Golden Insurance Co. RRG has extended its primary commercial general liability coverage for builders, general contractors and artisans to $1 million/$1 million beginning in Jan. 2007.

Coverage is offered on a claims-made basis, and most builder trade classes will be considered. Extended tail coverage of two or three years may be purchased at additional premium.

Additional credit and discounted rates are given when bundled with the structural warranty coverage through StrucSure Home Warranty. Credit is also given for clean loss history.

Primary policy exclusions include: prior acts exclusion; course of roofing; mold/fungus; subsidence/earth movement; nuclear exclusion; wrap up exclusion; and designated work exclusion.
