Contractors’ insurance protects against the financial risks present at all stages of business operations.
Plumbing Contractors install, repair, and maintain different types of plumbing systems. Plumbers rely on specialized tools and equipment to perform their trade effectively — including torches and other heating devices — which create significant exposure for bodily injury and catastrophic property damage in the event of an unforeseen incident. As fire and water damage are common risks found on plumbing projects, exposure to lead, sulfur dioxide, asbestos, and other substances can leave workers with serious work-related injuries or occupational illnesses.
