Protect your home investment

Renovating your home or building a new one can be a long and challenging process that includes various contractors, building materials, and many potential risks. Fortunately, there is a way you can relieve yourself from unforeseen risks that may arise during/after the building process—a Master Build Guarantee.

Also called the Master Build 10-year Guarantee, it provides financial coverage for any construction-related issues. By getting a Master Build 10-year Guarantee, you’ll have some peace of mind during your construction journey.

What are the benefits of having a Master Build Guarantee?

The following are some of the benefits you can expect from a Master Build 10-year Guarantee.

Financial security

A home building or renovation project is a big investment. When you have the Master Builder Guarantee, you can rest assured that you’re getting financial coverage in the event any problems arise during construction and any remedial work will be done without incurring any additional costs for you.

Quality assurance

The Master Build 10-year Guarantee can act as a mark of quality. Many home-building companies offer this guarantee as proof of their high-quality workmanship and it stands as a testament to a builder’s commitment towards customer satisfaction and their meticulous attention to detail.

Increases property value

The guarantee can increase the value of your property. When you’re selling your home, the guarantee will assure buyers that the home is built to the highest standards, using the highest quality materials, by reputable contractors. This makes your home more attractive to potential buyers.
