CONTRACTORS GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
Contractors General Liability Insurance is a type of commercial insurance designed to protect contractors against liability caused by injury and damages that may arise from work performed on a construction project. It is a specific type of liability insurance policy geared for small artisan contractors, remodel contractors, and larger contractors including hard to place risks. Contractor Liability protects against a range of issues including accidents, negligence and oversight. If you are an employer or contractor in any field of expertise, it is important that you are aware of all the potential pitfalls that can occur on the job, and how the right insurance can protect you from any unforeseen complications down the line.
Although Contractor General Liability is not required by law in California, if the contractor does not carry general liability insurance, the contractor would be personally liable for any damages caused by the contractor while executing a contract. Because of this, most project managers and home owners require a certificate of insurance before a contractor can start a project.
CALIFORNIA CONTRACTOR’S LICENSE BOND
California Contractor’s Bond is a requirement for the issuance of an active license, reactivation of a license, and for the maintenance of an actively renewed license (Business and Professions Code Section). The bond is filed for the benefit of consumers who may be damaged as a result of defective construction or other license law violations, and for the benefit of employees who have not been paid wages that are due to them. Our competitive CA Contractor’s Bond Programs make the process easy and affordable from quote, to purchase, to bond issuance.
Builders Risk Insurance, also known as Course of Construction Insurance is a type of property insurance designed to provide temporary coverage against damage or loss during the course of construction. Builders risk insurance can cover the structure only, or can be expanded to include building materials on the job site or in transit to the site. Builders risk insurance can be purchased for new construction and remodeling projects. Builders Risk Insurance protects against damage done to the insured structure from a variety of events. Most builders risk policies cover property damage from fire, wind, theft, lightning, hail, explosion and vandalism.
