Renovation insurance

Why do you a need renovation insurance policy?

Renovating a property to turn it into your dream home could potentially provide you with extra space and value. However, renovation projects do come with a degree of risk. 

In the first instance you should check with your insurer whether your existing home insurance policy covers you before you start any work.  If it’s a particularly large project, additional insurance cover (a renovation insurance policy) may be needed. This will ensure that if a problem does occur you have appropriate cover in place.

Our renovation insurance helps you:

  • Protect your home
    During a renovation your home could be subject to a number of risks; damage, fire, theft of materials etc. Renovation insurance can help ensure you are covered.
  • Protect your treasured possessions
    We would always recommend removing or securing all valuable or delicate items in your home during a period of work to minimise the risk of accidental damage. If the worst does happen your renovations insurance will typically respond to pay the costs of repairing / replacing your precious items.

Personal dedicated service

Each of our clients and their families have their own dedicated Client Executive looking after them. As our clients' needs change and develop, so do their policies.


We work with a variety of insurers, risk management and security consultants to identify the best ways to improve the protection afforded to our clients' most valuable assets. This means we can provide an impartial solution that works.

High value home insurance

Are you aware of the true value of your home? Are you confident you know the cost of a full rebuild, or the cost of replacing all your belongings? Property underinsurance is a common problem. Total rebuild costs are often overlooked, leaving many high-value items without cover under “one-size-fits-all” insurance policies. Our prestige home insurance offers more.


Second home insurance

When you own a second home (or maybe multiple homes) you will want to ensure that it is as protected as your primary home. By their very nature second homes may have different risk exposures, they aren’t always occupied and they may be overseas.
