Buildings Cover Calculator Guideline Cost
The rebuild cost produced here should be treated as a guideline to the MINIMUM value for which you should insure the structure of your home.
Applying these rates to the area of your house will give you a base cost to which you should add cover for other costs, such as boundary walls, garages, etc.
The insurance value for houses varies greatly depending on the type of house, i.e., Georgian, modern, with or without basement, etc. The costs here are based on typical, speculatively built modern homes which were built since the 1960s.
If you have another type of house, for instance a Georgian or Victorian house, the guide rebuild cost given here will not be appropriate to adequately insure your home.
If your home is of this more unusual type, you should have a reinstatement cost assessment carried out by a Chartered Quantity Surveyor.
The Rebuild Cost given in our Buildings Cover Calculator is based on a total loss situation, i.e., the home has been totally destroyed and has to be rebuilt.
The Rebuild Cost given in our Buildings Cover Calculator does not include any allowance for contents such as carpets, curtains, loose furniture and domestic appliances.
