Why you need contractors insurance

With construction being a highly-regulated industry, it is a best practice to get insured by an insurance agency that specializes in insuring contractors. There are different rules that apply to each contractor and those rules differ based on the business entity.

For example, a sole proprietor will have different rules than an LLC, and an LLC will have different rules than a corporation. For this reason, it is very important that you work with an agent experienced with contractors insurance to make sure they have you insured correctly.

On top of that, contractors work in a field where risk is high. The liability and property risks involved in construction require many specialized insurance coverages. Whether it is a builder’s risk policy or installation coverage, every construction job may present different coverage needs.

In the event an accident happens, you're able to provide financial compensation to those affected through your insurance coverage. With contractors insurance, you're able to continue your business without a financial burden you can't recover from.

Are subcontractors covered under my contactors insurance

Are subcontractors covered under my contractors insurance?

If the subcontractor has no insurance, your contractors insurance will have to cover the subcontractors work. If the subcontractor has insurance, a certificate of insurance needs to be kept to help you avoid having to cover the subcontractors work. You should also check with your agent to make sure you understand how subcontractors will be treated on your policy.
