Builder’s Risk in Oregon is more crucial than ever. Reaching a record yearly average of 108,000 jobs last October, construction does serious business in your state. Is your business protected and prepared to compete in the market? Builder’s Risk is a policy that offers a strong safeguard against external losses, like wind, fire, rain and crime. But only if you know the ins-and-outs of the coverage and design it carefully.
1. Who’s Covered
It’s the contractor’s policy, but they’re not the only one covered. Subcontractors, owners and developers are often added as ‘named insureds’. Many contractors know this but don’t realize how strong a selling point it can be.
Transparency and collaboration in your protection plan creates an open, mutually-protected working environment. Meaning better conditions, better reviews and more clients.
Over the 5 years, Oregon construction has seen some dramatic growth – particularly in commercial building, up almost 24% since 2015. It runs 3.5% above the national average for jobs, with specialized trades projected to grow 17% by 2027.
Bigger and more diverse projects mean your company has different needs and risks.
Thankfully, Builder’s Risk is easily customizable. Some great additions to Builder’s Risk in Oregon are:
We have professionals licensed and knowledgeable in Oregon construction insurance. We’ll get you the best possible policy at the lowest price.
Many contractors worry more about the weather. But Portland has one of the highest crime rates in America, 62-in-1000 residents. Up to $1 billion a year is lost to site theft. It’s worth getting Builder’s Risk in Oregon for any expensive gear on-site or in temporary storage.
We’ll make sure your policy is airtight. With 20 years of experience, focusing exclusively on contractors, we’ll help you find a policy that gives you peace of mind.
Many contractors don’t realize Builder’s Risk can be easily extended to include a ‘Green Building’ clause, which pays for any losses to clean air, renewable energy sources and debris recycling. This is a great reputation-booster, grabbing you more clients in a market whose growth is inevitable.
