If you’re looking to upgrade your home, it can come with risks. Renovations can lead to property damage, mistakes can occur, and issues appear. All of which can be time-consuming as well as expensive to put right. With this in mind, renovation insurance can provide the peace of mind that you need when you’re doing up your property.
What is Renovation Insurance?
Renovation insurance is a type of property insurance that can provide protection for the home while it is being upgraded and renovated. The insurance can cover the existing structure as well as the materials and new work completed. Renovation insurance can also cover the tools, equipment and plant machinery on site during the completion of the work.
Is my Builder’s Public Liability Enough?
Most reputable builders will have public liability insurance. However, in order to make a claim on their insurance, you need to prove their work was negligent. This can often be difficult to determine and can take an incredibly long time to process.
What’s more, many people undertake their own renovations or get family and friends to help. In which case, any damage caused to the property or people on site would not have insurance. Regular home insurance policies do not cover periods of renovation. When people have the potential to suffer harm or injury from home improvements, then having renovation insurance will mean you have the necessary protection. It means you can cover the cost whether you are defending or pursuing a claim.
When considering the cost of renovations and the additional costs if work suffers damage by fire, flooding or storms, the small sum for renovation insurance can undoubtedly pay off in the long-term as well as providing much-needed peace of mind during a usually stressful time.
