Guarantees

Olympic Construction maintains the highest standards in delivering property care solutions to its clients. This is backed by the training qualifications, experience and technical competence of its staff, as well as its membership as an approved contractor by a number of trade bodies.

For our clients’ safeguard and peace of mind, we also provide a guarantee for any works completed by us from one on the specialist trade insurance providers. This ensures, that in the unlikely event of either: something going wrong, or Olympic Construction ceasing trading, the problem will be rectified at no additional cost to the client.

Olympic Construction has approved membership status of a number of professional bodies and insurance protection companies.


 

The British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association, founded in 1929, has now established separate associations for its members working in the property care sector (dry rot, wet rot and woodworm treatment, wall-tie replacement, damp-proofing and water proofing) and the wood protection sector (treatment of new timber to protect against the risk of insect or fungal attack or fire in service, protective coatings to protect against weathering or fire and DIY wood protection).

These are the largest associations of their kind in Europe, and are the nationally recognised authorities on timber and damp problems. They set high standards for their members in technical competence, health, safety and environmental protection and customer service. Members provide answers to a wide range of problems.


 

GPI provides insurance cover in specialist areas of building and construction. With the Property Care Association (PCA), a subsidiary of the BWPDA, it is committed to improving the standard of workmanship available, through membership training, examinations and the creation of good practice guidelines.

The GPI Guarantee provides insurance cover which relates to the property rather than the owner. So, if you decide to sell your property, the guarantee is automatically transferred free of charge to the new owners, adding value to the purchase price.
