Does your construction insurance give you all the coverage you need? If it doesn’t include Builder’s Risk you may find you don’t have the insurance you need when something unexpected happens. This is not mandatory insurance and so some role players in the construction industry are not fully aware of how it can help their business.
Let’s look at what Builder’s Risk is and why you should add it to your insurance portfolio.
Builder’s Risk is property coverage and is applicable to certain types of construction projects. This includes new buildings as well as the restructure, renovation or remodeling of existing buildings.
Those with an investment in a project of this type can purchase a Builder’s Risk policy. This could be a developer, contractor, homeowner, lender, or even a professional such as an architect.
Builder’s Risk gives coverage for a number of items. Every business is unique, and so is each project. A policy is customizable for the individual business. Some of things that can be included in a Builder’s Risk policy are:
A practical way to assess the construction insurance coverage you need is to take an inventory of your materials, tools and equipment. This will give you a sense of what you need.
As important is to speak to an industry expert that can guide you in what you should include. At Builder’s Risk Insurance our agents have many years of experience and knowledge of the industry and they can assist you.
