Your home insurance details are specified in your own household contract but does not include building works.

Perhaps it would be advisable to ask the roofer for a copy of his insurance which should cover the signed contractural works being carried out on your roof which might come under 'structural' hence 'decennal'?

AQ is right, Check the contractor's validity and registration in case of problems at a later date.

But make sure the contractor is fully registered and insured. Find out his SIRET number and check it out on line.

I can't think why they'd be remotely interested. The only time they're interested is when you make a claim, and as said, if anything happens during or as a result of the work you're having done, it would be down to the tradesman's insurance not your household insurance.

We didn't tell them when we had any of ours done.  The artisan who is doing it will have their own insurance.
