Keep track of your insurance during renovations on your home

The best insurance against disaster during a home renovation is to employ trusted, quality builders for the job. That way, you can rest in the knowledge that expert hands are looking after your property and following industry best-practices.

But, of course, there are always potential risks when construction is involved, and having home insurance is always a prudent idea. At Supa Group, we can help you understand your home insurance policy, and point out important things you should be aware of.

Home owners should let their insurance providers know about upcoming builds. We can inform you about this process, and also give you advice on everything from from vacancy clauses to building insurance policies.

About Supa Group

Just like our home extensions and renovations, Supa Group has stood the test of time.

Now owned and operated by Neil Gardiner, Supa Group’s original commitment has remained the same. Today, our clients are still offered the peace of mind that comes with hiring a builder who takes projects from conception to completion.

Our reputation as a multi-award-winning master builder is built upon a foundation of commitment to quality. We are proud to deliver best possible outcomes for our clients, and we want to do the same for you. Contact us for a free design consultation, and begin building towards the future.

FAQs

What insurance do I need when renovating a house?

The specific insurance you’ll require for a house renovation will depend on the kind of work being undertaken, and the amount the property needs to be insured for.

A building insurance policy requires that you know the total cost of replacement of the home. With a renovation that adds value to a house, making it bigger, better looking and more useful, the old policy may leave you underinsured.

It’s a process our team has been through countless times, and we’ll be happy to help walk you through the steps of updating your insurance.

Do I have to talk to my insurance provider before renovations?

We strongly encourage you to discuss your home insurance policy before we embark on renovations. Some policies can become void when home extensions are undertaken, leaving you without protection and facing a long and complicated struggle with your insurer in the unlikely event that something goes wrong.

Before we start work, it’s a good idea for you to talk to your insurer, find out what your coverage is, and see if anything will change during home renovations.

What are vacancy clauses in home insurance?

Some home insurance policies become void after a set period of non-occupation. The downside of this is that if you haven’t resided in your house for a certain period of time, you won’t benefit from the protections of your home insurance policy during the renovation.

There are a few potential workarounds. If you’d like to continue residing at your property during the renovations, there’s a good chance we can accommodate that request. We require you to have access to some of your amenities (like the bathroom and your bedroom) but for many kinds of extension and renovation we can continue to work while you live on site.

If that’s not possible or desirable, there are other options. We’ll be able to provide you with a timeline for the job, and you’ll have the opportunity to discuss the impact of that timeline on your coverage with your insurer. The answer might be to change your insurance policy, or change our construction plans to suit your needs.

What our customers are saying

Danny and Melissa of Coburg

Our building supervisor Braidon Marshall was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, approachable and accessible when we had a few issues out of hours. We sprung a leak on one rather rainy night, and he came to the rescue after his birthday dinner no less!

David and Joanne of Clifton Hill

I thoroughly recommend Supa Group as their customer first policy and workmanship has been of the highest quality

Andrew and Mark of Yarraville

Despite all the stories you hear about how difficult building can be it was a fairly painless process thanks to the professionalism of the Supa Group team and the quality of their people. We even lived in the house throughout the process.
