Will I pay more for timber-framed home insurance?

That depends on the insurance provider you select. It could be preferable to choose one that specialises in non-standard home insurance.

The ideal way to make sure you get a good price for timber-framed home insurance is to compare quotes, which you can do online with Compare the Market.  

What will my policy cover me for?

This will vary from provider to provider, so it’s very important to read the fine print when assessing a quote. Some will provide cover for insect damage and rot, while others won’t. Compare quotes until you find the right level of cover to suit your needs.

What information do I need to provide when applying for non-standard home insurance?

It’s essential you clearly state that your home is timber-framed as some insurance providers won’t offer cover for non-standard houses. You will also need to let the provider know if your timber-framed home was built without a foundation. This could add to your risk profile, as timber-framed homes lacking a foundation are more vulnerable to subsidence. All of this information will make it possible for the insurance provider to supply you with its fairest quote.
