Self Build Warranty

Our Self Build warranty is designed to protect people building their dream home.

The policy provides 10 years of cover against structural defects and protects the homeowner directly. Meaning that in the case of a valid claim there would be no need to prove who was responsible, thus avoiding a costly investigation and stressful litigation.
