New! Individual Builder’s Risk

Construction insurance, also known as builder’s risk coverage, is a specialized insurance designed to cover property during construction, including renovations or repairs. Typically, this coverage is purchased by either the property owner or the contractor and protects both property owners and contractors from additional construction work risks. A standard property policy does not cover construction-specific risks, so no matter who purchases the coverage, anyone with property involved in the project, including tools or materials, should be named in the policy.

For clients who choose to build with Castle, a builders’ risk insurance policy helps protect your construction project against claims during the build and all associated property loss or damage.

Features include:

  • A unique offering designed for people building their own new home or cottage
  • While under construction, coverage is tailored to meet the needs of an insured building a home or cottage
  • Seamless transition from a dwelling under construction with limited coverage to a finished home or cottage with full coverage
  • Competitive premiums based on fire protection level
  • Insured can act as the General Contractor for an additional premium
  • A wide range of premium discounts are available to be applied to the policy premium

Insure Your Mortgage with Term Life Insurance

Most banks and lending institutions offer Mortgage Protection Insurance or Creditor Insurance. Cowan Financial Solutions offers Term Life Insurance. If you are a client who chooses to build with Castle Building Centres and have an existing or new mortgage with a financial institution, consider protecting your mortgage with Term Life Insurance, which features:

  • Your choice of beneficiaries
  • The total insured amount paid directly to your beneficiaries upon the insured’s death
  • Amount can be increased to cover other obligations (i.e. funeral expenses, loss of income, additional debt, or support for loved ones)
  • The flexibility of a fixed premium for a time frame of your choosing
  • A constant coverage amount which may be reduced if you choose
  • Policy ownership; changing financial institutions does not impact your insurance
  • In most cases, cheaper rates, depending on age and health
  • A policy that remains intact as long as you wish
  • Term insurance that you can convert to more permanent insurance, which could be beneficial depending on your health at the time of renewal
