You’ve renovated your dream home, now it’s time to insure it…


As a renovator, the partner of a builder, home owner, landlord and interiors enthusiast, I deeply value the importance of stunning architecture, quality building work and interior design. From my years of experience in the design and building industry I know how much blood, sweat and tears goes into creating a beautiful home for yourself, whether you have designed and built it from a patch of dirt, gutted and renovated a home you have purchased or, if you have completed cosmetic upgrades to a home you have bought to make it your own and put your stamp on it. Regardless of how you did it, this home brings you joy and protecting this home and the happiness it brings you is so important.

When designing and renovating I pour my heart and soul into every single aspect; from the initial sketches, to floor-plans, choosing each and every fitting and fixture, hard surfaces, furniture selection to finding the perfect backyard pieces. Once these ideas, plans, processes and hard work are realised, it’s time to remember the importance of insuring the dream home you have created!

And that’s where RACV comes in…


RACV home insurance covers you for those unfortunate events that may happen to your home. It is a name you know and trust and a company who looks after its members’ interests. They offer a range of products to ensure that you are covered for just about everything that life throws at you and at your house! One of the key features I love is the automatic new for old replacement cover. It covers your belongings if they’re stolen or damaged, even if you leave a window or door open and there’s no sign of forced entry.


If you want to go a step further to protecting your beloved home, RACV offers a range of Home Security plans – and let’s be honest, your home is the biggest purchase that the most of us will ever make, so why wouldn’t we take that extra measure to protect it? From high quality CCTV systems, to smart security systems, security monitoring and patrols – RACV will tailor a solution to suit every family’s needs. Fun Fact - having a home alarm system could actually reduce your home insurance premium!

Now, we all know that life can and will throw curve balls at us, like a broken kitchen tap when you have a dinner party about to start or a burst water pipe in the middle of the night. And that’s where RACV’s Emergency Home Assist comes in to save the day. It’s a fast response service for common plumbing, electrical and lock out emergencies and it has 24/7 coverage with no out of hours’ surcharges. You can also feel safe knowing that you will always receive a qualified tradesperson at your door step within the hour.
