Builder’s Risk Insurance

Find out everything you need to know about coverage for your building project. Course of Construction insurance does not replace your contractors or general liability insurance.

Why? Because this coverage does not provide coverage against third-party claims. So, say you are sued for damages to someone else’s property. This is a job for liability insurance, not Builder’s Risk.

In addition, there is no protection for employee injuries. Your Workers Compensation is coverage for worker injury, disability or fatality.

So, what is this insurance for?

  1. Protect the building that you are constructing, remodelling or renovating.
  2. Get coverage for vandalism.
  3. Protect tools or building materials from theft or damage.

But this is not all there is to it. Find out more. Read the Builder’s Risk blog.
