Posted by SELF BUILD INSURANCE on October 29th, 2019

Why have these kinds of insurance for new buildings?

 Any property is always at a risk of damage especially since it is usually not a part of a large developmental project that has around-the-clock security. There is also the chance of physical damage such as vandalism, theft, storms, fire or even accidental damage. In some cases,self-build insurance has protected builders from loss of material such as ironmongery, flooring, bricks and even lighting that has been stolen. If you are setting up workers huts or temporary shelters, then this insurance will cover that as well. It is always advisable to get employers and public liability so you can be stress-free even if something unexpected happens.

 Benefits of full coverage 

The advantage of self-build insurance is that it can cover your construction project from start to finish. You have the option to pick the duration whether it is for one month, six months, two years or more. If the work extends beyond the initial time estimate, then the insurance can be extended accordingly. It covers different kinds of property such as water towers, churches, barns, houses etc. It also covers different kinds of extension work such as loft conversion which your regular home insurance may not cover. Often people think that the coverage offered by the contractor is adequate for the entire. However, if you are getting any of the materials on your own, then the contractor will not be able to cover this. Further, if you have taken a mortgage then they may not accept the policy of your contractor and will require you to have your own policy. With suitable self-build insurance you don’t have to worry about injuries sustained by visitors, workmen or contractors on the plot. 

Home renovations 

While making changes to your house may not seem as complicated as building a new one, there are certainly several associated risks especially when the house or building is not occupied. Prior to beginning work, it is always advisable to get house renovation insurance which covers the tools, machinery and the people who will be working on the project. Your insurance firm will want to know several details such as the estimated costs, duration of the project, detailed plan of the work, and the people involved. Once the details are clear, they will work out a policy that is perfect for your requirement.

Finding the right firm

When looking for providers who offer self-build or house renovation insurance, ensure that you opt for an experienced firm who has hands-on and practical experience in dealing with claims. They should be able to clearly highlight all the important facets of the policy and explain it in simple and transparent terms.
