Timber frame house insurance
Insuring a timber frame house is easier than you might think!
Non-standard building materials are a challenge for standard insurers. When it comes to timber frames, it can be difficult to get cover as this type of property is seen as being more susceptible to fire and flooding. That said, timber homes are growing in popularity. Timber is widely accessible, not to mention affordable, and can be assembled on site much quicker than other construction methods.
Know your building, inside and out
Every property is unique and we want to make sure that you get the cover that you need at the best possible premium. A timber frame home can be quite a complicated property to insure, for instance it may be a self-build eco home, or it may be a listed building constructed of wattle and daub. Although both are timber, they fall into supplementary unusual categories, so it’s important to declare as much as possible about your house in order to find the right quote.
With HomeProtect you can obtain a competitive online quote for home insurance, no matter how unusual your property is. Similarly, if you are thinking of buying a home constructed with non-standard building materials like timber frames then we can help.
