Services to Insurance Providers

Insurance providers want the best outcome for the clients, so at Hydromedial we offer a complete service when it comes to Home Owner Warranty claims & home & contents claims. We are not general building consultants, we offer a full range of reporting from dilapidation, building compliance, defective works, litigation to full specification and design followed by the overall project management.

Hydromedial offer the following

  • Builder’s warranty reports: Buildings that are covered by home warranty insurance should be inspected prior to the conclusion of the warranty cover period. This will be either two, six or seven years from the date of occupation, depending upon the class type of the building, and when the policy was activated. Hydromedial  can undertake a site inspection of any property that is covered and will provide a defect report which can be directed to the builder. If the builder has gone into liquidation or can no longer be located, Hydromedial  can provide a report to the home warranty insurer so as the necessary rectification works can be carried out.

We can supply compliance reports, request comparable pricing from contractors and suppliers and overall project management of cladding replacement to any building.
