Understanding public liability insurance for roofers

When purchasing roofers insurance, you’ll come across a range of standard covers. But arguably the most common is ‘public liability cover’, and rightly so. The backbone of any insurance policy, it protects a business against injury to third parties or damage to their property. As such, it will cover you if you’re sued by your customers or members of the public for these reasons. Some of the scenarios it covers are:

  • Damage to a client’s car after dropping a tile from a roof.
  • Injury to a member of the public after they trip over your toolbox.
  • Damage to a customer’s roof due to a faulty fixing job.

Why do you need public liability insurance for roofers

Public liability insurance is important for two main reasons. The most obvious is that it safeguards your business against costly compensation claims and legal expenses due to injury or property damage caused on the job. Possessing this cover could be the difference between your company going bankrupt or staying afloat. 

Having public liability insurance is also important for attracting customers. Prospective clients are much more likely to work with you if you have comprehensive insurance policy, as this shows them that you take your safety seriously and are therefore trustworthy.

Roofing Insurance: Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need insurance for torch down roofing?

If you use heat as part of your roofing work, then you’ll need specialist high-risk insurance. Heat includes the use of blow lamps, blow torches, welding or flame cutting equipment and vessels for heating bituminous compounds. Utilising angle grinders for cutting roof tiles would not be considered heat use.

At Tradesman Saver, we specialise in roofing insurance for slaters, tilers and general roofers who don’t use heat.  However, for those who do, you can get a quote from our business insurance website, Brisco Business, which specialises in insurance for high-risk trades.

How much roofers insurance do I require?

The amount of roofers insurance you need will depend on things like how risky your jobs are, the size of your contracts and the value of your equipment. We can help you work out how much is necessary if you’re unsure.

What information do I need to provide?

When obtaining a roofers insurance quote, you’ll need to provide us with basic information such as your name, address and the type of work you regularly undertake. We’ll also ask you about the size of your business, which includes divulging information about your annual turnover and how many employees you have.
