Builder's risk insurance is a special type of property insurance protects a builder or owner against damage that occurs to new or existing buildings that are under construction.
Commercial general liability typically provides coverage in case an injury or damage takes place on a business' property or while a business is operating. For instance, a customer could slip on the floor of your property, or an employee working at someone's home can slip and cause damage.
Tools and equipment insurance is a type of inland marin insurance that provides coverage if essential and expensive tools get destroyed or stolen. You can add this as a supplement to your insurance policy to typically cover heavy and rare equipment that can be difficult to replace and find.
One of the most important types of coverage for a commercial construction business is builder’s risk insurance. Sometimes referred to as “course of construction” coverage and often overlapping with inland marine coverage, builder’s risk grants financial security in the event of damage to a property under construction. It can also cover your business against losses of or damage to materials being used during construction. What exact situations your builder’s risk policy covers may depend on your selected carrier.
Other coverages that make up a commercial construction insurance plan may include general commercial liability, worker’s compensation, commercial auto insurance, equipment breakdown insurance, professional liability, and possibly more.
