The Importance of Business Insurance for Painters and Decorators

As a painter and decorator, your aim is to transform the appearance of a property, but if you cause damage to somebody’s treasured possessions then having comprehensive insurance cover in place is critical.

A painter’s life is varied. One day you could be erecting scaffolding on a multi-storey building in preparation for a job, and the next you could be working in the interior of somebody’s home. But whatever work environment you’re in, it’s likely to contain potential hazards to you, your employees or subcontractors, and the public.

Precious possessions could be ruined. You could injure yourself falling from a ladder or scaffolding, or knock off equipment causing damage to property or other people. Some of the materials you use may be toxic, and if inhaled could cause illness which might result in loss of income while you recuperate. And your materials, tools and equipment are not cheap, so if they’re damaged or stolen you may be heavily out of pocket.

So it’s essential to have the right insurance in place to help protect you from some of the challenges you may face in your work.
