There are several ways to calculate the cost of rebuilding your home, including:
- Using an online calculator such as the Cordell Sum Sure 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. Each home is unique; made from a variety of different materials, to different qualities and sizes and it is important that the sum insured reflects this.
For a full description of what’s included as part of your home, please read the ‘Your home includes’ section of your AA Insurance Home Insurance policy document.
