How Much Does Roofing Insurance Cost?

It’s hard to say exactly how much roofers insurance costs, since it varies tremendously. Overall, your roofing insurance rates will depend on things like your exact line of work and the risks involved in what you do, as well as the services you provide, where you work, and how many people you employ. Each of these aspects of your work carries a different level of risk, which is what our roofing liability insurance costs are based on.

Roofing insurance costs can also vary because we offer more than one type of plan, which you can choose according to your particular business needs. Plus, each plan for our roofer insurance has different limits, deductibles and coverage.

What all of our policies do have in common, however, is their affordable price, in both what you’ll pay today and the total roofing insurance cost. For instance, if you choose to pay on a monthly basis, as opposed to annually, you can do that without any extra charges. In addition, we help keep your roofing insurance costs down by giving you the ability to download as many certificates of insurance as you want, anytime, instantly and for free. You can also add as many additional insureds as you like. All of these aspects come together to make buying your roofer insurance from Next Insurance fit right within your budget.

Below you’ll find information on some of our roofing liability insurance rates, and you can learn what kind of insurance a roofer needs. But since your work could vary so much from that of another professional, the best way to know what your roofers insurance cost will be is to fill out our online application and get a roofing insurance quote just for you.

How Much is Roofing Insurance for General Liability?

General liability insurance generally costs our customers between $1,247-$2,373 annually, or $104-$198 per month.
Your roofing insurance cost for general liability insurance is based on your particular business activities, where you operate and the number of people being covered, and other aspects of your business.

As the most basic type of insurance for roofers, general liability insurance can protect you from certain types of expenses. These could include:

  • Injuries to people other than you or your employees, which can lead to medical expenses and lawsuits
  • Damage to property which is blamed on your work or staff members
  • Claims that you’ve injured someone’s reputation, either verbally or through written words

Overall, we aim to keep your roofing liability insurance rates as affordable as possible, by eliminating any unnecessary coverage, and focusing only on the elements that are relevant to your precise line of work.

How Much is Roofer Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Insurance?

Roofing professional liability insurance starts at $50/month and relates to the work that you do as a roofer.

Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions insurance, is connected specifically to your role as a roofer, and the work you do as a roofer. In the case of professional liability insurance for roofers, that could mean mistakes specific to your profession like poorly laid shingles that blew off in the wind and need to be replaced, or if you failed to properly seal a roof and there was a rainstorm, so now everything needs to be redone.

At Next Insurance, we offer professional liability insurance for roofers as part of our Pro and Pro Plus insurance plans.
