Following a recommendation from our architect, Advantage were quickly able to help in our requirement for a structural defects warranty. Barry, and his team, were quickly able to process our application, arrange and carry out a survey, and issue the required documents in only a couple days. The whole process has been simple and highly efficient, and we look forward to working with them again in the near future
We’ve had a fantastic experience with Advantage who have been an important extension to our site team throughout. Their approach has been incredibly refreshing and they’ve been keen and willing to support us during each stage of the build. We would recommend their services with confidence to developers, investors and builders who are involved with both refurbishment or new build schemes.
We have collaborated with Advantage on several schemes in the past and once again have had a fantastic experience. They are thorough, reliable and flexible. They are always available for advice and feedback and have become an important extension of our professional team.
We looked into a number of warranty providers, comparing packages, costs and terms and for us, Advantage offered the best deal on all levels. We’ve had our first visit from their surveyor who’s been incredibly helpful. We know that the team are professional, helpful and responsive and are keen to work with us to ensure the project runs as smoothly as possible and meets all of our deadlines.

I’m incredibly confident and comfortable choosing Advantage rather than one of the more established providers. They are flexible and accessible, quickly becoming an extended part of the team, proving to be a real asset – a refreshing change!
Advantage are a good organisation to work with and are always available if I need to discuss any aspect of the project. They are very responsive as well as professional and have proved to be a valuable extension to the professional team.
The team at Advantage are always on hand if needed and have visited site several times throughout the build to ensure we were complying with our planning conditions and building regs. They are a very hands on business and a great asset to the project. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
We’ve been impressed by the overall approach of Advantage. They really do offer a personal service that is very different to the more established providers. We have already consulted with them in the early stages and together we understand how we will roll out the project. We look forward to developing our partnership with them and are already discussing other sites where we can collaborate in the future.
Advantage are undoubtedly more appreciative of the issues surrounding conversions. Flexibility is the key! When work begins on a conversion, you don’t always know what lies beneath the facade and it’s not until you start uncovering things – both in terms of technical and construction – that you are faced with fresh challenges. Advantage are very much in tune with the nature of a conversion and have worked with us to overcome any obstacles.

The Advantage way of working has been a really refreshing change to a typical warranty provider. Rather than seeing the warranty as a necessary add on cost, the Advantage team has offered real value. Our surveyor is always on hand to offer support and advice and it’s good to talk through the challenges faced with him at key stages when he has offered useful and valuable feedback.
Anthony Russell - Testimonial
It is important for me as a developer to have the right guarantee that not only gives my funders peace of mind but gives myself and any potential future owners of the property that vital reassurance. The Advantage team have been a great asset throughout the build, visiting the site at certain stages and discussing and reviewing progress with insight and support. We look forward to completing the build and securing a full Advantage warranty.

AHCI were extremely efficient in responding to my enquiry for a 10 year structural defects warranty. The policy covers everything required, and was a painless easy process to complete. The price was extremely competitive. Barry has a very professional, yet nice, relaxed and friendly manner in responding, and formed an excellent line of communication through to Surveyor doing the build inspection stages. I would recommend Advantage and would use them again.
AHCI has provided me with a Structural Defects Warranty that I required to cover my building during construction and tom satisfy my bank. Steve Loveridge would respond to my emails and queries even after hours. What stood out was their efficiency and good after sales care. I would have no problem in recommending Advantage for warranty cover.
Sustainable Development Consultancy Ltd have worked with Advantage over the last 12 Months. We met Sales Manager Barry Bowers march 2015 , from which we developed a working relationship to provide a warranty to our small to medium developers Our clients rely on good communication in order that they are able to get this information as quick as possible to make an informed decision Barry and Advantage have provided our clients with a efficient & proactive service. Making it as simple as possible We at SDC look at this as an important part of the house building process and look forward to a long term working relationship.[
From the first point of contact Barry provided the friendly reassurance that whatever the size and complexity of my project, AHCI would be able to help with my structural defects insurance requirements. The process was swift and painless, with no delay in requests for information and advice. Barry liaised fully with the relevant inspectors from beginning to end, quickly providing the relevant certification upon completion. I look forward to speaking to Barry again during the nascent stages of my next project.
