Construction Guarantee Services (CGS) Damp Proofing

As a Construction Guarantee Services (CGS) approved company, we are able to offer our clients Insured Guarantees for all our specialist remedial works. This gives our clients the peace of mind that in the highly unlikely event of our company ceasing trading, your Guarantee will continue to provide protection for your property to cover the specialist remedial works undertaken by TrustGuard.

Our insured guarantees are provided by CGS (Construction Guarantee Services) Click here for more information. All CGS contractors are independently vetted against a checklist of over sixty three standards they are expected to meet and only contractors showing a high degree of technical competence, a full knowledge of current Health and Safety regulations (to protect you the customer) together with financial stability and probity, are eligible for membership.

Our Specialist Works Guarantees are provided for a small one off additional premium.  Our insured guarantee is backed by an insurance certificate and policy specific to your property. The insurance relates to the property no matter who the owner is and therefore neither CGS nor the Insurer need to be informed of any sale and there is no assignment fee necessary.

Our Insured Guarantees can be offered for up to 20 years for specialist timber treatment, damp proofing, wall ties and associated works.

All our insurance quotations are inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT).  If your insurance does not have IPT included it’s not genuine insurance.

When comparing CGS members with other contractors you must ask yourself who vets those contractors, who determines their technical skills and are they Health and Safety trained and good enough to be acceptable to an insurance company?

Construction Guarantee Services (CGS) is an Appointed Representative of Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.



If you're buying a new home, we can provide an in-depth, pre-purchase damp and timber or wall tie survey.

After discovering a worrying damp problem during a bathroom renovation project I contacted various damp specialists for advice. TrustGuard acted immediately by visiting the site to offer a thorough inspection of the problem, determine root causes and give key advice on the best course of action to correct all problems.

I am extremely pleased with helpful service that Don has provided and would definitely recommend to anybody requiring assessment and repair of damp problems. I will have no hesitation in contacting TrustGuard for any future renovation projects.

Fantastic service! Highly recommended!
