Quality Assurance Guarantee

Terms and conditions

Scope of the guarantee 

The guarantee is available only for painting and decorating work on private residential premises in the uk which is carried out by an approved Dulux Select Decorator using the AkzoNobel brand portfolio. The guarantee does not affect the homeowner's statutory rights.

If the scheme member defaults on their guarantee, Dulux will ensure they complete the work to a satisfactory level. If this is not possible , Dulux will make alternative arrangements by appointing another scheme member within the liability of the guarantee to complete the work.

Claims under guarantee 

Before making a claim under the guarantee the homeowner must first try to resolve the matter with the Dulux Select Decorator scheme member. Only where the matter has not been resolved to the homeowners satisfaction should they contact Dulux Select Decorators membership scheme office.

Limit of Liability

The guarantee covers the amount by which the cost of remedying the defective work, when taken together with the cost of the work already done, exceeds the original price quoted for the work. Subject to this, the homeowner remains liable to pay the Dulux Select Decorator scheme member for the work carried out by the Dulux Select Decorator scheme member unless otherwise agreed.

Where the complaint refers to property or personal damage, Dulux will in the first instance ask the homeowner and their scheme member to pursue this through the scheme member's liability insurance. However, if for any reason this is not possible, Dulux will ask the homeowner to pursue the claim under their household insurance policy.

Under these circumstances Dulux will cover any excess payable and any additional cost the homeowner suffers due to an increase in their household insurance premium in the following 12 months. However, Dulux will not pay for any losses or costs that they are not directly covered by the Terms and Conditions of this guarantee.

The liability to Dulux under the Guarantee is capped at twice the invoice cost of the work and does not cover consequential loss.

Your two year guarantee

Your Decorator will guarantee workmanship for two years from completion of the  job providing products in the AkzoNobel Trade brand portfolio used.

Dulux will underwrite your Decorator's Workmanship Guarantee for the same two years.

The Dulux Guarantee will still cover the application of complementary products, e.g. fillers, preparation materials and wall coverings but strictly excludes use of competitors products when the product is available from the AkzoNobel Trade brand portfolio. Please note; use of competitors products will invalidate your guarantee.

Complementary products; the application / use of these products is covered by the Workmanship Guarantee, however, in the case of product breakdown, your Decorator would claim directly from his supplier and/or the manufacturer to cover costs for any remedial work required. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.

Please note; poor substrates, inadequate specification made by homeowners and severe climate exposure can result in early breakdown of surface coatings. Your Dulux Select Decorator scheme member will advise accordingly. If the work is undertaken in such circumstances it will not be covered by the Dulux Guarantee. This will be clearly stated by the scheme member in a 'Dulux Workmanship Guarantee Disclaimer' form. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.
