Safety and Insurance – why it should matter to you
Choosing roofing contractors who value their employees Health & Safety should also be one of your top priorities. Many people fall into the lure of a cheep price for repairing or replacing their roof. What most people don’t know is that the cheep price often comes with a hidden cost or additional risk. Unfortunately many local roofing companies do not carry the necessary insurance or WSIB coverage and do not have a health and safety program implemented. This can lead to a number of problems for you (the land owner) who is then personally responsible for the health and safety of every worker on their property as well as any unforeseen damages. Be sure to ask for proof of liability insurance as well as a WSIB eClearance certificate before you commit to any project.
