Builder's Risk... Are You at Risk?
Builder’s Risk Insurance, sometimes called Course of Construction is a form of insurance which protects a building where the building or insured area is being constructed. It can solely provide coverage for the structure or coverage for the structure and the materials on site waiting to be installed or even transported to the job site. Typically, it is an insurance coverage most owners will expect every contractor to carry.
A builder's risk insurance policy will cover damages up to the specified coverage limit, determined by the total completed value of the structure (materials and labor costs, excluding land value). Builder’s Risk insurance policies can be termed at three, six, or twelve months, depending on the length of the project.
