Contract works cover for construction professionals

Contract works cover for your commercial risks


Contract works cover offers many protections. For example, you might be working on the development or construction of a building which suffers damage midway through the job – perhaps through fire or adverse weather. By having suitable contract works cover in place you can ensure that you receive payment for the cost of redoing work that you have previously completed.


In fact, contracts work cover should be considered as essential for working with clients who seek to make construction contractors responsible for finishing work that has been left only partly completed as a result of fire, wind or other adverse circumstances.


Although it is worth bearing in mind that contract works cover won’t provide protection against all eventualities, it can ensure protection from floods, fires, storms, heavy winds, theft and vandalism.


Calculating cost


Contract works cover should be made to measure in the sense that it should provide protection up to the value of your most extensive and most expensive project – as such you need to be able to calculate how much it would cost to redo damaged work associated with the project to ensure your existing cover is sufficient.
