(WSIB) and General Liability Insurance – Homeowners are always urged to check references and past work before hiring a contractor or painter. No one wants to end up with a bad renovation. However many fail to verify if a contractor is insured and covered by WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board or Workers Compensation). That mistake could end up costing you WAY more than a bad renovation.
Injury and insurance coverage might seem like an afterthought, but ponder these statistics and you’ll quickly learn it’s much more of a problem than you might think.
Statistics also show that the smaller the Toronto painting contractor the more likelihood of a claim. Contractors with annual revenues of under $1 million averaged five claims per year.
So how could that end up costing you? If a worker is injured on your property and the painting contractor is not covered by WSIB, the cost could come out of your own pocket.
Along with injuries, if a painting contractor has General Liability Insurance that also covers you from any property damage (your property and your neighbors) that occurs during a renovation. Again if the contractor lacks insurance, the financial burden of any damage will fall on YOU.
And remember, along with proper coverage, all our work comes with a Two Year Quality Guarantee. Even when the job is done, we’re still there for you.
