Self-build Site Insurance
Your self-build insurance should usually be in place from the moment you exchange contracts on the property or land. This is to ensure that you have the correct cover in place from the moment your exposure to risk starts. Self-build insurance protects you against risk during the planning, construction, renovation or conversion process. Accordingly, risks you face along the way like fire, theft, storm damage or accidental damage to property or people are provided for. It is a comprehensive package. Self-build insurance works on renovation, conversion and extension projects too.
Protek is an experienced self-build insurance provider, trusted by many thousands of customers. This means we understand your requirements and can provide you with the cover you need. Importantly, we work hard to tailor the insurance protection to suit the type of project you are undertaking. In conclusion, this means you are only selecting and paying for the essential elements of cover you need.
It’s a really good idea to consider a 10 year structural warranty on your project. Firstly because workmanship or design defects can occur during the construction process and may remain undiscovered for several years. But also, because these defects tend only manifest into a problem after the property is completed. This could result in substantial issues in the structure or weatherproof envelope which will be costly to fix. A structural warranty policy helps you to mitigate those costs.
Your lender will require a structural warranty. Mainly because it helps secure their lending risk on your project. But also, because the lender must have the project checked extensively during the course of construction. Our self-build structural warranty has been designed specifically for that purpose and is therefore acceptable to lenders.
Protek enjoys wide acceptance by banks and building societies in the UK. Accordingly, choosing Protek as your waranty provider should make it easier to get a mortgage in place. For more information check out our lender approvals page.
