Home Improvement, Guaranteed

With Bolster, you get a reliable home improvement contractor and a Guarantee from a leading insurer that your renovation will be completed on time and on budget.

The Bolster Guarantee

Peace of mind you can buy

If your contractor doesn’t deliver results on-time and on-budget, we step in with the funds and a new contractor to finish the job as promised.

No more worrying about going over budget, shoddy workmanship, or costly delays. For a mere 3.5% of your contract value (e.g. $700 for a $20,000 job), your home improvement project is insured and guaranteed.

Relax, we’ve got you covered

The Full Story

How Our Guarantee Works

With Bolster, when you commit your personal finances to the success of your project, your contractor does the same.

To remodel with Bolster, contractors post a special surety bond with our insurers guaranteeing the performance of their contractual duties to our customers. We call this bond the Bolster Remodeling Bond. In exchange for your contractor’s Bond and your purchase of a Guarantee, our insurers agree to use their funds and resources to deliver your project as promised in the event your contractor fails to perform.
