Roofing contractors insurance is currently available with affordable competitive premiums without any compromise on the level of cover required. We can arrange cover for roofing contractors working with or without heat, unlimited height and with asbestos risks.

Roofing is considered a high risk occupation.

Our brokers understand this and will tailor roofers insurance liability policies to suit each individual contractor no matter how big or small your roofing business is.
