Insurance for roofers

Roofing insurance is designed to protect your business against a number of eventualities that could lead to claims against you or financial loss. Typically, it will include liability cover to protect you and your clients and can be tailored to include a number of other covers depending on your requirements.
Roofers insurance covers
Roofers public liability
Public liability cover is a fundamental part of your roofer insurance as it can safeguard you if you accidentally dropped a roof tile that landed on a parked car for example. It can also cover any injury to any third party, for instance, if a passer-by tripped over your tools or equipment.
Employers' liability for roofers
Employers' liability can also be included to protect your staff while they are at work. If you have staff, then adding this to your contractor insurance policy will fulfil your legal requirement, and safeguard your liability if your staff injure themselves at work.
Roofers personal accident cover
As a business owner, you may wish to consider personal accident cover as well. This can protect you, and your business partners, should they sustain an injury at work. For example, if you fell off a roof and broke your leg leaving you unable to work, then this cover could tide you over financially by providing a weekly benefit while you get back to full health. Having personal accident cover included in your roofers insurance can protect your income should something happen to you.
Tools insurance for roofers
Your tools and equipment are an essential part of your business, and there are varying levels of cover available to protect them. You may wish to include cover for hired in plant and temporary buildings, depending on the nature of your work and the jobs that you undertake.
Commercial legal protection for roofers
You may wish to include commercial legal protection as part of your roofing insurance, to protect against employment disputes and compensation awards, tax and VAT disputes, as well as an allowance for jury service should you, your business partners or employees be summoned.
