You’ve decided now is the time to take the plunge and have your home or office repainted. Should you already have an Upper Highway Painting Contractor in mind, but haven’t made your final decision yet, then be sure to read our previous blog to find out what you need to look out for.
Although painting your home is certainly an exciting experience, it does have its fair share of risks. We’ve highlighted two of these risks below:
- Injury On Site
There are many opportunities for injury on a paint site. A painter could slip and fall while painting your roof, or they could even fall from a ladder while painting. Both of these scenarios would end with a significant injury that you would be held liable for should you or your contractor not have workman’s compensation. Workman’s compensation is a form of insurance that provides compensation to employees injured while working.
- Damage to Property/Household Contents
Your new and expensive carpets are also at risk (spilled paint is definitely something worth crying over). There is also the possibility of painters accidentally walking through your home with paint on their work boots. Unfortunately, the cost of replacing those carpets will be for your account. However, a contractor with the correct insurances in place will be able to compensate you for any damage to property or household contents that may occur during this time.
These are just some of the reasons why it is so important to check if the company you have hired have cover for situations like these. At T-rifik Painters we have workman’s compensation and all relevant insurances to ensure that our valued clients are protected at all times. We believe that this is just one of the many ways that we are ahead of our competition.
