Our carpenter business insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. You’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

You accidentally damage electrical wiring while repairing a wall. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay to repair the damage.

Accidents that hurt someone

Your client trips over unfinished flooring and gets injured while you show them your progress. Your general liability insurance would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees if you go to court.

Professional mistakes 

There’s a miscommunication about which type of wood to use and paneling has to be redone. E&O insurance helps you defend yourself if you’re accused of making a mistake that causes someone to lose money. 

Workplace injuries 

You hurt your knees installing lower cabinets in all the units of a large apartment building. Workers’ compensation coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages — not to mention it’s usually required by law if you have employees. 

Injuries and damage involving your business vehicles

The suspension on your truck fails after a heavy load and it needs to be replaced. Commercial auto coverage will help pay for the repairs. This coverage is also usually required by law for business-owned vehicles. 

Theft or damage to your tools

Your table saw rusted after an automatic sprinkler system soaked it at a job site. You can choose to add tools and equipment insurance to your general liability coverage to help pay for replacement costs.
