Are you looking for a contractor who can tackle your roofing project? You must first do your due diligence before making a choice. In addition to being licensed, a roofing contractor should also be fully insured. Any roofing project, no matter the size, has varying degrees of risk. Thus, taking steps to protect both yourself and your home is imperative.
Here’s a look at three reasons why working with an insured roofing contractor is beneficial:
1. Roofer accident risks. Roofing is an inherently dangerous job. The professionals go up and down ladders, handle tools and equipment, and work from an elevated height. Thus, their line of work comes with a higher risk for personal injury. While the utmost care and attention are observed during roofing projects, there may still be instances when one of the roofers gets hurt. An insured roofing company, in this situation, will cover the medical expenses of the job-related injury. This protects you – the property owner – from having to pay for it yourself.
2. Personal injury risks. The risk of being injured during a roofing project doesn’t only apply to the workers. The fact is that you and your family are also exposed to the risk that comes with a roofing project being done on your property. If you accidentally stepped on a stray nail or a family member were struck by a falling piece of shingle, the liability insurance that the contractor carries would cover the medical expenses of your treatment.
3. Property damage risks. There’s also the likelihood of property damage while the roof repair or replacement is underway. Between the tools and the roofing components that the installers use, your home can suffer damage if an accident occurs. The insurance that your roofing contractor carries will also cover the cost of property damage.
