Builder’s Risk

Anyone who embarks on a construction project feels the excitement of building something brand new. Whether you’re a homeowner building your custom dream home, doing major renovations, or you’re a contractor – you’ll need builder’s risk insurance. Since a homeowner’s or commercial property insurance policy doesn’t provide coverage while a property is under construction, you want to make sure that your project is protected. More often known as course of construction insurance, this coverage is a crucial part of any project that provides protection while the structure is being built.

As a commercial property manager, there are several common insurance claims that you may encounter.

Theft

The construction site was broken into and the scaffolding was stolen and had to be replaced.

Weather

A windstorm caused damage to the building under construction and requires cleanup, new materials and rework.

Soft costs

Damage at the construction site that requires rework often means that new layouts need to be created or additional legal fees charged.
