General Liability Coverage For Renovation Specialists

If you specialize in Renovation, you need affordable liability coverage

A Renovation repairs and improves a structure to bring it back to good working order, or return it to its original form. While a Remodel changes the form and use of an area, a Renovation tries to keep the original look and use intact.

There are 3 types of Renovation: facelift, pull-and-replace, and full-scale.

  • Facelift involves minor upgrading and repairing of several surfaces. It is the lowest cost way to improve an area in a subtlety.
  • Pull-And-Replace will replace the item with something newer. This enhances the look and functionally of the area.
  • Full-Scale Renovation encompasses removing everything from the area and replacing it completely.

You may find sometimes that you start out thinking you may get away with a facelift or pull and replace remodel, but when inside the structure, you find that the damage is more extensive than estimated, and a full-scale remodel is needed. This is important when you are estimating a job because your customer will budget for the less expensive project, and then be disappointed when costs run much higher. This is where your Renovation General Liability Insurance Policy will come in handy to protect you from a lawsuit.

A renovation can be as simple as repainting or re-facing cabinets or a bathtub, or installing new electrical or plumbing fixtures. It can be as extensive as a complete tear-out (or gut-job). As a professional renovator, you will need to know the difference, when each level is appropriate, and sometimes you may even find yourself as a gentle but persuasive consultant. You will need to give your customer a realistic estimate for the job that needs to be done. If you believe that only an extensive renovation is required, but your customer wants to "cheap-out" with a simple facelift, you may find it best for both of you if you refuse the work. This will help you reduce frustration, your wasted time, and an unnecessary claim on your Renovation General Liability Insurance Policy. This type of project will just end up being frustrating for you and the client. Both need to be realistic in their expectations of the completed project in look, cost, and time to complete it.

In today's current market, it may take you more time to acquire materials that you and originally anticipated. You will need to factor that into your estimate of how long the project will take. It is always better to under promise and over deliver. Explain to your client that unexpected delays may occur, and that you will keep them informed. Your upfront transparency and honesty should be welcomed and appreciated by your client. In most cases they will understand, as they too run into unanticipated delays in their work and personal lives as well. Be aware that your Renovation General Liability Insurance Policy may cover your losses for unexpected delays, but not for ordering the wrong products.
