Each year, buildings under construction and renovation suffer millions of dollars in water damage, as well as significant delays, because of undetected water pipe failures. These failures can go undetected for hours or even days if construction personnel are not on site. As part of the Hanover i-on Sensors for Builder's Risk program, Hanover Risk Solutions has identified several companies that offer water detection sensors to help reduce the likelihood of a small leak becoming a multi-million dollar loss. Builder's risk customers of The Hanover are encouraged to contact the following companies to explore how they can help protect builder's risk projects from water damage losses. Additionally, several of these providers offer discounts to Hanover policyholders.
