Insurance-Backed Guarantees August 29, 2019

Insurance-backed guarantees, also known as ‘insurance-backed warranties’ and ‘IBGs’ are products that are commonly provided to domestic property owners for a variety of works including building works, double glazing works and, more recently, invasive species control.

Japanese Knotweed Solutions Limited have been providing insurance-backed treatments for over fifteen years, and we currently offer a range of modern, cost-effective and streamlined plans as part of our membership of the trade bodies INNSA and the PCA.

We provide a guarantee on completion of the works (subject to terms and conditions), and a third-party insurer provides cover on our guarantee, so that any re-growth will continue to be covered by the guarantee if our company ceases trading.

As well as giving you peace of mind, IBGs are often also required by mortgage lenders to secure funding on properties affected by Japanese knotweed.

We can’t provide advice on these products – clients must choose whether a product suits their needs or not – but we can distribute the following information from the suppliers of the insurance products:

Herbicide Information August 29, 2019

As part of our commitments to safe environmental practice and in line with our commitments and obligations to health and safety, Japanese Knotweed Solutions Limited are keen to be transparent and safe, and to provide readily-accessible information about the plant protection products we use (including herbicides).

We will supply full safety documentation before we carry out any works, but potential clients, neighbours and other interested parties may find the following links useful.

The following guidance has been provided by the suppliers of Roundup Pro Vantage (a glyphosate-based herbicide), and to the best of our knowledge, this is still the most up-to-date advice.
