CONTRACTORS INSURANCE


Coverages built with contractors in mind.


Contractors’ equipment

Your equipment is your livelihood. Contractors’ equipment provides protection for equipment, small tools, and borrowed equipment when you are on the job. You can also add business income coverage, which protects you against the income you may lose resulting from damaged or lost equipment.


Contractors’ errors and omissions

Even the most seasoned veterans can make mistakes. Instead of being legally responsible for damage, we will pay for the work that you have done incorrectly. Ensure your reputation stays intact by protecting yourself with this valuable coverage.


Additional insured

A contractor or owner of a project may request to be added to your policy as an additional insured. Acuity offers an extensive portfolio of additional insured endorsements to meet the requests of the contracts you sign.





Voluntary property damage

Accidents can happen! Voluntary property damage insurance covers you for accidental damage you may cause to a customer’s property you are working on but was left in your care or control at the job or work site.


Installation

This coverage focuses on smaller jobs such as remodeling projects. It also pays for materials at your construction site as well as in transit.


Builders risk

This coverage is an easy one to understand. It protects the buildings you have under construction and it pays for materials at your construction site or in transit.


John L. is our Construction guru
