Information you’ll need
- How many storeys your home has
- If it’s built on flat or sloping land
- What it’s made of—including flooring, walls and roof materials
- Total floor area
It’s important to describe your home accurately. It’s a good idea to physically measure parts of your home if you’re not sure.
What is the Cordell Calculator?
The Cordell Calculator is an independent tool that helps you estimate how much it would cost to rebuild your home, based on typical rebuild costs for houses with similar materials and features.
Using the Cordell Calculator, you can get an estimate of how much it might cost to rebuild your home, and set your Sum Insured. Otherwise, you can contact a registered valuer, quantity surveyor or other approved building practitioner to get your rebuild costs professionally estimated. For Vero customers, if you’ve calculated and set your Sum Insured using the Cordell Calculator with correct inputs, or another method that we accept, you could also qualify for SumExtra — find out how to qualify.
