Tile Contractor Insurance in Wisconsin

What does Tile Contractor Insurance cover?

Tile contractor insurance, also referred to as tiler’s insurance is general liability insurance.  General liability insurance is the main insurance policy for your Wisconsin tile installation business.  General liability insurance for tiling installation companies covers bodily injury and property damage claims.  There are several different limits of liability coverage available, like $500,000/$1,000,000 and $1,000,000/$2,000,000.  The $1,000,000/$2,000,000 limit is recommended and required by many Wisconsin general contractors.  There can also be a property damage deductible.  This means you would pay the first say, $500, $1,000, or $2,500 if you were to damage something “other than” what you are working on.  This should be taken into considered before purchasing your tile contractor insurance policy.  General liability insurance covers your premises, products, operations and completed operations.  Feel free to click here for a more detailed definition of general liability insurance:

How much does tile installers insurance cost?

As independent insurance agents and advisors, we strongly believe in shopping multiple Wisconsin insurance companies (for maximum savings).  Insurance companies have different appetites for business.  Some will have great rates for you and others, not so great and some won’t insure you at all.

An experienced contractor’s insurance agent is also important in finding cheap rates for tile contractor insurance.  Wisconsin tile and stone installation businesses might expect to pay $482.00- $600.00 per year for a start up with one active owner.  An example of a non-active owner would be a person doing the accounting.  They are not out actually doing the tiling work.

Tile installation insurance is rated on payroll, sales and sub-costs, which might include materials.  A set rate is assigned to each active owner and then any employee payroll is factored in.  Your tile installation sales are then considered and sub-contractor costs (normally including materials) are added.  Having a good claims history, often referred to as loss runs, can help you get lower rates.  Also, your experience speaks clearly and those years in the tiling industry can have a positive effect on your tile contractor business insurance premiums.
