Berkley Construction Professional, a division of Berkley Alliance Managers, a Berkley Company, introduces Faulty Workmanship Liability coverage that fits together with the ISO Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy with respect to property damage arising from faulty workmanship and addresses elements of property damage that are expressly excluded from the ISO CGL policy. Coverage is triggered by a third-party faulty workmanship claim against the policyholder; however, the claim does not have to allege negligence.
“Added to the Berkley Construction Professional Perform policy, this coverage addresses the CGL policy gap for ‘your work’ faulty workmanship claims triggered by third-parties against policy holders,” said Raymond F.H. Bustamante, executive vice president at BerkleyConstruction Professional. “The insuring agreement covers the amount contractors are legally obligated to pay and even extends to the use of defective materials or products and breach of contract or warranty issues. In other words, we now cover property damage arising out of faulty workmanship that is usually excluded in typical ISO CGL policies.”
The Faulty Workmanship Liability coverage is a separate and independent insuring agreement added to the Berkley Construction Professional Perform policy. Coverage terms include limits/sublimits of up to $2 million.
