Why choose NHBC?

Six reasons to choose NHBC to inspect and protect your housing development

Our vast experience and in-depth technical knowledge mean we are continually evolving standards, to offer you and your residents reassurance that homes are built to the best quality.

We're the UK's largest new-home warranty provider and can support your development team at every stage of the build programme. We can get involved with projects from the start to help control risk and costs, and stay involved once homes are occupied.

Our warranty and insurance cover is specifically designed for the social housing sector and can be flexed to match your needs and appetite for risk. We provide Buildmark warranty products for both sale and rental properties.

Our inspectors, surveyors and engineers have different skills, but share the same passion for quality. They aren't afraid to get their hands and boots dirty to help you avoid costly future claims and protect residents' comfort and safety.

We're the only self-underwriting insurer in the UK new-home warranty market, so our prices reflect our confidence that new homes meet the highest standards. We are transparent about our performance and are always learning and looking for ways to improve our service.

We're a non-profit-distributing organisation, so our profit surpluses go straight back into raising standards. Through the NHBC Foundation, we invest in research and projects to drive innovation in the homebuilding industry. We run two annual award schemes: Pride in the Job and our Health and Safety prize, to celebrate those who go about delivering great homes in the right way.
