Insuring a property undergoing renovation, refurbishment or extension
Insurance for property undergoing renovation is available now from our specialist property insurance brokers - you can obtain a quote for your property renovation project today.
Property renovation insurance cover typically includes:
- Renovation and restoration work
- Property conversions - domestic or commercial
- Existing buildings and new works
- Public and employer's liability cover
- Contract works insurance
- Plant and tools cover
- Site huts and temporary caravans on site
Whether you are carrying out your own property renovation, for either domestic or commercial property renovation or if you have retained the services of professional contractors, you may not have considered the implications for your home insurance or commercial property insurance; property renovation insurance is a specialised area and it is important to bear in mind that your standard household or commercial premises insurance will not necessarily provide cover for properties undergoing major refurbishment or restoration.
"The propery was stripped back to its bare walls and we were unable to live on site during the period it was undergoing restoration - we needed insurance that covered the house refurbishment, rather than the contractors."
QuoteRack has partnered with expert insurance brokers who specialise in property renovation insurance cover and who understand the various types of risk associated with this type of building project insurance. If you are giving serious thought to restoring or refurbishing a property, either for sale, letting or owner-occupation, we can pass your details to brokers who will be able to assist with any questions you may have regarding property renovation insurance.
"We undertook the renovation of an old business property, with a view to providing serviced office accommodation; comparing insurance cover for commercial property undergoing renovation required the services of a highly specialised insurance broker"
