aka: Builder’s Risk Insurance Policy, Contractors Risk Insurance Policy, or Construction Insurance Policy.
Builders Risk Insurance Coverage
A building under construction requires a special form which covers the unique loss exposures of buildings under construction, a Builders Risk Policy.
Until it is complete, it is not a building or a House, therefore it can not be covered under a standard Building Insurance Policy or a Home Insurance Policy, it needs to be insured under a Builders Risk Insurance Policy.
In fact most Building Insurance or Home Insurance Policies will EXCLUDE structures under the course of construction and either cancel insurance coverage or deny a claim if it not insured under a Builders Risk Policy.
Typically, Coverage increases automatically as the construction progresses, and is terminated upon completion. Builder’s Risk Insurance should be replaced with permanent insurance once the building is ready for occupancy.
