Derek at AHCI has now assisted in covering several of our projects. He always approaches each scheme with the same level of professionalism and friendliness that makes the process so much easier. AHCI continues to be our firm of choice.

(Advantage) helped us to get latent defects insurance for our new build after the original insurance company collapsed. Michele Mauchel, who was the contact person for us, was a real star. As a result of her brilliant work and patience, we obtained our certificate. This could (have been) much more painful without her. We would like to thank all the technical team, especially Luke, who patiently waited for the technical documents that we extracted from the builder.

(This is my) first project of building three houses. I was connected with AHCI in regards to obtaining building insurance.

Advantage assisted us with complicated retrospective warranties that other warranty providers would not entertain. We were put in touch under recommendation and our experience with Advantage was great service simplified by a single point of contact, Daniel Phillips, who held our hand through the process.

Would have no hesitation in recommending Advantage and the personal support provided by Dan.

We are delighted to leave a 5 star review for AHCI following the conversion of our garage to a 2 bedroom dwelling. We were dealing with Josh Giblin throughout the whole process, and found him to be very responsive, very patient (as we are newbies to this), extremely informative and professional - from the initial quotation, through to receiving the certificate of compliance. We would have no hesitation in recommending AHCI for anyone looking for a 10 year latent defect warranty on their new-build project. Thanks Josh - you're a credit to the business.
