Installation Insurance Guarantee
Insurers get behind Flood Professionals Scheme with Insurance Backed Cover
Lincs Flood Defence are delighted that the Flood Professionals scheme is now insurance backed, meaning as a Flood Professionals certified contractor, we can offer a £5,000 insurance guarantee to homeowners who make the decision to mitigate their flood risk by having Kitemark certified flood products installed to Kitemark certified standards.
This offering is designed to provide both peace of mind and financial support for homeowners. In the event of their property suffering flood damage, homeowners will be entitled to an automatic and guaranteed £5,000 payment made under the unique Flood Professionals offer.
This payment is designed to help those homeowners who either don’t have flood insurance or those who do but with a sizeable excess. Household claims take time to settle, but the insurers would expect to make this £5,000 payment within 10 days of the damage.
The insurers that have backed the Flood Professionals scheme are Hiscox Insurance.
“Before a contractor is certified to install to BSI Kitemark installation standards, they have to go through an intensive training course and pass the test at the end to be approved to install these products. This in itself is a testament to the company’s dedication to risk management. I had the opportunity to sit in on this training and was very impressed with how thorough it is; it covers aspects from survey through to installation in detail and importantly, has both theoretical and practical elements to ensure that the contractors are able to put in to practice what they have learned. I came away with confidence that Flood professional companies are committed to reducing risk with the aim that the products are installed in a competent and diligent manner.”
