Roofing General Liability insurance Made Easy

What is Roofers contractors Insurance?

Roofers’ insurance is a form of contractor’s liability insurance that covers roofing contractors against the financial costs made by damages done to their client and/or any passers-by. Roofers understand the danger of the job and usually will do anything within their power to protect those on the ground below from falling equipment or debris.

But accidents happen, and that is part of the reason why roofers’ insurance exists. Here are some of the types of damage that are covered under roofers’ insurance and some examples of when you might encounter these types of damages:

  • Injuries to the Body
    Example: A piece of unsecured equipment falls off the roof and hits a client or third party in the head, causing a concussion or a broken shoulder.
  • Damages to the Property
    Example: Piles of roofing debris are left on the lawn of a client for too long, causing the grass underneath it to die.
  • Personal Injury
    Example: You failed to supervise your employees one day and a part of the roof is aesthetically unpleasant as a result. This results in a loss of business reputation for your client, and they sue you.
  • Advertising Injury

    Example: You advertise the differences between your company and another roofing company that you specifically mentioned. This results in loss of business on their end and they sue in response.

  • Medical Payments

    Example: A runner on the sidewalk incurs a broken ankle after tripping on a piece of roofing debris from your project.

It is important to note that roofers’ insurance only covers damages to third parties. To cover the medical bills and bodily damage to one of your employees, you will need worker’s compensation.

Roofing Contractors Insurance

Specialized commodities often provide better value – they either encapsulate the true meaning of something or provide a service that is specifically tailored to someone or something. In the insurance business, specialized general liability insurance is usually the best option to take when it comes to covering your business, your assets, and yourself Roofers contractors Insurance.

Specialized insurance is one of the things that Contractors Liability does best in our business, and that is why we urge roofers to consider the more specialized roofer’s insurance when it comes to getting a general contractor’s insurance plan.
Liability insurance like these are required for construction in most states, and many customers will not let you start on a project without it.

So why go for the generic option, which may not account for the coverage you need, when you can get a policy that is specifically designed to protect you? Roofers’ insurance is the safest and most accurate coverage for roofing contractors, and Contractors Liability can help you find a plan that fits with your needs.

Roofers Insurance Cost

It is a little easier to calculate the average payment of a roofers’ insurance policy because it is so specialized. However, Contractors Liability recommends that any general costs presented in a quote ought to be met with scrutiny, as personal plans will always vary. We want you to feel as though your liability insurance requirements are being met, so contact us today for a free quote that takes any specializations you need, as well as more information about your personalized insurance plan.

There are common factors that insurance companies use to determine roofers insurance costs. Factors that go into this include:

Your company’s accident history

 If you’re a company with a clean accident record, then you are less likely to have a high insurance rate than some of your competitors. This, however, does not account for the age of your business, which also plays a role in determining insurance rates. (For example, A company may have no recorded accidents, but if the company is relatively new, a rate may be higher than an older company with the same record.)

The average age and legal background of your employees

 Employees who do not pass generic background checks, as well as many younger employees, could make your liability insurance higher. A good way to save money if you do hire any of these demographics is to provide consistent and documented training.

How old your company is?

 If a company has an established history of excellence, an insurance company will see this as a form of reliability, thus encouraging their capacity to offer a lower rate due to lower risk.

Where your company is located

 Believe it or not, crime can be considered part of a liability package. There is a higher likelihood of property damage due to crime, therefore it is part of the responsibility of the owners to make sure they are covering their assets and reputation.
