Top questions our Installers ask us
Deposit Protection Insurance will protect the Policyholder against the unforeseen costs that might be incurred in respect of a lost Deposit payment, in the event that the Contractor that the Policyholder contracted with has Ceased Trading, and as a consequence, the Contractor is unable to complete the Proposed Works.
To settle a Claim, PWF will arrange for the completion of the Proposed Works by an alternative company. The Policyholder will be required to pay the outstanding balance that remains in their possession to their new Installer (up to the financial limits of the Policy).
An Insurance Backed Guarantee is designed to protect Customers against unforeseen costs that they may incur in order to rectify a Defect in the Insured Works, or to rectify a breach of the Building Regulations in the Insured Works, in the event that the original Contractor that installed the Insured Works has Ceased Trading and is unable to honour their obligations to their Customers.
Insurance Backed Guarantees provide complete protection to your Customers.

No, we do not charge a non-usage fee. Your annual issue of Insurance applications are allocated to your account for you to use when required and payment for these Policies is spread over your 12 month Membership period, meaning you pay the same amount each month irrespective of the number of Policies issued.
We do not charge for amendments or cancellations. In addition, for our Members who are FENSA registered and we submit Installations on their behalf, we will inform FENSA of the amendment or cancellation at no extra charge to you. However, if a replacement FENSA certificate is produced, FENSA may well charge you for this.
Once an Insurance Policy is active, your Customer will receive a welcome e-mail as confirmation, inviting them to log in to our Homeowner Portal.
From here, they’ll be able to download their Insurance certificate, read the full Terms and Conditions relating to their cover and download a copy of our Homeowner Pack.
To ensure the welcome e-mail is sent out, you’ll need to provide Us with your Customer’s e-mail address when registering the Installation.
If your Customer does not have an e-mail address, you will be provided with a default PWF e-mail address, which means that the Installations will be notified to Us and we will arrange for your Customer’s Policy Documents to be sent to them in the post.
