What is Builders Risk Insurance, and Who Needs It?

When a building is under construction, or any construction project is in progress, there are several risks to which the developer, contractor, and other individuals are exposed. Consequently, the general contractor or the owner is obliged to purchase a builders insurance policy to protect the interests of all the parties involved during the construction period. Some of the risks covered by the builder’s risk insurance include:

  • Theft and vandalism
  • Damage from adverse weather conditions such as wind, heavy rain, and hail
  • Fire
  • Construction delays due to inevitable factors

Builders Risk Coverage options in Colorado can include:

  • Residential ground-up construction or renovations
  • Trusts & LLCs are eligible including Corporate Named Insureds
  • Up to $1 million in liability coverage
  • Protection class 9 & 10
  • Theft of building materials
  • Coverage A with a minimum of $50,000
  • Mountain & brush property eligibility
  • Owners acting as their own General Contractor may be considered
  • Reimbursement for replacement cost or actual cash value (ACV)
  • Property coverage to include building

What is Not Covered by the Builders Risk Insurance?

When purchasing an insurance policy, you should understand that there are limits to its coverage. Some of the excluded risks are natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods. However, with the help of an experienced insurance agency like Southern Colorado Insurance Center, you can protect your project against such events by adding a severe weather endorsement to your coverage.
