Builders Risk Insurance is a policy is designed to provide coverage for buildings while under construction. It covers the contractor’s interest in materials at the job site before they are installed, materials in transit intended for the job, and the value of the property being constructed until it is completed and accepted by the owner. The policy may be written to cover the whole structure for new construction or the cost of remodeling and renovation projects. It can also be used to cover specific projects, such as a new room addition, a deck, or a remodeled bathroom.
Builders risk insurance usually is in the name of the contractor or the property developer; but it could also be in the name of the property owner if he is responsible for insuring it while the property is under construction. Both commercial and residential construction sites might be covered under a builders risk insurance policy.Get A Quote
