The answer may be best given by considering how a standard construction property is built;

      • if it has stone or brick walls, with a roof using either tiles or slates – it is generally considered to be standard construction;
      • in any other case, the building is likely to be considered non standard construction.
    • Timber frames
    • Steel frames
    • Concrete
    • Corrugated iron
    • Plastic
    • Glass
    • Fibreglass
    • Asbestos
    • Flint
    • Asphalt
    • Shingle
    • Eco-friendly materials including green roofs
    • Cob, and wattle and daub
    • Prefab/HUF Haus

It all depends on the individual property. For instance, empty house insurance and steel frame insurance are two very different situations to cover, and so the ease with which you can find insurance for non-standard constructions will vary.
