The CG 22 94 is one of the most complicated endorsements in contractors liability insurance. To understand this endorsement, you must first understand the standard “Your Work” exclusion in the ISO CG 00 01 policy. A standard general liability policy states that damage resulting from your work is covered, but damage to your work is excluded. For example, a general contractor builds a fence. The damage to the fountain is covered, but the cost to rebuild the fence is not.
The exclusion reads as follows:
As you can see, the exception to the exclusion is work performed on your behalf by a subcontractor. With this exception, work completed by a subcontractor is not considered “your work”. Consequently, if the same fence was built by the insured’s subcontractor, there may be coverage under the general contractor’s policy for both the fountain and the fence.
The CG 22 94 removes the exception to the exclusion.
So, as a result, if the general contractor’s policy has a CG 22 94 endorsement, he would have no coverage for the damage to either the fountain or the fence.
