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 twelve months. However, Dulux will not pay for any losses or costs that are not directly covered
by the Terms and Conditions of this Guarantee.
The liability to Dulux under the Guarantee is capped at twice the invoiced cost of the work.
