Before picking up any tools on a renovation or extension project, it is important to protect yourself from anything that could go wrong. And this means checking appropriate Site Insurance is in place before starting work.

Cases where homeowners have failed to do this include when a couple's terrace house collapsed while adding a basement extension and a fire destroying another couple's building project. Both found themselves in dire financial positions because they weren't properly insured.
