E&S Insurance for Homes Under Construction

Exceptional insurance for ground-up new builds of high value homes. An Excess & Surplus lines product.

Homes under Construction Overview

PURE Programs provides Excess & Surplus (E&S) insurance for individuals and families commissioning the build of a custom high value home. Ground up builds with a cost over $1 Million, that do not qualify for coverage with an admitted insurer, are eligible. 

We offer best-in-class claims and proactive risk management, along with insurance coverage that is broader than typically found in the E&S market. Our risk management team collaborates with homeowners and builders to ensure homes are well-protected during construction and after. Our coverage is more customizable than typical E&S options, meaning our customers pay only for the coverage they need, and our granular pricing rewards customers who have favorable risk characteristics or have taken steps to reduce the risk of loss to their home.

About E&S

Excess & Surplus products are typically for unique risks that standard “admitted” insurers will not write. Admitted insurers are licensed and regulated by the states they operate in. E&S products are provided by non-admitted insurance companies that aren’t subject to most of the rate and form regulations that govern admitted insurers. PURE Programs policies are underwritten by independent insurers who are rated A or better for financial strength by A.M. Best.

Highlights of PURE Programs coverage include:

Broad Policy Contract
We provide coverage for back-up of sewers and drains, debris removal, ensuing fungi or bacteria, theft of building materials, property on site as well as in transit, and scaffolding and other temporary structures.
Replacement Cost Coverage
We will pay the reconstruction cost up to the coverage limit, with no reduction for depreciation, when the home is repaired or rebuilt.
Specialized Coverage Options
We offer coverages to address the unique exposures of construction risks. For example, an optional coverage is available to offset costs such as interest on construction loans, real estate taxes and permit fees that result from a covered loss delaying the completion of the home.
Flexible Policy Provisions
Premium is earned on a pro-rata basis with no minimum earned premium. Should a project extend past the anticipated completion date or be completed prior to the end of the current term, coverage can be renewed or cancelled without the familiar minimum earned premium concerns. For larger projects, coverage can better match the actual physical risk through the use of coverage step-up provisions.
Personal Liability Coverage
We offer the option to include personal liability coverage for the homeowner, removing the need to purchase liability coverage separately.
