Home Extension Insurance

Building a home extension is a proven way to enhance and add value to your property. Yet from an insurance point of view, it also carries risks – to your existing property, your new extension, your builders and their equipment. Household and Unoccupied Property insurance is never enough to cover these risks. Please see our FAQs for details.

That’s why you must take out home extension insurance. With ProAktive’s specialised coverage, you can get a policy at a competitive price.
