Customized Protection

It’s Not About You

More often than not, contractors buy insurance to cover their tools and equipment. We would argue that while this is an important part of your insurance policy it’s not the biggest priority. Mistakes happen, even to the best of us.  And in your business, mistakes can be costly and disruptive to your customers, and we think this should be the number one priority when buying contractors insurance. We encourage our home insurance clients to only hire licensed and insured contractors and that is because we know that in the event something were to happen, they have that piece of mind.  For you, having insurance should be something that you should promote with all of your prospective customers.  At First Durham Insurance we know what you need and would love to help put a policy in place to protect you.  Give us a call or click for a quote!

Is Your Mold Coverage Adequate?

Just like the quality of the work one contractor does compared to another can vary greatly, so too can the coverage offered by today’s commercial insurers. Some insurers put policies in place and while cheap, it often lacks key coverage’s that you’ll likely require in the event of a claim.   Today, no bigger example of this can be seen in the mold coverage offered by most insurance carriers.  Mold is one of those things that can take years before it is noticed, once discovered, it can very expensive to get rid of.  However most insurers will try to exclude or limit the coverage available for mold damage caused by you or your work.  Do you know how your mold coverage stacks up?  If not, give us a call!  We would be happy to provide a free consultation to review and look for gaps in your current coverage.  Give us a call or click for a quote!
