If your property is not covered by a valid Premier Guarantee structural warranty
policy and you are unlikely to qualify under any other remediation scheme (see below),
then unfortunately remediation will need to be funded privately. The cost of remediation
however, is often less than the market devaluation of your property due to the highly
charged public perception of the pyrite problem. In addition, many people wish to
undertake upgrade works at the same time as the pyrite remediation works such as
energy efficiency upgrades, internal finishes upgrades or extensions. Premier Guarantee
does not generally encourage such works concurrent with their own.
Pyrite Solutions Ireland offer a complete service providing remediation of pyrite
affected properties and upgrade works if so required. We will fully manage the remediation
process and upon completion provide certification in accordance with I.S. 398-2:2013.
The Pyrite Resolution Board has now issued its requirements for qualification to
its forthcoming pyrite remediation scheme via its website. The scheme is to be funded
by the proceeds of a statutory levy on certain insurance products and quarried aggregate
material. Click on the P.R.B. tab in the navigation bar at the top of this page for
further information and links regarding the Pyrite Remediation Scheme.
