  • Engineers and other professionals

What’s covered by most builders risk policies

  • Damage from theft, vandalism, fire, lightning, explosions, wind damage, hurricanes and other
    perils on an all-risk basis
  • Sewer backups
  • Materials and equipment in transit to the job site
  • Both residential and commercial projects

Most policies will also give you the option to extend your policy if the project is delayed.

Upgrade your protection options

You can purchase endorsements to provide further protection for the following:

  • Flood and earthquake damage
  • Soft costs from a covered loss, such as advertising and promotional expenses, interest on
    construction loans, real estate and property tax assessments, fees and legal expenses, commissions
    and insurance premiums
  • Loss of business or rental income due to a delay in your project
  • Automatic increases in your policy limits to accommodate change orders
  • Adjacent property coverage for existing buildings next to your project
  • Additional coverage for scaffolding and construction forms, temporary structures, debris removal
