Builder’s Risk Insurance
Builder’s risk insurance is specially designed to protect buildings that are under construction from unforeseen circumstances. It automatically includes coverage for things like fire, hail, theft, and vandalism. This type of policy also has the potential to cover things like lost sales and rental income, but you can only get the coverage you need by customizing a policy that’s right for you.

What is Builder’s Risk Insurance?
Builder's Risk Insurance covers events that can't be planned for, like fire, wind, theft, and vandalism. It may or may not include things like earthquakes, flood, or wind. However, these possibilities can be included in a policy if requested.
Who needs Builder's Risk Insurance?
Another insurance policy may cover the building, which may mean Builder’s Risk Insurance isn’t necessary. However, if it's a new build and no existing insurance policy exists, or if it will be used immediately after it is built, as is the case with rental spaces, a Builder's Risk Policy may be necessary.
How does Builder’s Risk Insurance work?
It should first be determined whether a Builder’s Risk Policy is necessary. If it is, you can work with a DJM specialist to create a policy that covers your project for events that could transpire during the course of construction. If a covered event does transpire, you can file a claim and be reimbursed for damages.
What is the difference between Builder’s Risk Insurance and Course of Construction Insurance?
There is no difference between Builder’s Risk Insurance and Course of Construction Insurance. These two terms are used interchangeably.
Who should be named as the insured on a Builder’s Risk policy?
The policy will most likely include the owner of the building company, the general contractor, and subcontractors who may be affected to ensure every eventuality is covered.
