DALLAS, Jan 30, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Builder Agent Network, managing general agency for Builders Insurance Group's Texas products, has announced a new product for the home building and contractor markets. The umbrella/excess liability policy was released earlier this month providing excess liability at premium and coverage options customized for each type of risk.
