Common Builders Risk Insurance Questions
What Is Builder's Risk Insurance?
A contractor’s main job function is to do construction in some shape or form (be it general contracting or a specialized line of work). It is their priority, therefore, to see that the work gets done on time, correctly and within any financial constraints.
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. The project might become delayed, and significant cost overruns could beckon. Builder’s risk insurance can step in during these scenarios, and it ensures that a contractor can adequately protect their own (and others’) interests during construction.
What Does A Builders Risk Insurance Policy Cover?
Builder’s risk coverage is a benefit that can assist both contractors and individual property owners who are undertaking their own construction projects. 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 a 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 work site, and materials that they plan to use get stolen or damage, 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.
Who Should Have Builders Risk Insurance?
Builders risk insurance isn’t just for construction companies. It can help other businesses and even individual homeowners who want to undertake construction projects. If you have any money involved in the success of the construction project, then you might need coverage.
You should have coverage in place at least by the time you start the project. However, if you sign a contract on the project, then you’ll likely need to get coverage as soon as the contract period starts.
How Much Does Builders Risk Insurance Cost?
Numerous factors can influence the cost of your builder’s risk insurance. However, your agent is more than willing to work with you to optimize your costs in line with your budgetary needs.
Keep in mind, builder’s risk coverage is just one of numerous types of insurance that a contractor might need. For example, standard property, general liability, commercial auto and workers’ compensation insurance are often essential benefits that you will have to purchase to comprehensively insure your business.
