Self Build Warranties

Building your own home can be a dream come true. Our Warranty cover is designed to protect your dream from problems after completion. No matter how much care you or your contractor take there is always a risk of defects. That is where our warranty comes in – to provide you with security, protection and peace of mind for 10 years after you finish your home.

Our technical support and resources can also help you during construction. Our technical manual and experienced surveyors are an invaluable source of advice and guidance to ensure your dream becomes a reality.
