What is roofers’ insurance?

Roofers’ insurance allows you to cover your business for the aspects that you care about most. You can get your business covered for public liability, professional indemnity, employers’ liability and contractors all risk insurance, all in one place.

Being a roofer is a distinctive trade and it comes with its own unique risks – whether you are operating as a single-handed sole trader or the employer of your own team of roofers. It is the kind of job that can be extremely risky and very costly if you don’t have the right kind of insurance.

You’ll want cover that suits the kind of work you do, in case something does go wrong causing your business a financial loss.

We’re here to help you choose the type of insurance you want for your business needs.

What does roofers’ insurance include?

As a business owner, it is your duty to make sure that in the course of carrying out your work your actions are not responsible for causing an injury or property damage to a third party. If you are held liable for the injury or damage you can be sued for compensation, this is why public liability insurance typically provides at least £1 million of cover.

Professional indemnity insurance helps cover you if your customer brings a claim against your business due to a service you provided or recommended that caused a financial loss. Employers' liability insurance is a legal requirement if you have any employees. This covers them for injury or illness they have suffered because of their work with you.

Contractors all risk insurance is a policy that provides comprehensive cover for the contract works, tools, plant and equipment, temporary buildings and architect drawings.

We aim to be able to offer all the insurance you need to run your business, in one easy to use place. 

Do I need roofers’ insurance?

Employees’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for nearly all businesses.  Failure to have this cover can result in you incurring a substantial daily fine so it is very important to protect yourself and your business. If you have any employees, you need to obtain it.

We can help you find a policy with the liability cover amount that suits your business needs.

However carefully you are working, and however many years of experience you have, accidents may still happen. The heights at which you are working and the nature of the materials you are likely to be working with can make your trade potentially dangerous.

Clay tiles, for example, might cause significant injuries and damage over a wide area if they break, slip, or fall from any height. As the roofer, you may be held responsible for any injury or damage caused to your customers or other third parties.
