Home advice

Even if your home is insured, it's still worth thinking about how you can avoid any unnecessary hassle and stress. We've put together some advice to help you prevent some of the most common emergencies that might affect your home.


In this section, we've aimed to provide some helpful advice to homeowners about preventing problems that might damage their home. It shouldn't be considered a substitute for professional and tailored advice so you should always speak to a suitably qualified expert about your home and any problems you're facing before following any of the tips provided. You should also make sure that your insurance isn't affected by any work you want to carry out yourself and remember to never place yourself, others or any property at risk at any time.
