icon-builders-risk.png Builders Risk Insurance for Farmers Agents

Custom homebuilders, general contractors and even property owners often find themselves searching for insurance coverage to protect personal or business projects under construction. Builders risk insurance protects a person's or organization's insurable interest in materials, fixtures and/or equipment being used in the construction or renovation of a building or structure should those items sustain physical loss or damage from a covered cause; it is often required to comply with government regulations or as a condition to meeting banking or other contractual arrangements. While a builders risk policy itself is relatively simple to obtain, ensuring the proper coverage, limits and policy type are in place requires a core understanding of the industry and the associated risks which occur during the course of construction.

With comprehensive insurance coverage and flexible policy options, our Builders Risk Plan is designed to meet the needs of residential and commercial customers for any project type and size ranging from turnkey and custom build to order to high volume construction, and it can be tailored for even the largest construction project.
