Why Hiring an Insured Roofer is Important


No two roofs are going to be the same, so the price will vary from roof to roof. There are many factors that go into determining the cost of a new roof. So to better help you understand where your investment goes when making this purchase, I’ve comprised a list of the factors that have a direct effect on the price. 



To begin with, having General Liability insurance is legally required for roofing contractors in Utah. A responsible contractor will comply with all legal requirements, but will not base their quality of work and insurance policies off of this low bar set by the state. That's why we carry a $2 million dollar insurance policy, greatly exceeding the state minimum, and the contractor you choose should, too.

A second layer of protection

Not only does a contractor having insurance show that they want to protect themselves, what should matter most for you is that they're committed to protecting you. In the event that a 'freak accident" occurs, their general liability insurance should cover the costs of the damage. Some examples of what GL insurance could possibly cover are:

  • A pop up rain shower, causing interior damage to your home 

  • An electrical fire from faulty equipment

  • Machinery or material injuring an innocent bystander

If your contractor has a proper General Liability policy, it can protect them, and more importantly you from lawsuits and unresolved home damage caused by accidents, and more.

It's the right thing to do.

A contractor having insurance is in the best interest of all involved. You should never settle for a contractor without insurance, no matter how convincing they are. Small savings by using an unlicensed and uninsured contractor can lead to huge losses if something goes wrong.
