Home Insurance Cover - While Building an Extension to Home

    Just wondering if normal home insurance cover still applies while building an extension at the home, or does this work "void" home insurance cover.

    Thank you

    You need to notify your home insurer. They’ll probably need you to fill out a questionnaire and increase your cover temporarily as you need to make sure your cover is adequate during the renovations. When we did it our monthly premium temporarily increased by about €5 a month.

    You might also need temporary cover for your contents if stored elsewhere during the work.
