Site insurance is essential when you are carrying out a self build, renovation, extension or conversion project. The policy provides cover for the new work and materials, liability and other risks faced during the project. You will normally take it out at the point of ‘Exchange contracts’ or immediately prior to works starting. Your cover then continues through the construction process until the project is completed and taken into use. Protek’s policy has been specifically designed to provide cover against the physical loss or damage that is inherent in the type of building project being undertaken.

Site insurance provides cover in two main ways:
Physical damage: Helps protect you against physical loss or damage to the works, materials, plant, caravans, tools and equipment used throughout the project. A fire loss, accidental damage, weather related loss, theft and vandalism all fall into this area of site insurance cover.
Liability: By covering your incurred liability in the event you inadvertently damage someone else’s property or cause injury to another person during the course of the build. The effects of damaging a neighbouring property are easily understood, but you may not realise that you have responsibility for Health & Safety on the site and an injured worker could sue you following an accident, however minor. This is why it is essential to cover your liability.
Flexibility in the site insurance policy is key:
The inherent flexibility of Protek’s site insurance policy can be key. You can pick and choose the cover duration to suit your project timelines. You can also select an excess that suits your risk appetite. We realise not everything will always go to plan so if you need more time or you suffer a loss on your site we will be on hand to provide the service you need. Use our online quotation system to get a quote tailored to your specific needs and secure cover quickly. Once your policy is in place it remains flexible. So you can change the options as needed through the life-cycle of your project.
