WINT Announce Extension of the Construction Industry’s Only Water-Damage Warranty Program

Backed by HSB, the warranty provides peace of mind through a financial relief up to $250,000 to contractors and developers who implement WINT’s AI-based leak mitigation solution

 

NEW YORK — November 9, 2023 WINT Water Intelligence, , a leader in cutting-edge water management and leak-prevention solutions for construction, commercial, residential and industrial applications, is announcing the expansion of its successful water damage warranty program for the construction industry to meet growing demand for the groundbreaking initiative.

The first-of-its-kind warranty program, backed by the Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB), a Munich Re company, is transforming builder’s risk insurance by mitigating the steeply rising costs of water damage claims on construction sites. The warranty provides up to $250,000 of coverage for water damage from systems protected by WINT at the site.

“Industry leaders have seen the immediate benefit of combining WINT’s powerful technology solution with HSB’s strong reputation for high-quality performance-warranty solutions. Water damage is the top source of pain on construction projects. It accounts for 30% of the loss ratio on builder’s risk policies, driving up costs at an unsustainable rate,” said Yaron Dycian, chief product and strategy officer for WINT.”

A recent study shows construction sites protected by WINT dramatically reduce the number and impact of water damage incidents. Sites with WINT installed were found to submit 75% fewer claims and resulted in 90% less payouts relative to sites without this protection.The warranty is backed by HSB Group, a member of Munich Re’s Risk Solutions family and a leading global engineering and technical risk insurer providing reinsurance and specialty insurance, inspection services and engineering consulting.

“We’ve exhausted the capacity originally set for the program’s initial 12 months within approximately half that time, and we’ll soon be increasing it. This is a strong signal from the market of the need for this type of solution”, added Dycian.

The warranty program together with WINT advanced water management solutions will be introduced to the industry at the International Risk Management Institute (IRMI) 2023 Construction Risk Management Conference (CRC) on November 12–15 in Orlando, FL.
