insurance for carpenters

Measure twice, insure once.

The finishing touches of a home are usually the results of the workmanship and talent of a skilled carpenter. We look to these artisans to bring life to our homes, offices, restaurants, retail shops, and more. Carpentry can involve interior work such as repairing or finishing as well as exterior carpentry, which includes framing. In performing this type of work, carpenters are exposed to a number of risks – all of which need the assurance of a broad, comprehensive, and affordable insurance program.

A complete toolbox of insurance coverage.

The professionals at Martin Insurance Group specialize in providing contractor insurance, including coverage for carpenters in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. We can start by customizing a commercial package policy with a complete suite of coverages or provide individual policies to insure against these risks, depending on the size of your operation and your specific exposures.

Our programs can also protect against property damage, including your office operation and material, equipment, and vehicle storage facilities. If you do woodwork at your shop, you’ll want to make sure you have enough property coverage to respond in the event of a fire. If you store lumber on your premises, you also have a high risk for loss, including theft. Our staff can evaluate your exposures to ensure that your property coverage is sufficient — and that you also have strong loss protocol measures in place to mitigate risk.

It’s also important to insure any tools and equipment you rent, as well as building materials, and any items transported to and from the job. In our review of your business, we’ll assess your requirements for inland marine, builder’s risk, and installation coverage.

As with any type of business, liability exposures are a very real concern. Job sites also represent exposures for carpenters, including the potential of injury to the public and employees of other contractors, not to mention damage to their property or completed work. Tools, power cords, building materials and scrap all pose trip hazards. The use of subcontractors as well as any other contractual liabilities also should be examined, which our staff is equipped and ready to do.

Additionally, if you provide the framework upon which others build, completed operations coverage is an important policy to have. Quality control and full compliance with all construction, material and design specifications are necessary. If you have employees, we’ll review your workers compensation exposures and provide you with protection for employees in the event they are injured on the job.
