What is Artisan Contractor’s Insurance?
An artisan in the contracting business is typically anyone who can provide a specified type of service that markedly improves a home or business. This includes:
Of course, there are many more examples than just those in this list. These contractors provide services that require specialized liability needs, for each trade has its own potential for accidents and risk factors. Artisan contractors’ insurance cover injuries to the body, damages to the client or a third-party property, personal injury or injury made against the reputation of a third party, advertising injury or any sort of action taken against a competing company, and medical payments.
In addition to the worries associated with general contractor liability, artisan contractors must also consider their location within a “pain state,” or a state that has higher after-completion claims. These states include Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Washington, New York, California, Nevada, Louisiana, Oregon, and Texas. While artisan contractors everywhere fight for legislation that will help them defend their work against potential harmful suits, be assured that most insurance companies, like Contractors Liability, will also have your back in instances like this
Artisan Contractor’s Insurance Cost
Artisan contractor’s insurance is a little more generic than some of the other specified forms of insurance. This is often why independent contractors go for it. The artisan’s status as a business provider is not as expansive as a business that has many employees, thus it is necessary to provide the right type of coverage for a small or one-person business. That aside, there are still factors that insurance companies consider when setting up insurance policies for their artisan contractors.
- Whether or not you work in a “pain state”
Because of pain states’ muddy regulations and their reputation for drawing out long work lawsuits that extend past the date of typical coverage, insurance companies may charge you more for the additional coverage associated with a pain state.
- How long you have been in business
We’d like to trust every artisan contractor that comes through our office. However, insurance agencies often factor experience into your rate. It’s nothing personal, only an assessment of the risk coming from the unknown. Artisan contractors new to the trade can expect rate decreases as they establish a reputation.
- Your accident history
Like car insurance policies, artisan contractor insurance policies are created with the notion that accidents can and will happen. You can expect your rates to fluctuate throughout time based on the number of severity of accidents that occur. If you must take out a claim in the first few years of coverage, don’t sweat it. A single claim is no guarantee that your business is associated with higher risk.
- Your Credit History
For artisan contractors, credit history can play a major role in getting the policy limit that you request. If your score is low when applying, ask your insurance provider for ways that you might be able to save on your policy there crthere areo credit.
Ithere’s one mantra insurers and the insured should hold in the back of their mind, it’s this: Expect change. Change is what drives the insurance industry, and it’s what you need to consider if you want your coverage to remain consistent. Your rate will change, for better or for worse, over time. So be prepared.

What are some types of artisan contractor’s insurance?
There are different types of insurance that cover different contracting needs. Some of the major ones include artisan contractor’s insurance, commercial auto insurance, workers compensation for artisan contractors with more than one employee, and liability insurance that covers third parties in the event of an accident. However, there are other types of insurance that might be right for your specific company as well. Discuss with your insurance agency further about what types of artisan contractor’s insurance might be right for your small business.
Does Artisan Contractor’s insurance cover my employees?
Artisan contractor’s insurance can cover employees if the policy includes worker’s compensation. Liability coverage generally only covers third parties, which do not include your employees. In some states, it is against the law to not provide worker’s compensation to your employees. If you have hired extra help for your business, it’s important to make sure that worker’s compensation is included in your policy.
Am I considered an Artisan Contractor?
Artisan contractors are also known as “casual contractors”. These types of workers can be contracted on a full or part-time basis, and provide a skilled contracting trade for profit. If you’re unsure whether your business can be considered as an artisan contractor, be sure to ask your insurance agent about it.
