Types of Insurance for Contractors

We take the time to understand your line of work and help you select from a wide range of contractors insurance solutions:

  • Property insurance: Whether you work out of an office or your contractor van, count on the Sutton Agency to help you protect your business property, including tools and equipment, with proper insurance.
  • Builders risk: This is a form of property insurance designed to cover against damage from fire, vandalism, severe weather or other unforeseen events that may occurs during construction. As the value of the finished building grows, so too does the coverage.
  • Surety bonds and equipment floaters: Sometimes the most important tools for the job are the certificates and surety bonds required before you can get to work. Count on our East Islip office staff to provide necessary paperwork promptly. We will also help you determine what coverage may be necessary for the equipment and tools you use.
  • General liability insurance: Liability insurance can protect your construction business in the event that someone files a lawsuit against you for property damage or injury. It will cover injuries to non-employees and damage to property you don’t own. The protection would include defense costs, if necessary, up to the policy limits.
  • Commercial vehicles: There are many reasons the state of New York requires all drivers to properly insure their vehicles. Don’t put yourself or your business at risk by neglecting to insure your work truck or contractors van. Some artisan contractors may think they are covered by personal auto insurance, but it is likely not enough. Rely on our experienced auto insurance agents to help you protect your commercial vehicle.
  • Workers comp: The risks you face on the job are many, and we can help you protect yourself with workers comp in the event someone in your shop is injured or becomes ill at a construction site. New York workers compensation insurance may be required if you employ even one person in your construction business.
