Also known as “course of construction” insurance, this specialized coverage starts on the effective date outlined in the policy documents and stays in place until the project is finished.
Builders’ risk insurance is designed to protect against building damage, lost or damaged materials, and fixtures and equipment used in construction or renovation. The project’s estimated completed value is typically used as the limit of coverage, and protection ends when the work is completed.
This coverage should be considered as crucial protection for any contractor, property owner or other party with a financial interest in a construction project.
It’s about the services, we love giving great services, Higginbotham loves great services, and I just see that going on for decades to come. If its insured, it’s Higginbotham.
While builders’ risk may seem simple, this coverage is frequently misunderstood. Just like every construction project is different, each builder’s risk policy can also vary.
A standard builder’s risk policy typically excludes coverage for property damage caused by earthquakes, floods and wind in certain disaster-prone areas, but you can usually purchase coverage extensions to help bridge the gap.
Some other common exclusions include:
If you need additional coverage outside of your policy’s standard coverage limits or provisions, extensions and endorsements are often available to help control unique risks.
