Artisan, general, and specialty contractors have seen dramatic changes within their industry over the past decade. Along with these changes and projected growth of the contracting and construction business, the demand for high-risk coverage grows as well.
A recent article in National Underwriter highlights that insurance prices for the construction business have increased by 10–15 percent. This can be attributed to the increase of commercial auto rates due to “the spike in auto accidents and concerns about construction defect claims in areas hit hard by last year’s hurricanes.”
Contractors have had their processes altered through legislation, unreasonable contractual obligations, and construction defect claims. It is now more important than ever for contractors to purchase insurance specifically designed for their industry. This is where Veracity comes in. Find the right solution for your contractor clients with the help of one of our brokers.
