Contractors’ insurance protects against the financial risks present at all stages of business operations.
The Oregon construction industry is a thriving but inherently dangerous business. When construction starts booming, so do the risks. Contractors of all trades of sizes risk bodily injury and property damage claims or direct lawsuits due to your products or services. Whether you operate your contractor’s business in Oregon or any other state, once you’re open for business, you’re open to risk from third-party or employment legal action.
A formidable Oregon contractors’ insurance package will safeguard your business in the event of an unforeseen incident.
Oregon is more diligent than many other states regarding contractor licensing requirements. We urge all individuals seeking to join the Oregon construction community to visit the Oregon Construction Contractors Board to verify insurance requirements and determine if your operation mandates a license.
With affordable rates fit for any budget, our comprehensive commercial insurance programs provide peace of mind, financially protect your business, and allow you to face risk uncertainty head-on in a stress-free work environment.
