Drywall Contractors

The contractor's insurance professionals at Fairbanks Insurance Brokers will provide Drywall Contractors with a complete package and pricing on General Liability, Workers' Comp, Inland Marine, Commercial Auto, and the required Surety Bonds.

Like many specialty contractors, drywall contractors have many risk exposures at the job site.

Obtaining a comprehensive contractors insurance package is the first step in securing financial protection in the event of a workplace accident.

Hanging, taping, and then applying mud to drywall is a skill learned over time and requires training and experience. Drywall installers’ exposure to injuries could lead to significant medical expenses and lost wages for employees in the event of an accident.

Here is What We Recommend:

General Liability

The contractor’s General Liability is the bedrock coverage for all drywall contractors.

This policy will provide your drywall business coverage for third-party injury at the job site or property damaged by you or your workers where your company is found liable.

The policy also provides coverage for defense costs which can become the costliest part of a claim.

Workers' Comp

Since drywall contractors are at high risk for injuries, a Workers’ Compensation policy will provide coverage for your employees if they are injured or become ill from a job-related incident. Your policy will help pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and funeral expenses.

If your state requires licensing for drywall contractors, Workers’ Compensation insurance could very well be required to issue the license if your employ workers.

Surety Bonds

A surety bond is a financial guarantee to your state’s licensing department and your customer if you fail to complete a job according to your bid.

A contractor’s license bond is a general requirement to receive a license to operate in most states.

Commercial Auto

A contractor’s commercial auto policy will cover your business vehicles and trailers if you or an insured driver are found liable for an at-fault accident. The policy also covers work vehicles if damaged in an accident, stolen, or vandalized.

Inland Marine

Tools and equipment insured under an inland marine policy will reduce or reimburse out-of-pocket expenses for a covered peril if your tools or equipment are damaged or stolen at the job site, your business, or while in transit.
