Because roofers and scaffolders work at heights and often use heat, their work is particularly prone to risks.

You run a potentially dangerous business that could involve employees falling from height or tools and materials dropping onto members of the public. So it’s good practice to ensure that you, your employees, your customers and their properties are properly protected should something go wrong.

Our roofing contractor insurance is suitable for contractors who specialise across a range of roofing areas such as slating and tiling, flat and felt roofing, industrial sheeting and cladding. It can also provide cover for heritage roofing, lead, zinc and copper roofing as well as green roofing and waterproof coatings.

Insuring scaffolders is not as simple as other trades due to the heights and the added risk that it brings. Ensuring you are fully covered is vital. At Adler Insurance Group we have the experience to ensure every angle is covered, whilst keeping costs down. We can arrange covers for your scaffolding business; including public liability insurance, employers liability insurance and additional covers such as tools and contract works. These can be combined into a single policy to provide you with the best value. Whether you’re a tradesman with a number of employees or you are self-employed, we can get you covered.
