Builder’s Risk Coverage
Builder’s risk insurance is a type of insurance that a general contractor will need while on the job site doing a build or renovation. It goes toward protecting the structure, as well as the materials and equipment going on site. It can even protect from damage or loss due to weather, a fire, or vandalism.
General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance can be viewed as an all-encompassing safeguard for contractors while they are on a building site, often required by law. General liability coverage covers things such as property damage, harm, bodily injury, and advertising issues that may require you to go to court.
What’s The Difference?
While both policies cover similar things like property damage, the main difference is that general liability insurance is often required by law. Also general liability usually just covers the contractor, while the builder’s risk covers materials and the job site as a whole.
Should You Get Both?
Generally speaking, yes. It is best to get both coverage options so you are completely protected physically, financially, and legally while working on a project. A reputable insurance agent will walk you through what is advised and if you need to get both types.
