Insurance Marketplace Adds to Uncertainty for Contractors

Amid the stubborn coronavirus pandemic, institutional capital and developer investment has paused, forcing contractors to take a wait-and-see approach for their direction in 2021 and beyond.

As property values have risen over the years, so have insurers’ catastrophe losses. To limit their own risks, carriers are more often requiring property owners to retain a greater share of the exposure through percentage deductibles based on the overall value of the property at risk, rather than flat deductibles set at a specific monetary value.
