How Much is Flooring Installation General Liability Insurance?

General liability insurance for flooring installation costs most of our customers between $350-$539 annually, or $29-$45 per month.
General liability insurance for flooring installers can help to protect you from certain kinds of costs. These expenses could include claims related to:

  • If people other than you or your team are injured
  • If property is damaged in conjunction with your work
  • If you’re accused of damaging someone else with either written or spoken words

Having flooring installation general liability insurance could protect you from the cost of paying medical fees if your assistant drops a stone tile on someone’s foot. It also could save you from having to pay to fix a client’s walls if you accidentally scratch them with your tools, or cover damages in case someone sues you for using a photo of their new bathroom tiles in your advertising, without their permission.

General liability is insurance we recommend to most professionals, and it’s especially relevant for contractors such as flooring professionals, who are often working out of their customers’ homes or offices. It can include legal expenses, medical costs, and more.

 

Most of our customers pay: $350-$539 annually, or between $29-$45 per month
Per occurrence limit: $300,000-$1,000,000, depending on your policy
Aggregate policy limit: $300,000-$2,000,000, depending on your policy
Deductible: $0

How Much is Flooring Installer Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Insurance?

We offer professional liability insurance for flooring installers as part of our Pro and Pro Plus plans, which are priced from $29/month. Professional liability insurance for flooring installation is different than general liability insurance for flooring installation.

Professional liability insurance relates to cases where you are accused of completing work in an unsatisfactory manner. Even though you always do your best, sometimes you get a client who isn’t satisfied. It could be that they think you didn’t lay the flooring smoothly enough, or that you chose the wrong material for that floor.

These claims mainly require your work to be redone, which means they are often less expensive than general liability claims. As a result, professional liability flooring installation insurance premiums cost less than your flooring installation general liability insurance premiums.

We know that it can be confusing to figure out what insurance a flooring installer needs, and what the difference is between different types of insurance. That’s why we offer a package product that’s tailored to your needs. That way, in case of a claim, you don’t need to worry about technical insurance details; you can simply make your claim and get on your way. It’s one more way we aim to make your life a little bit simpler.

Most of our customers pay: An additional 4-8% for this coverage, which is reflected in the total policy cost
Per occurrence limit: $10,000-$20,000, depending on your policy
Aggregate policy limit: $25,000-$50,000, depending on your policy
Deductible: $500
