Huf Haus Insurance

When standard home insurance falls short

Insuring a Huf Haus can be a challenge. Unfamiliar with this type of property, many insurance companies will either refuse to provide cover or charge exorbitant premiums and excesses, especially for glass. Thankfully, a bespoke solution is now available for Huf Haus owners who don’t want to pay a small fortune to protect their home.

What’s our approach to Huf Haus Insurance?

When we were asked to arrange insurance for our first Huf Haus we were surprised by the number of insurers who turned us down. More than 10 years on, we work with a panel of specialist insurers who understand the needs of Huf Haus owners and are prepared to provide flexible cover with generous limits – all at a competitive price.

 

"Recommended by Huf Haus and the Huf Haus Owners Club, we now insure more than 90 Huf Haus properties – and we’ve successfully handled more than 20 Huf Haus claims over the past 10 years. We can also insure other prefabricated homes such as Hanse Haus, Baufritz, Scandia-Hus, Meisterstueck Haus and WeberHaus."

Could your jewellery or watches be underinsured?

How Huf Haus Insurance protects you

Huf Haus Insurance is a specialist home and contents policy with extra features such as no excess for accidental damage to glass. Most importantly, in the event of a claim you’re covered for Huf Haus approved parts and contract work.


Because every Huf Haus is unique, you need specialist cover with flexible terms and generous limits.

  • Glass cover – there’s no excess for claims related to glass breakages or damage
  • Specialist repairs – all contract work and replacement parts and products are Huf House approved
  • Worldwide ‘all risks’ cover – for contents, personal effects, art, antiques and jewellery
A Huf Haus requires specialist cover because only Huf Haus can repair or rebuild the property.
Why you should consider Huf Haus Insurance 
  • Because a Huf Haus is constructed from prefabricated timber and glass, it doesn’t fall into the widely used, but heavily restricted, description of ‘standard construction’ recognised by most insurance companies.
  • A standard home insurance policy will always require two estimates for repairs and go with the cheapest. Like a listed building, a Huf Haus requires specialist cover because only Huf Haus can repair or rebuild the property.
  • Constructed to a very high standard, a Huf Haus can be expensive to rebuild – so it’s worth finding a specialist insurer who will cater for higher value homes, preferably one who is prepared to carry out a rebuilding valuation of the property.
  • Huf Haus Insurance can include a guaranteed rebuilding cost known as Extended Replacement – so you don’t have to worry about the impact of exchange rate fluctuations.
  • With standard home insurance policies, the excess for Huf Haus glass claims can be as high as £1,000. And the design of most Huf Haus window locks proves problematic for many insurers who insist that key operated locks are fitted to all accessible windows.
