed 'find a tradesperson' scheme.
The core services of TrustMark are in the Repair, Maintenance and Improvement sectors (RMI) of the building services trades, in simple terms anything you may have undertaken ‘in and around your home’.
The TrustMark Scheme delivers quality firms through its licence agreements with Scheme Operators and Registered Firms. Our Scheme Operators and Registered Firms commit to meeting the requirements of the TrustMark Core Criteria, which are reviewed and updated annually.
As part of our membership of the PCA, we are registed contractors with GPI.
GPI underwrites insurance backed guarantees (IBGs) for many different trade types and areas of industry. Both commercial and domestic sectors are catered for; with IBGs presently being written for glazing, roofing, waterproofing,damp proofing, timber treatment, property renovations, ECO installations and renewable energy systems.
The purpose of an IBG is to provide insurance backing to a written workmanship and/or material guarantee, given by a building contractor to a domestic or commercial customer (the owner of the insured works).
We are approved damp proofing and timber treatment contractors for Sovereign Chemicals Ltd.
To gain approval from Sovereign, we have had damp proofing and timber treatment works assessed to make sure it was up to the high standards that they expect of their approved contractors.
