ECIC : launches new insurance scheme for roofing contractors

0 0

Electrical Contractors’ Insurance Company Ltd (ECIC) has developed a comprehensive package of insurance protection for roofers which is available to members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) and those registered as a CompetentRoofer.

The new scheme features a comprehensive range of cover including:

– Employers’ Liability

– Public/Products Liability

– Financial Loss

– Professional Indemnity

– Contractors’ All Risks

– All Risks Property, Business Interruption, Money and Goods in Transit

The insurance scheme is suitable for contractors who specialise in roofing disciplines such as pitched and heritage roofing, lead/zinc/copper roofing, green roofing, and waterproof coatings.

Richard Forrest Smith, Chief Underwriting Officer and Deputy Managing Director at ECIC said: “This product has been developed specifically for the roofing trade and our underwriters have ensured the wording of the policy is tailored to the profession’s needs.”

“This type of work requires contractors to have a real understanding of all the risks involved and ensure they have the right cover for the work they will be carrying out. The ECIC cover can also be extended to accommodate working at a greater height level than most schemes.”

Ray Horwood, Chief Executive at the NFRC said: “NFRC has worked closely with ECIC for many years. Previously only full NFRC members were able to access the NFRC Insurance Scheme. We have now widened access under the scheme to additionally include those registered as a CompetentRoofer.”

The scheme is available now and also features no height limit and interest free instalments.
