Hello, We have completed our self build and although we had site insurance during the construction, we now need buildings and contents insurance while we live in it. That would seem easy except I'm hitting a brick wall (sorry about pun) because we have used what is described as non-standard construction materials. I cannot tick the box for bricks nor for slates. the house has been made from Durisol woodcrete blocks and has a membrane roof in a wave shape with zinc flashing and enclosed gutters. We want to make sure we are covered for all eventualities and not have an insurance company come back to say we didn't provide accurate materials. Does anyone have experience of finding an insurance company who will quote for a more unusual building and materials? Thanks in advance. K
