What it covers

The eRenovate Guarantee offers protection with two key coverages;

  • up to $25,000 Deposit Payment protection, and/or
  • The 88 Day Workmanship Guarantee

The Deposit Payment protection covers your initial payment (deposit) made directly to the Bonded by eRenovate™ Pro you hired, in the event that the Pro disappears or misappropriates the deposit funds,

The Workmanship Guarantee is directly and primarily related to the project performed by the Bonded by eRenovate™ Pro you hired via eRenovate, by clicking Hire with Guarantee button. The Workmanship Guarantee must be a result of services provided based on your original project. Add-on projects or future projects not requested through eRenovate, even if completed by an eRenovate Pro, are not covered.

The eRenovate Guarantee is activated for your project, once you click the Hire with Guarantee button within your project dashboard, beside the Bonded by eRenovate™ Pro you choose to hire.

FAQs

Any projects or contracts happening outside of eRenovate, and do not use the eRenovate Project Scope Platform, are not covered by the eRenovate Guarantee.

Once you decide which Pro to hire, it is required to activate the Guarantee for the project, via the easy-to-use eRenovate Project Scope Platform. It’s important to remember that if you do not use the eRenovate Project Scope Platform when starting your project with a Bonded Pro, your project is not protected by the eRenovate Guarantee under our Terms and Conditions nor will you receive any of the safeguards the eRenovate Project Scope Platform delivers.

If an eRenovate Pro asks you to enter into a contract without using the eRenovate Project Scope Platform - - or if you think a Bonded Pro might be abusing our eRenovate Guarantee process, let us know by clicking the flag icon to report the incident. Starting a project without activating the Guarantee via the Project Scope Platform also puts you at greater risk of fraud and other common project issues.

With decades of experience, eRenovate and our partners created the easiest way to track projects with your Pro. The Project Scope platform gives you what you need to stay in sync, manage details, and reach your project goals!

The Project Scope platform includes simple tools that enable you to message your Bonded Pro, store supporting documents, including your signed Contract. The Project Scope platform also offers Project Milestones, payment schedule and more to create clear expectations.

It is recommended both parties maintain a dialogue within the Project Scope platform to be protected by the eRenovate Guarantee.

Once the project begins, and activated on the Project Scope platform, your communication or project changes that are agreed to outside of the Project Scope platform could impact the validity of any claim.

In the odd instance when a dispute occurs, it can usually be resolved directly with the Bonded Pro. However, to submit a Deposit Payment Theft or Maintenance issue, please fill out this form and submit it through the eRenovate Project ScopePlatform.

After we receive notification of your report, we’ll help resolve the issue. Our first priority is to facilitate conversations between you and the Bonded Pro to resolve the concerns directly.

If this is unsuccessful, we will then start our internal eRenovate Guarantee process to determine the best solution based on whether it was a Deposit Refund issue or a Workman ship related issue.

At eRenovate, we are homeowners too and understand the stress involved in home renovations, especially when issues arise. The good news is, the eRenovate Guarantee partners are well experienced in effectively resolving issues.The timeline for the resolution process is different in each case, with many different factors.

For Deposit Refund Protection, you can expect that within 15 days of the date that eRenovate provides written notice that the Deposit is due to the Homeowner, or that the project must be completed (the “Deposit Notice”), you will either receive a refund of your Deposit, or the Bonded Pro will have begun taking steps to complete your project. The length of time this can take will depend primarily upon the following:

  • - how quickly you reportthe issue to eRenovate via the Project Scope platform,
  • - the responsiveness of the Bonded Pro, and evaluating their situation,
  • - the communication between eRenovate, our Insurance partner and the Bonded Pro,
  • - contract, correspondence and other documentation between you and the Bonded Pro uploaded to the system.

For Maintenance related issues, you can expect that within 15 days of the date that eRenovate provides written notice that the Bonded Pro has failed to comply with the Maintenance Obligations (the “Maintenance Notice”) either the Bonded Pro or eRenovate will have begun rectifying the default of the Maintenance Obligations. The length of time that it will take eRenovate to issue the Maintenance Notice will depend primarily upon the following:

  • - how effectively you and the Bonded Pro communicate to resolve the matter,
  • - how quickly you respond to eRenovate
  • - the nature of the workmanship issue and complexity of your project
  • - contract, correspondence and other documentation between you and theBonded Pro uploaded to the system.
