Underpinning Guarantee

As founding members of the Association of Specialist Underpinning Contractors or ASUC all our structural works, including design, workmanship and materials are covered by a 12 year insurance backed guarantee.

This insurance is issued directly to the property owner and is fully transferable. The guarantee can be included with the plans and specifications in the proposed Vendor’s Pack and is a positive asset when selling a property.
