CONSTRUCTION EXPERT CORNER
Meet our expert
Here at Acuity, we understand the challenges you face as a contractor. My focus is helping you overcome those challenges and find success in your industry by bringing my construction expertise to insurance. I am John L, Construction Business Segment Specialist at Acuity.
Have questions? We have answers.
I’m helping to revolutionize the relationship between contractor and insurance company so both understand each other and can accomplish tasks together as a team.
There is no substitute for experience. Having worked as a carpenter all the way up to a business owner gives me a unique perspective of all aspects of construction. Teaching Acuity’s employees the processes of a construction company helps them better understand contractors, more accurately assess risk, and ensure they have the proper coverages and products to best serve the industry.
Many tradesmen start their own business because they are very skilled and confident in their abilities. On the business side, finding a good construction attorney to review your business practice can eliminate many problems. Let the attorney know how much money you can allocate to get started. Then, set aside some funds for a business review each year. Get help managing the office if needed. Look for any weaknesses in your company and find the best person to put in that position.
To make Acuity the “go-to” insurance company for contractors—a place where employees, agents, and our insured contractors can continue to be educated on the industry. Understanding the processes and the heart of construction in simple ways can show we know more about the industry than simply writing policies.
We know contractors. Our knowledge at your fingertips.
