What Framing Contractors Are All About:

Companies categorized under this industry work mainly in structural framing and sheathing. Other services include additions, alterations, maintenance, and repairs.

What type of insurance does this industry need?

  • General Liability This policy protects your business in case of third party claims, such as bodily injury or property damage. For example, the common "slip-and-fall" claim would be covered by your General Liability policy. General Liability insurance is often considered to be the core coverage, particularly for businesses that regularly physically interact with customers or sell physical goods. In addition, many businesses have a contract, like a loan or a lease, requiring that they have this coverage.
  • Workers Compensation Workers Compensation covers an employee's lost wages and the cost of resulting medical treatment if they suffer a work-related injury or disease. It also covers services needed to help the employee recover and return to work. Workers Compensation coverage is mandatory in most states. The number of employees after which it's required differs by state, but you will generally need coverage once you have employees.
  • Umbrella Insurance Umbrella insurance offers excess liability protection in the case that your General Liability, Commercial Auto Liability, and/or Employer's Liability coverage is insufficient. It essentially acts as a "back-up" plan, providing additional financial protection in the case that your business faces a particularly large claim that exceeds a single policy's limits. This policy can be particularly valuable for a business that faces a variety of risks and has multiple liability policies.
  • Inland Marine Inland Marine insurance covers goods in-transit either on land or through shallow water, as well as certain types of movable property (such as medical equipment). If your business has valuable equipment which regularly needs to be moved, then this can be a core policy to protect your property.
