Types of Construction Insurance

A large construction site is a complicated affair requiring many crews of workers with their own specialized skill sets and tools.  Because of that, a single project may require many different types of insurance.

  • Liability Insurance – Because of the dangers inherent in the construction industry, liability is probably a contractor’s most important insurance purchase.  It protects both the contractor and the building owner against financial loss due to on-the-job injuries.
  • Builder’s Risk Insurance – This insurance covers a building while it is being constructed.  Whether the damage is done by a careless worker or a natural disaster, it indemnifies the materials, fixtures, and equipment at a worksite.
  • Performance Bond – Whether bankruptcy, inferior materials, or faulty workmanship is to blame, a performance bond will compensate the property owner if the contractor does not finish the job properly.
  • Hold Harmless Agreement – This is a policy provided by a subcontractor to ensure that his work will be up to par.
  • Bid Bond Surety – This is proof to the owner that the contractor will finish the job up to the standard laid out in the contract at the price he bid.
