What type of coverage do Roofers need?

Roofers and roofing companies have dangerous professions. Because of this risk, standard markets sometimes will not work and you must find  coverage with a specialty carrier. There are a number of types of coverages roofing contractors should consider carrying:

  • General Liability: Covers property damage and bodily injury from third party claimants (property owners). 
  • Worker's Compensation: Protects roofing employees if they become sick or injured in an accident on the job. This will pay for medical costs and lost wages.
  • Professional liability: Covers roofing contractors in the event a third party takes legal action against them, alleging they provided advice or recommendations that resulted in a loss. 
  • Product liability insurance: Protects roofer's from claims due to faulty materials used on a job.
  • Commercial Auto: Covers damage and liability on the roofing company's work related vehicles.
