DIY home insurance
DIY can seem like the ideal solution to your small repair job. However, homeowners who make changes to their property without following expert advice can soon find themselves struggling with much larger issues. If you have a go at fixing a leaky tap and end up causing damage to the pipe and flooding your kitchen, then you could soon be wishing that you had DIY insurance in place!
Accidental Damage cover
A Homeprotect policy has two options when it comes to Accidental Damage cover within the home. Basic cover can protect you from small misfortunes, such as damaging sanitary ware, your underground water supply and fixed glassware. However, if you're doing a lot of DIY, you may want to upgrade to full accidental damage which covers you for DIY disasters like drilling through a water pipe.
Homeowners planning larger projects or making structural changes will need renovation insurance. Accidental Damage cover is not available while renovations are being conducted.
If you are considering renovations, get in touch and we can discuss modifying your cover to take insurance for building work into account.
