Features of a Contractors Insurance Package

As a contractor, you are required to carry general liability insurance, which covers property damage and injuries that may result from the work you do, but your other insurance needs extend beyond that one policy. Common policies in an electrician’s, plumber’s, finisher’s, excavator’s or roofer’s insurance package include the following:

  • General liability and personal liability
  • Property and casualty insurance
  • Workers compensation policies
  • Surety bonds
  • Commercial vehicle/fleet insurance

After evaluating the needs of your business, your agent will explain what insurance is required, recommend additional policies or supplements to cover gaps, and provide competitive quotes from major Louisiana and national companies. Contractors insurance is a special category of our business insurance lines.

Builders Risk Insurance for Owners and General Contractors

Builders risk insurance covers buildings under construction against damage from fire, vandalism, theft and other events. The insurance can be purchased by the property owner. In some cases, a construction contract requires the general contractor to take out builders risk.

Rising Costs of Contractors Insurance

Many contractors have seen their premiums for liability and other insurance policies increase in recent years, while at the same time the criteria companies use to determine eligibility for policies has tightened. The combination of these two factors has resulted in:

  • Contractors facing continuous rate increases year after year
  • Policies that are more restrictive and provide less coverage than before
  • Cancellation or non-renewal of policies, and difficulty obtaining new coverage

If you have been dealing with any or all of these things, contact our Port Allen or Lutcher office and ask to speak with an agent. We will work with our insurance partners to find the coverage you need at an affordable rate.
