Builder’s Risk Insurance

Builders risk insurance, also known as construction insurance, protects both the building’s owner and the construction team during building or renovation in case of theft, fire, storm or other loss and includes the materials, fixtures and/or equipment before or after installation. Normally this type of policy is purchased by the construction company but home or business owners often take out policies themselves to ensure they are adequately covered.

Tower Street Insurance has had years of experience helping businesses and individuals find the right policy when it comes to builder’s risk insurance. We have a team of professionals that can review and evaluate your property at a moment’s notice and give you a fair assessment.

Exemptions, Exclusions, and Other Things You Need to Know


Your property’s location and potential weather conditions need to be considered whenever purchasing a new policy. For example, if you have a property by the ocean or gulf, you may need an endorsement added for hurricane damage since only wind is covered in a standard policy.
