Ask yourself if you could afford to rebuild your home and extension out of your own pocket if something went wrong. If the answer is no, then providers such as Self-Build Zone can help to ensure your site is covered for the duration of the build, and afterwards.

Self-Build Zone’s latest Home Improvement Package provides cover on a property while being improved or extended, even if you aren’t initially living there, plus it covers all the new works and materials, right up to completion of the project.

As part of the package, tools and equipment on site are also protected, while employers’ and public liability insurance means that anyone working on site is covered if they suffer an injury, or if damage is caused to a third party or their property.

What’s more, thanks to Self-Build Zone’s legal expenses cover, if you have a dispute with a supplier or employee such as the builder running off without finishing the job, the cost of pursuing a claim is covered. There is also an additional contract on offer for any tradespeople or contractors that you employ to legally protect yourself from possible negligence.

Self-Build Zone’s in house team are able to facilitate an alternative to the local authority by using their own approved inspectors carry out the building control and technical audits throughout the build, which can save you time and money. Self-Build Zone’s comprehensive protection packages also include the option to purchase a 10-year structural warranty. A Structural warranty will protect your project for 10 years for the work, to protect you against defects in design, materials and workmanship on its completion.
