Does Home Insurance Cover Home Renovations?

Most conventional house and contents insurance policies don’t necessarily cover the added risk from contract works taking place inside the home. Insurers can remove cover entirely or reduce to a minimum cover. Whether your home is undergoing a structural, internal or major renovation, it’s important to make your standard home insurer aware of any contract works before they start. If cover is not provided by a standard home insurer we recommend our specialist Home Works Insurance to help protect you against claims during renovations to your home.
