Our custom home builders insurance provides coverage for a broad range of events:
- Defence and legal costs
- Medical expenses
- Liability for property damage and bodily injury
- Property coverage for building materials, tools, equipment, homes under construction etc.
What Does Custom Home Builders Insurance Cover?
Commercial General Liability Insurance – A CGL policy covers your construction operations for lawsuits, medical expenses, property damage and bodily injury liability, and compensatory and punitive damages.
Wrap Up Liability Insurance – Provides liability insurance during the construction process and can be extended to cover all participating parties (i.e. subcontractors, consultants, engineers etc.) throughout the entire constructions project.
Builders Risk aka Course of Construction Insurance – Provides additional coverage for renovations and repairs that most commercial policies exclude because the costs are above a certain threshold and are not fully disclosed beforehand.

Coverage includes medical costs, legal defence costs, third-party property damage liability, and loss of income. It can also include benefits for funeral expenses, disability income, and death.
Property Insurance – Protects your supplies, equipment, tools, materials, and more from losses caused by theft and/or other perils like fire, water damage etc.
Pollution Liability Insurance – Covers cleanup and litigation costs from hazardous materials that spill, cause bodily harm, or damage to property.
