What is Builder's Risk Insurance?  

Contractors, no matter what their specialties, do construction in some way, shape or form. Clients expect them to provide quality service when doing their jobs, and to provide a safe product in the end. They also expect contractors to complete their work on time, within the budget and with minimal hassle. Still, if unexpected problems arise in any part of your operations, then you run the risk of not being able to deliver on your promises. 

Builder’s risk insurance policy can help you avoid the costly ramifications of cost overruns, unexpected property damage or similar delays in your work. With it, you can ensure that neither your own nor the client’s priorities are not met simply because a challenge arose that you didn’t expect. 

There are several sub-specifications of coverage available to address the needs of different parties.  

  • New construction insurance applies to new construction projects and can apply from the moment you start your work on the property. It will apply until your complete the project.  
  • Remodeling insurance covers damage occurring to a property that is undergoing renovation. So, if you are revamping your master suite, coverage can assist you during the process.   
  • Installation insurance covers property before it gets installed into a permanent place. For example, if a contractor stores material at a worksite, and materials that they plan to use get stolen or damaged, then this coverage will pay for your recovery costs.  

Additionally, some policies also offer premises liability insurance. This coverage will pay for bodily injuries or property damage that the policyholder might negligently cause to third parties, such as visitors to the construction site. However, other liability coverage within a contractor’s greater commercial insurance portfolio might also provide this coverage.  

Builders risk insurance isn’t just for construction companies. It can help other businesses and even individual homeowners who want to undertake construction projects on their own. You should have coverage in place at least by the time you start the project.
