We cover up to £5000 if there is a leak from water tanks, pipes or fixed heating systems which is causing damage in the home. We will also pay the reasonable costs for removing and replacing any other part of the building necessary to find and repair the source of the leak. As it’s a common problem among flat roofed properties, we do ask you to have an inspection carried out on your home every eight years to identify any issues.

You can add homecare emergency cover to your policy which gives you access to a 24-hour helpline.

Flat Roof Home Insurance FAQs

Question

Why do I need a flat roof insurance policy instead of a standard home insurance policy?

Answer

A flat roof has a shorter life span than a tiled roof, and as a result they are more prone to leaking. As a result, some insurers who provide standard home insurance may exclude properties constructed with a flat roof or provide limited cover for claims like leaks. Our policy can provide cover for flat roof homes and cater for the risks associated with the construction.

Question

Does it matter what percentage of my roof is flat?

Answer

What’s more important to us is the state of repair of the roof. We will need to know roughly how much of your roof is flat, but we can usually accommodate for any percentage.

Question

Can you cover asbestos roofs?

Answer

We can consider a roof that is constructed from asbestos providing it does not exceed 49% of the total roof. This can be considered on referral to our Specialist Property team.

Question

Can you cover my rubber membranes flat roof?

Answer
