Self Build Insurance

Protecting your new build

Whether you’re building a home from scratch or renovating an existing property, self-build and renovation insurance can help keep things on track should the unthinkable happen.

It is tailored specifically to meet your insurance needs and provides you with the security that your project is protected against a wide range of threats, whether that’s building a new home or undertaking an extension or renovation to your existing home 

The Self-Build policy can provide cover for: 

  • Loss or damage to the property caused by a fire, accidental damage, storms, floods, theft or vandalism. 
  • On site theft of tools, equipment and machinery. 
  • Temporary buildings such as huts, caravans or containers. 
  • Employers Liability.  
  • Public liability. 
  • Completion of work to a high standard. Tips on reducing risk at the beginning of your project

Extension Cover

It’s important to ensure that you have adequate cover if you are renovating or adding an extension to your home, as your existing home insurance doesn’t normally cover the associated risks that can arise in an extension project. 

How to mitigate risk:

  • Find the right insurance policy that is specific to your project needs.
  • Secure the site with proper fencing.
  • Make sure health and safety signs are up and clear to see.
  • Comply with scaffolding guidelines and regulations.
