Our 10 year Build-Zone Structural Warranty product will protect your completed home against a defect in the design, workmanship or materials.


Self-build Site Insurance is essential for anyone planning an Extension, Renovation, Conversion or New Build.


A contract is the glue that seals the relationship between a client and their contractor, consultant or supplier and is crucial for your project.

I’m doing works to my own home; do my home insurance providers cover me?

Self-Build Zone is able to provide you with insurance once you have purchased your land for development as well as site insurance during the course of the work; we are also able to provide you with a warranty when your house is completed.

A lot of people don’t know that their normal home insurance is not designed to cover their property whilst it is undergoing a conversion, renovation or extensions are being carried out. When they then come to claiming for problems which might have occurred they then find that they are not covered and receive no support.

In order to be covered whilst you are having done to your property, ensure that you have a site insurance policy in place.

Building or creating a home, either from scratch or as a conversion or renovation project can be one of the most rewarding challenges of your life. The type of project you are embarking on will invariably involve a significant amount of investment, so ensuring you have the correct level of cover in place is essential.

Risk can exist in familiar issues like liability, theft, storm damage and fire but also unfamiliar issues like tradesmen not completing the works satisfactorily, or your contractor utilising unsuitable materials to complete your project or your builder accidentally damaging your home. We have a vast amount of experience in providing the insurance you require and a deep understanding of the types of projects you are likely to undertake, so you can count on us to take care of your needs.

Our cover doesn’t stop there; you can also purchase our 10 Year Structural Warranty which protects your home for 10 years from completion against defects in design, materials and workmanship. Should you wish to sell your property at some point in the future; a Build-Zone Warranty will give your purchaser the peace of mind that it is covered by a Lender Approved Structural Warranty.
