Salman Haqqi, personal finance expert at money.co.uk said:
“Renovating your home can be a really exciting time, as it’s an opportunity to create a fresh new space without the hassle of having to move. However, it’s important to remember that most standard home insurance policies will not cover major renovation works, because there is an increased chance of something going wrong and you needing to make a claim.
“Most renovation projects will need separate cover for damage to building and content, theft of your content and building materials and personal accidents. It’s always worth reaching out to your existing home insurance provider to see if they can cover the work before your start. If not, you should consider taking out a specialist home renovation insurance policy to cover you in case the worst were to happen.”
