Construction insurance in Covid-19 times remains an important part of your business strategy. The economy is opening up again and, more than ever, you need to be competitive. Insurance can protect your business from loss, making it sustainable and more profitable. It also signals to clients that you have the means to correct things if they go wrong. Let’s talk through the coverage that you need and the best place to get it.
What Construction Insurance Do You Need?
There is some insurance that is mandatory, such as General Liability and Workers Compensation.
- General Liability protects you from costs if you are sued for damages to a third party. With the increase in litigation in the past few years this insurance is essential.
- Workers Compensation assists with medical care costs and loss of income when an employee is injured. Construction can be dangerous work and injuries to workers are common.
These two forms of insurance are vital. Clients as well as your employees expect you to have them. They can protect your business from costs that can run into millions when things go wrong.
Builder’s Risk is property coverage. It covers you for many perils that are not included in General Liability or Workers Compensation. It applies to certain types of building projects, namely the construction of new buildings and the renovation or restructuring of existing ones. This insurance is tailored for your particular project. Examples of the loss events covered are:
- Fire- more than 6000 fires occur on construction sites every year
- Theft- the theft of tools, materials and equipment is common
- Vandalism- damage by vandalism is on the increase, especially associated with the theft of copper wiring
- Weather events- high winds and hail easily cause damage on construction sites
- Removal of debris/decontamination of a site (if caused by a covered event)- this can be very expensive
This is not a complete list. Your coverage can even cover soft costs (such as fees for architects, engineers and marketing). It is also possible to protect against loss of profits due to delays. Each policy should be customized so you get the right coverage for your project.
