Roofing Contractors Insurance

On the rare occasion a rogue tile or tool goes over the edge it can have damaging consequences. If the tool falls and destroys property your business is financially liable. If it falls and injures someone, again your business is liable.

It is important that you operate as safely as is possible to protect people and property. If the worst happens you will need roofers public liability insurance in place. You also need to make sure that you are on a specialist roofing contractors insurance policy.

You do not buy the cheapest tools. Do not buy the cheapest insurance. Low end generic roofing insurance products tend to have many ‘get out’ clauses. They may not worth the paper they are written on.

You also need to be completely honest and disclose all the material facts about your business to be protected. Contact Edison Ives Insurance Solutions today. Or complete our quotation form below.

Roofers Beware!

People slip & trip

If a member of the public hurts themselves on your site it may lead to a roofers public liability insurance claim. If someone working for you slips and hurts themselves, and they tries to obtain compensation, that will come under your Employers Liability roofing insurance.

You will be fined if you do not have Employers Liability insurance

It is important that your staff are protected. Employers Liability insurance is mandatory for any business that has employees, subcontractors, volunteers or anyone working under their direction. You will be fined £2,500 per day for every day you do not have this insurance in place. Make sure your employees are protected. Make sure your business is financially protected. Again, ensure you are on a specialist roofing contractors insurance policy to make sure your employees are protected.

Specialists in roofing insurance

  • You may need something called Professional Indemnity. Professional Indemnity (PI) protects you if any claims are made against your business by a client for their financial losses which they incur due to your work or advice. You will need this cover even if it is just ‘alleged’ otherwise the cost of defending yourself will have to be funded by you. This cover is often a separate policy to your standard roofers insurance. It is often missed on standard roofing insurance policies, but it may be important cover for you to consider. Roofing liability insurance tends to focus on tangible claims and injuries, whereas Professional Indemnity on the intangible.
  • What happens if your tools are lost or stolen? They say a workman is only as good as his tools. Finding yourself without your tools or equipment can be a major pain. It becomes more problematic when you also realise that you now must pay to replace all your tools and equipment. We think it is important to insure your businesses tools. It is important to also double check what the conditions are if you keep your tools in your vans overnight. Most insurers are restrictive and often customers think they have cover when they do not. We check this condition and how you store them. For example some insurers need the vans behind locked gates, others do not. Some offer cover whilst staying overnight at hotels. Some do not. We match your insurance requirements with the right insurer.
  • What would happen if there was a major incident halfway through a job? This is often overlooked. And often the business assumes that the liability lands with the customer. But if there is a fire or storm or any insured peril halfway through the build then the likelihood is that you are liable. If the build has been completely wrecked, then you will need to consider the cost to source all the materials again and commit to the time to complete the build. Again, standard roofing contractors insurance will not cover this.
  • Use a good insurance broker. The average policy wording is 100 pages+. If you are not prepared to read it then a professional insurance broker is essential. They know where to look in policies. They will highlight key conditions. Explain what each cover relates to and are there to make sure you are fully protected. At Edison Ives Insurance Solutions we are roofing insurance specialists, and have access to speciality ‘broker only’ markets.

Incredibly helpful and supportive

I have to say that Tony Suryavansi from Edison Ives not only gave us the lowest quote for the insurance on the building in which our flats are located but also was incredibly helpful and supportive. So there was no question that we would choose the insurance he proposed and we look forward to working with him again next year,

Fred Bishop
Customer Service Was Fantastic

After spending several weeks looking for insurance and not managing to find anything suitable I finally found Edison Ives. Tony took the time to listen to my business insurance needs and find appropriate and reasonable insurance for us. His customer service was fantastic and he explained everything fully so I know exactly what we are covered for. I have already recommended them to friends and will definitely be using them again.

Natalie Lofthouse
Felt Looked After

This year, Paul Blyth looked after me. It felt like Paul knew straight away I didn't want anyone to waste my time. He got straight to the point, pointing out the most important things in my cover which I knew about....but it was nice that it was brought to my attention....whereas other insurance company didn't even mention these points. Hence I say I felt looked after by Edison Ives.

MML Reviews
Exceptional Advice

We have been in business for 40 years and in that time I have dealt with numerous insurance brokers, in obtaining guest house insurance. However I must say that if have found Paul Blythe of Edison Ives exceptional in the level of advice and overall helpfulness. The policy price that he negotiated was very competitive and he managed to obtain a longer unoccupation of our business than normal. He is a man on top of his job and I was more than pleased to place my next policy with his company. I would urge anyone seeking business insurance to at least give Paul an opportunity to quote.

Nothing Was Too Much Trouble

The guys at Edison Ives were brilliant. The insurance required was a little unusual and some brokers were unable to help but this company helped to ensure they found a policy that would cover all aspects and at the best price. Nothing was too much trouble. I would DEFINITELY use them again and recommend them.

Julie Rodriguez
First Class Personal Service

I am a Director of a RTM and am responsible for the maintenance of an apartment block of 12 flats. Our building insurance is due for renewal and I contacted Gary Thorner to obtain a quotation. We spoke on the telephone initially and it was reassuring to speak to somebody who was knowledgeable, able to answer my queries and provide good advice. I received a detailed quotation shortly thereafter, which I shall accept. A first class personal service, and the most competitive quote out of the three I obtained.

Peter Holwill
A Fantastic Company To Deal With

A fantastic company to deal with. Not only were they extremely efficient and provided a number of quotes which were cheaper than the current insurer of our block of flats, but everything was arranged in a timely and friendly manner and whatever was promised in terms of communication and updates was delivered ahead of time. In particular, Gary provided information and practical advice in a friendly, very professional manner without any pressure whatsoever. I would recommend this company and Gary without any hesitation whatsoever and look forward to continuing to do business with them in the future.

Angela Marafelia
Incredible

I spent months trying to find bespoke insurance cover for my small food business but kept getting really bad service, no information and refusal with no explanation. I’d almost lost hope but then I got through to Tony from Edison Ives and he was incredible. Not only did he spend the time to explain things thoroughly, he went out of his way to help me find the right insurance policy for my business. I’m a super happy customer and would Highly recommend! Thank you so so much.

Evey T
Absolute top man

I was let down by another insurance broker at 5 o'clock on a Monday night with a project mobilizing on the Wednesday morning for which I had to have Rope access insurance for at £10M ELI/PLI.

Tony called me back after hours on the Monday night, got all of the information required (walked me through the document) and then put in a monumental effort to get the quotations back before my mobilization time. As a comparison I had other insurance brokers only responding to my enquiry 24hrs later.

Tony got everything in place in time for us to go offshore and successfully deliver our project. Absolute top man and I will be back to speak to Tony for our next insurance coverage (with a bit more time to spare).

Michael Killeen Rope Access
