Demolition Insurance


How specialized is Demolition Insurance Coverage?

  One of our specialty insurance concentrations is providing demolition insurance for contractors. The Demolition industry is one that requires an almost obsessive attention to detail. We work with our clients who are demolition contractors to discuss and assess the various risks they face in their operations. As part of our demolition insurance risk assessment, we provide preliminary suggestions on contractual obligations which our clients can then review and finalize with their attorneys.

  Once we have completed a risk management assessment, we work together with our clients to implement sound strategies to address their specific risk profile in order to provide the optimal demolition insurance coverage for their needs. Since the demolition industry is largely regulated by OSHA and related laws, this assistance is critical. Demolition work is risky enough; let the experts at Cravens Warren work with you to eliminate any concerns of adequate protection regarding your demolition insurance requirements.

What Coverages Demolition Insurance Typically Provide?

  Demolition Insurance covers mainly liability exposures.  However, demolition work is inherently seething with liability transfer to the contractor.  Therefore, it is important to have the right liability coverage in place.  Some of the endorsements available in liability insurance for contractors should always be included. 

Demolition insurance endorsements would often include: 

  • Additional Insured Coverage
  • Waiver of Subrogation Coverage
  • Primary & Non Contributory Wording Compliance
  • Completed Operations Coverage for the Additional Insured
  • No restrictions on height of project
  • XC&U Coverage
  • Pollution Liability
  • No Subcontractors Limitations
  • & Blanket Contractual Liability coverage

It is also important to ensure the contracts demolition contractors have in place are aligned with the demolition contractors insurance coverage afforded by the policies.  Call Cravens Warren today to learn more about how we can help you with your risk management needs.
