With Extra and Essentials, you can choose from two levels of buildings cover to suit your needs. Whichever option you choose, you'll still get the same great service from a name you can trust.
Here's just some of the things that are covered with our Essentials buildings insurance and Extra buildings insurance so you can compare and see what level of cover is right for you. We've also provided a list of what isn't covered by our buildings insurance.
