Builders Risk Insurance
Builders Risk Insurance is coverage that protects a person's or organizations insurable interest in materials, fixtures and/or equipment being used in the construction or renovation of a building or structure should those items sustain physical loss or damage from a covered cause.
Builders risk insurance, also called "course of construction," insurance is a type of property coverage for buildings under construction, as well as all of the materials and equipment used in the project. You will typically need to purchase coverage for 100 percent of the anticipated construction costs.
The coverage can be especially important if you are working with materials that are prone to damage, or if you are working in an area that is prone to certain types of severe weather. It is also important that coverage protects your investment from unforeseen risks. A ConstructionInsurance.com agent can help you with the type and amount of builders risk coverage you need.
