Self-Build Insurance
Expert cover for your site and structure

Self-build safely with flexible, cost-effective self-build insurance – designed by experts for projects like yours.


Protect your project while it’s built, and when it’s built

Every self-build project starts with a vision. Your vision. Whether you’re designing your ideal home from the ground up or giving a new lease of life to an older property, self-building is always rewarding – but it can be risky. Self-build insurance protects your project from the start.

At Self-Build Zone, we’ve been insuring self-builds, renovations, conversions, extensions and more since 2002. We understand the hard work you put in, so our award-winning cover is built to your needs. From building site insurance to your structural warranty, we’re here to help your self-build vision come true.

Self-build home insurance – specialist cover from day one

Every self-build project takes time, hard work and significant financial investment – so you need insurance for a self-build from the moment you purchase the plot, even if there are no buildings already on-site.

We provide flexible, custom-built insurance for self-builders, including house build insurance that covers the range of risks you face during construction, and structural warranty insurance to protect your property against any latent defects in the design, materials or workmanship for 10 years after completion – making it easier for you to sell.

We understand building your home may be one of the biggest investments you ever make. With us, you’ve got the peace of mind your self-build is protected properly throughout construction – and for the future too.

Your self-build project. Our specialist protection.

The self-build insurance you need, all in one place

You always need robust insurance when building a house. With home insurance rarely covering property alterations and most builders’ policies only active when they’re working, self-build house insurance is the best way to make sure that you’re properly protected at all times during any building works.

Our building site insurance is specially designed to protect everything about your self-build project from the moment you purchase your plot – including you, the works carried out, any people on site, and any buildings already there.

Plus, we can supply your 10-year structural warranty insurance – which covers any structural defects that may appear after you’ve finished building. As most mortgage lenders require new-builds to have a structural warranty in place, this is essential if you need a mortgage or wish to sell.

Our expert, friendly team have over 20 years of experience protecting self-build projects of all shapes and sizes. Just give us a call to find out more – we’ll be happy to help.
