10. October 2013 – the first and only carbon neutral new home warranty providers, offer up to 50% reduction on cost of warranty for all EBS elk Closed Timber Panel Building System projects.

EBS elk have been working with to provide ten year latent defects warranties for a number of their developments over the last three years.

Following an in-depth review of all their processes and procedures and a complete factory inspection at Elk Fertighaus’s main production plant, EBS elk’s manufacturing partner, have granted a “Type Approval” to the EBS elk system. has been so impressed by the consistent approach to quality, attention to detail and recording systems that EBS elk have in place that they have reduced the cost of the warranties as a result of the reduction in risk; in some cases by as much as 50%.

This bespoke approach to evaluating and insuring the risk is a testament to the very high level of quality control that takes place across all sectors of the build process, including design, supply, manufacture, transport, assembly, recording and monitoring of the buildings. This demonstrates the EBS elk Building System delivers a consistently high standard of construction. The Type Approval from takes away the risk that a warranty provider may not accept the system after the building has been completed. warranties are accepted by lenders who lend over 99.9% of all UK mortgages.
