As a trade professional working in an industry with unique challenges, does your insurance match the risks you face?
You face liability for accidental damage to property, the cost of fixing faulty or defective workmanship and the risk of loss or damage to property from theft, fire and natural hazards.
In addition to this, builders have liability for 10 years under the Building Act and have a duty of care under the law to ensure that everything you build is fit for purpose. Mistakes, errors and omissions that result in a loss for your client (or anyone else for that matter) can be messy, and if lawyers get involved will be costly!
It makes sense to ensure you have the right cover in place, cover that is tailored to your unique needs, risks and potential claims as a construction trade professional. Builtin’s policies are tailored to the building industry, giving you cover you can’t find anywhere else.

Examples of some recent liability claims from builders and construction trades.
Insurance is a key part of every business’ risk management plan, so it’s important to make sure you regularly check that what you have in place is suitable and make any changes that are needed.
A bond is a guarantee from a third party that if a company fails to deliver on its contractual obligations the bond provider (called a guarantor or surety) will pay instead. It reduces the risks for contracting parties, because they know that if something happens they won’t be left in the lurch.
There are always two sides to every story. It’s no different when it comes to payment schedules in a building contract. Getting it right is a balancing act.
