What is builders risk insurance?

Builders risk insurance can be complex and easily misunderstood, as coverage and policies vary from one insurance company to the next. But in a nutshell, builders risk insurance is property protection for your construction project, from start to finish.

Whether you’re completing a home construction, renovation, or installation, a builders risk policy protects the project structure, as well as any materials, supplies and equipment used in the course of construction from various types of damage or loss. A builders risk policy can be purchased by the contractor, property owner, or even a lender, and may also cover the architect or engineer involved. 

Once your project is complete, your builders risk insurance policy ends, and you’ll want to consider a homeowners insurance policy (if you don’t already have one) to continue protecting your investment.

How builders risk insurance protects your project

While your home insurance covers your existing home, as soon as you make renovations to it, or start a new construction, that coverage has gaps. Keep your project protected and investment secured with a customized builders risk insurance policy.

Protection from natural disasters

Fire, wind, snow, ice, hurricanes, tornadoes, and water - we’ve seen it all in Massachusetts. And it all can cause some serious damage. But the right builders risk insurance can protect you from whatever Mother Nature throws your way.

Protection before work begins

Materials and supplies have been delivered. Tools and equipment are onsite waiting for installation. The right builders risk insurance policy will reimburse you for damages even before work begins.

Coverage for only as long as you need

With builders risk insurance, your coverage begins before you break ground, and ends once your property is sold or occupied. Not a day longer. You never pay for more insurance than you need.

Compliance with your loan lender

Construction projects can be a significant investment. If you’ve got a lender backing your project, they’ll want to be sure you have coverage for their financial interest.
