TEXAS/FLORIDA—Contractors insurance is necessary to help protect your business from unexpected events that may affect your finances. Having the right coverage allows you to retain control of your finances no matter what obstacles you find yourself facing especially in case of lawsuits, on-the-job injuries, damage to your equipment and more. You may be required, either by law or the company that hired you, to have this coverage.
As a general contractor hired for a construction site or home remodeling project, you are assuming responsibility for the build, and just about everything else that occurs on the job site. With that amount of responsibility you can expect an equally enormous liability. Business insurance is important to construction and contracting companies because equipment damage, and property damage happen so often on the job sites.
It is also important to keep your employees protected from a wide range of risks, including accidents, property damage, or theft.
The following are different types of coverages that you might want to consider or ask your agent for more information to keep your business well protected under most circumstances.
TYPES OF COVERAGES
General Liability— covers business liability for third-party bodily injury, property damage and more.
Umbrella Insurance — covers costs that exceed the limit of another policy, subject to its own limit.
Builder’s Risk— covers damage or loss to buildings during construction or renovation as a result of fire, weather events, vandalism or other hazards.
