NHBC Warranty and Structural Insurance

Posted 14 August 2015 by Keith Osborne

NHBC is one of the largest providers of warranties and structural insurance for new build homes in the UK

Over 1.6 million homes in the UK are covered by Buildmark, the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) leading warranty and insurance product for newly built homes.

NHBC stands NHBC logoas the country’s leading independent standard-setting body and, with its 80-year history, holds a market share of almost 80% in February 2015.

Setting the standards for new homes

NHBC registered builders agree to build to standards defined, set and regulated by NHBC. Each home is checked by one of NHBC’s technical experts at important stages during the build, from the foundations to final completion.

Supporting the house-building industry

NHBC’s role is to work with the house-building industry to raise the standards of new homes and to provide consumer protection for homebuyers. With no shareholders, it is able to invest surpluses in research and other standards-raising activities to improve the quality of UK house-building. It also works with government and stakeholders to help shape housing policy.

Recognising excellence in house-building quality

Through its annual Pride in the Job awards scheme, NHBC recognises its registered builders who reach the highest standards of build quality. A Pride in the Job Award demonstrates that a builder loves what they do and that they have delivered a home/homes, over and above the standard that NHBC requires.

Ten-year warranty and insurance cover for new homes

As a long established and trusted brand, NHBC’s experience in house-building is unrivalled.  And, as a regulated* insurance company, homeowners have the reassurance of knowing that they can rely on the protection offered by the ten-year Buildmark warranty and insurance cover.
