The Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency
3 Vimy Court
The Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency is an independent body that provides 25 year guarantees for Cavity Wall Insulation fitted by registered installers in the UK and Channel islands. The standard Guarantee covers traditionally constructed residential property, although a CIGA Commercial Guarantee is also available to owners of qualifying non-residential property.
The Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency was established in 1995 after consultation with the Government’s Energy, Environment and Waste Directorate (a division of DETR) to provide householders with an independent, uniform and dependable guarantee covering defects in materials and workmanship. All member installers of CIGA are assessed for competence and must follow the technical guidance for the material used and CIGA Best Practice Guidance.
CIGA also operates and administers the Cavity Wall Insulation Self Certification scheme (CWISC) in association with the British Board of Agrément.
