What does a GoldShield warranty cover?
A GoldShield warranty covers any inherent structural faults with your lodge. This includes exterior elements, such as your wall frame, underfloor insulation, and chassis, as well as interior components like your lodge's flooring, ceilings, and walls. The warranty also covers your roof, windows, and doors.
For a complete breakdown of what the warranty covers, be sure to visit the GoldShield website.
How long does a GoldShield warranty last?
A GoldShield warranty lasts 10 years. During this time, it has two distinct periods: the Initial Period and the Continuing Warranty Period. Both offer a different level of cover.
The Initial Period lasts two years from the date you purchase your lodge or three years from its date of manufacture (whichever ends earliest). During this time, you're protected by the manufacturer's warranty, which covers the whole structure of the lodge and all its fixtures and fittings.
Once the Initial Period is over, you'll be covered by the Continuing Warranty Period, which lasts eight years. This will protect you against any hidden structural defects that affect your lodge. Any faults should be reported to GoldShield during this time rather than the manufacturer of your lodge.
How do I register my lodge with GoldShield?
You can register your lodge with GoldShield if it has been built to British Standard BS3632 , it was constructed by a manufacturer that is a member of the GoldShield scheme, and it is located on a GoldShield-registered site.
The GoldShield warranty is paid for by your lodge manufacturer, so it comes with the price of your home.
When you purchase your lodge, you'll receive a Home Owner's Application Form. You'll need to complete this and send it to GoldShield within 90 days from the start of using your lodge to avoid a late registration fee. You can still register for a GoldShield warranty once the initial 90-day period has passed, but you will be charged a sign-up fee — visit the GoldShield website for details.
How do I keep my GoldShield warranty valid?
In order to meet the requirements of your GoldShield warranty you have to meet certain maintenance criteria. This is to ensure that any faults that develop have not been caused by neglect. You can get the full list of requirements on the GoldShield site.
As the costs of maintaining your lodge can add up, you may be interested in signing up to the GoldShield Care scheme. For a monthly fee, this will ensure all the maintenance work required to keep your lodge within warranty is carried out for you by an independent contractor. It will also help you budget for you annual lodge maintenance costs.
The GoldShield warranty will give you peace of mind and protect you from unexpected structural repair bills. Hopefully this quick guide has given you an understanding of what kind of cover you can expect under your GoldShield warranty.
