About Builder’s Risk Insurance
A builder’s risk policy is generally only in effect during the construction or refurbishment of a building to protect it against damage from vandalism, fire, wind damage, lightning and other similar problems. In most cases, it will not cover situations, such as earthquakes, flooding, intentional damage by the owner or acts of war. While builder’s risk insurance is often purchased by the building owner, sometimes the contractors must purchase the policy as part of the contract. Steven Graves Insurance Agency in Dallas, TX, offers these policies to give building owners peace of mind as contractors work on their buildings.
Why Do You Need Builder’s Risk Insurance?
Obtaining a builder’s risk policy is essential for those who own property on which a new building will be constructed. In most cases, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure the building is protected because it is on his or her property. While the contractor is responsible for any damages that result from his own negligence, any other damage becomes the responsibility of the property owner. During the construction phase, other types of insurance do not offer the necessary coverage. This type of coverage includes damage due to fire, high winds or other weather-related causes.
