- Using an online calculator such as the Cordell Online Calculator*. The Cordell Online Calculator provides estimated typical building replacement costs for standard residential homes.
- Obtaining a valuation completed by a builder, architect, quantity surveyor or other building expert.
There are many details that need to be taken into account when assessing the rebuild cost of your home, and because no one knows your home better than you do it’s up to you to determine the rebuild value of your home and provide your Sum Insured.
