Why do you need construction & contractors insurance?
As a business in this industry, your insurance needs vary depending on the type of projects you undertake. You may be exposed to risks such as fire, theft, crime, and equipment breakdown. A tailored, reliable coverage plan can help you stay competitive and protect your business.
Builder’s RiskAs a construction project unfolds, your risks evolve. This coverage can protect you in common incidents such as fire or theft that can damage the build and result in a loss.
Wrap Up LiabilityThis is a common type of coverage for large construction contracts that can support the different parties involved in the project, if a lawsuit is brought against them.
Contractors Error & OmissionsThis type of coverage can protect you in the event of a cost relating to an error, omission, or negligence that led to unsatisfactory results. For example, faulty wiring in an electrical system.
Contractors Equipment FloaterThis coverage can provide an extension that will pay to replace a piece of damaged equipment. For example, if your new excavator engine bay was damaged from a fire, even after you tried to extinguish the flames.
Installation FloaterIf a problem comes up before you can begin work, an installation floater extension can cover labour and materials involved in installation, including property temporarily stored at another location.
Non-Owned AutomobileIf an employee drives their own car to pick up tools for a job and is involved in an accident, this coverage can help cover the cost of damage or expenses resulting from an injury to another driver.
Contractor’s Pollution Liability InsuranceThis type of coverage can help protect your business against third-party claims for bodily injury, property damage, or environmental damage resulting from pollution conditions caused by your business.
