The purpose of insurance is to pass the risk of financial loss onto a third-party, and this is exactly what Builder’s Risk does. So what are the top benefits of Builder’s Risk Insurance?

Also known as course of construction coverage, this kind of insurance is project-specific. In other words, a General Contractor or a Property Owner will take out a different policy for each project. Why? Unlike Liability insurance which protects against financial loss as a result of a third-party claim, Builder’s Risk protects the insured’s investment.
