To manage complex environmental risks, it requires expertise in understanding the unique exposures that can result from the activities of a specific industry, as well a thorough understanding of environmental compliance rules and regulations. Our environmental brokers demonstrate this expertise by staying a step ahead of industry changes and regulatory developments, and having a thorough understanding of both state and regional issues.
As a company, we have built specialized solutions for unique problems, and our environmental practice uses the expertise of our London-based colleagues at THB Group to market on behalf of our U.S. retail clients. This gives our retail partners the assurance that we are using the full resources within the AmWINS organization to solve their clients’ problems.
Over the past several years, insurance coverage for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS – pronounced EE-fiss) applicators and project owners has been difficult to obtain. Clients that are involved in EIFS in any manner – including general contractors, artisan contractors, architects and engineers, owner builders, and wrap programs – should be aware of considerations in the insurance marketplace.
EIFS is typically attached to the outside face of exterior walls with an adhesive (cementitious or acrylic based) or mechanical fasteners; adhesives are commonly used to attach EIFS to gypsum board, cement board, or concrete substrates. The supporting wall surface should be continuous (not “open framing”) and flat.
