We have many years’ experience working in the construction industry, including the self build and custom build sector. As members of the National Custom & Self Build Association (NaCSBA), we have a specialist understanding of the challenges faced by self build and custom build contractors and suppliers.

We are proud to be members of Constructing Excellence and the official and approved insurance broker to the Structural Timber Association (STA). We’ve worked with the timber sector for a number of years and have been instrumental in challenging the insurance market’s understanding and perception of the sector, achieving broader cover and premium savings for our clients.

Self build and custom build structural warranties

In 2015, our own structural warranty operation, Protek, was formed in order to offer structural warranties (latent defects insurance) to our existing and new clients. Protek’s 10-year structural warranty product range is backed by an ‘A’ rated insurer and is recognised by banks and building societies. It provides cover for defects in the design, workmanship, materials and components of the building.

The range includes a specific self build structural warranty and a custom build home warranty.
