Self-Build Site Insurance

Site Insurance is necessary to protect your investment when you’re carrying out a renovation, conversion, extension or new build. Our self build site insurance policies cover the new work, existing structure and rest of the site. It protects against the likes of losses, fire theft, flood, storm damage, vandalism and accidental damage. See the specific project pages for in-depth information on Self-Build Zone’s Self Build Insurance.

Site Insurance is to be taken out as soon as contracts have been exchanged or right before work is about to start on your self build site. Our site insurance policies include public liability cover to protect you before you even start work. You will be covered from this moment, throughout the construction process, right up until work is complete and the building is in use. 

Our Site Insurance policies will protect your site against any physical damage that may occur throughout the construction process. This includes physical loss or damage to the work itself and to any tools, materials and equipment on the site. 

Not only does our self build insurance cover physical damage - Legal Expenses cover is included as standard with all of our Site Insurance policies (excluding Developers Insurance). We understand that self build projects can be complex due to the variety of trades working on site and the risks that are associated with this and the work itself. If any disputes arise, the legal team will be on hand to provide essential legal advice where needed. 

When choosing the right site insurance for you, you will also have the opportunity to purchase our ContractStore contract package to help you ensure you have a properly written contract to protect you against further accidents that may happen on site.

Need a Structural Warranty?

A Self-Build Zone 10 Year Structural Warranty is one of the best ways to protect your project against the effect that a major structural defect could have. Should you wish to sell the property at some point in the future, a Self-Build Zone 10 Year Structural Warranty will give you the peace of mind that the building was completed professionally and that it is covered by a lender-approved warranty.
