The roofing trade carries obvious hazards, as does any job which involves working at height. And no matter how careful we are, it only takes one slip and someone or something could be heading for the street below. So it is imperative to get appropriate liability insurance to cover against injury to passersby or any damage to property that may occur.
If a third party is injured by your actions, the likelihood is that they will hold you responsible and, depending on how serious an injury they have sustained, the cost of any compensation due could run into many thousands of pounds. Without the correct cover, the bill could be crippling for you and your business.
Why Coversure for roofers’ insurance?
