Insurance for Carpenters in Texas

Carpenters know that strong and hardwearing structures are made with building materials that work in synergy. The wood panels make up the framework, the concrete masonry units and rebar constitute the walls, and the roofing shingles complete the top portion of the building envelope.

The same is true when it comes to building a successful career as a carpenter. Yes, you might have your broad experience and outstanding workmanship, but you certainly can't do it alone. For one thing, you need to have the implements that will allow you to ply your trade; and, for another, it's also important to build a good network of clients and business partners.

Another essential element is protection for your career. Carpenters are exposed to a lot of risks every day, and work-related injuries and damage to your own and other people's property could prove to be huge financial setbacks. This is why you need an excellent coverage which only the right insurance products can provide.

  • Carpentry contractors
  • Carpenters
  • JoinersFramers
  • Shipwrights

Whatever your specialization is, Quote Texas Insurance is prepared to provide you with insurance products that are tailored to your particular needs.

Commercial general liability insurance – This type of insurance policy provides coverage for the most fundamental risks which you might face as a carpentry professional. It could provide financial protection against third-party lawsuits, medical bills, and other financial liabilities brought about by injuries or accidents. A commercial general liability insurance can provide protection whether a mishap happens inside your business premises (e.g. a joinery shop) or in other places (e.g. a school construction site).

Professional liability insurance – As a professional carpenter, you might work on your projects with utmost care, but a client might still bring you to court alleging shoddy workmanship or negligence on your part. For instance, a leak on a roof you built that causes damage to indoor properties might prompt the owner of the house to file a lawsuit. Thankfully, there's professional liability insurance to lend you a hand. Also known as errors and omissions insurance, it helps protect service-providing individuals like carpenters from financial loss due to negligence claims by providing coverage for defense costs.

Commercial property insuranceCommercial property insurance helps carpenters and carpentry businesses pay for damaged buildings and other properties. For instance, your main business location — whether it's the office of your carpentry business, a joinery shop, or a furniture store — needs protection from risks like fire, theft, vandalism, and civil disturbances like riots. The same is true for your various important tools, equipment, and supplies, which you use to provide services to your clients.

Workers' compensation insuranceWorkers' compensation insurance can provide wage replacement and medical benefits to carpenters and other carpentry professionals who get injured at work. Also known as workman's compensation insurance, it covers for an employee's medical and hospital bills and a portion of their lost wages. It can also cover for funeral costs should the injury result in death. This is a very important type of insurance product for carpenters, who work in high-risk environments and frequently use dangerous tools and equipment.

Commercial auto insurance – Your carpentry business likely relies on vehicles, which can include vans for the transport of tools and equipment and trucks for the delivery of construction supplies. If you have a joinery shop with an allied furniture store, you also need vehicles to move both materials and finished goods. It's a good idea to have a reliable commercial auto insurance policy, which can provide coverage for physical damages to cars, vans, and trucks, as well other liability claims that may arise from accidents.
