"The LABC Warranty guys have got a good rapport with us. They're not just reading out of a book - when you talk to them they seem to know what you're going through and what answers you are looking for."

“Other providers often have to refer back to engineers and you can be waiting two or three weeks for an answer on something that can be resolved there and then.”
Simon Randall and Gary Chisnall, Randall and Chisnall

"We have always worked with LABC Warranty before we actually start construction. One of the first things we noticed was how fast they were at approving plans and drawings and how fast they would come if issues arose on site.”

"Not only is the design important but also the quality and assurance that the house is being built the way it should be. That’s where we come in!"
Peter Bond - Sales Director, Cyden Homes
High Grange Developments owner interview still

"LABC Warranty inspectors are professional, experienced and expert in their field.”

"We chose to work with LABC Warranty because we think it is the most prominent organisation of its type and the prestige of winning their awards reflects more positively on us than other warranty providers. Anything that rewards and recognises quality, stimulates quality, and that can only be a good thing."
Gary Reed, Owner, High Grange Developments
