What is Contractors Insurance?

Contractors insurance is a very broad term considering all the specialty fields that exist in the industry. Coverage for general contractors may be very different from what is required for a roofing specialist, an electrician, or even a plumber. It is important that you have coverage which matches not just your industry’s particular requirements but also your individual business. Regardless of which trade you focus on there a few components which are standard for any contractor’s insurance policy.

Commercial Property Insurance

This protects your businesses buildings, personal property, equipment and tools from direct physical loss.

Commercial General Liability Insurance

This component of the contractor’s insurance policy is to help protect against costly claims or potential legal action should anyone allege you caused bodily injury or property damage as a result of your actions.

Business Vehicle & Fleet Auto Insurance

This is designed to provide coverage for your business vehicles. Whether you have one commercially used vehicle or an entire fleet.

Ontario Contractors Insurance Options

The following coverage may be unique to certain contractors or operations and can be added as an option to your policy.

Installation Floater

This coverage may not be required for every situation. However, plumbers, electricians or HVAC companies may use this coverage as it protects any property you own or are responsible for while in transit or at a job site.

Tool Floater

Additional coverage designed to cover any equipment or tools while at a job site.

Builders Risk Insurance

This coverage is typically required before undertaking any contracting operations. It is designed to provide coverage for a project that is damaged before completion. This coverage is especially important for contractors working on buildings and construction projects.

Pollution Insurance

Environmental Liability insurance protection in case your operation pollutes the environment.

Contractors Surety Bonds

Larger contractors often require a surety to bid on large contracts. This guarantees the Contractor will complete the project in accordance with the contract documents.

Performance bonds

Coverage if the job is only partially finished and you are unable to complete it. The performance bond takes care of the rest.

If you want further details on any of the coverage options listed above, be sure to contact an Ontario contractor insurance broker. They can sit down with you and discuss your circumstances and review what coverage options may be of interest to you.
