Check out the these three noteworthy policy details to help you sell and service construction clients with confidence.
Anticipated Completion Date
When completing an application, confirm that you’ve entered the “Anticipated Completion Date” as it’s listed in the construction agreement, rather than the policy expiration date. If you can’t find it in the agreement, be sure to ask your client.
Hard and Soft Costs
The hard cost sum is based on the project’s total completed value and includes all costs associated with the design and construction of the project. Soft costs are less tangible items likely paid prior to construction, such as advertising and promotional expenses.
