While this type of renovation feels minor and is often under our new building work benefit limit of $75,000, it is not something that is covered under our home and landlord insurance policies. This is because the roofing material is removed and leaves the home exposed to the elements.
You can find the full details of what's covered under your home policy in your policy document, under the section 'Standard benefits - cover automatically included', under 'New building work'.
If you find your renovations fall outside of what's covered by our home policy, such as re-roofing your home, we may still be able to help. Please get in touch before you start any renovations to your home and our team will be able to confirm how we can cover you.
