What is Residential General Contractors insurance?
General contractors manage the construction of a new building or renovation to an existing building. They are in charge of the entire project from initial clearing and excavation of the land to finishing the final structure. You have a lot on your shoulders when you are a general contractor. Whether you're building houses or larger project, you may have subcontractors working for you, and they, in turn, have subcontractors working for them. Each sub has a specialty, from plumbing to roofing to framing, and the list goes on. With all of this activity, you need good general contractor insurance to protect yourself against financial loss.
