Gutter Cleaning Insurance
Why do I need gutter cleaning insurance?
Gutter cleaners have an important job. Thanks to you, residents don’t have to deal with nasty water damage or costly home repairs.
But sometimes, clients only realize there’s a problem when something has already gone wrong. When you’re called in, it’s usually been a bad day for your client. You’re there to make it a better one.
As a professional who is often dealing with clients who are already upset, you need to keep your gutter cleaning business protected with general liability insurance. No matter how scrupulous and careful you are, bad moods don’t discriminate if a client needs to blame someone because he believes the situation is worse than before.
Your job often involves tall ladders and even higher-reaching courage. But with that height comes risk. If you were to cause an accident, bodily injury to a third party could result in a claim for damages, including medical bills, that you’d be expected to pay.
If you were to damage the roof of a client’s house while scraping out leaves and debris from their blocked gutter, they could potentially file a claim against you, resulting in fees for damages and even legal defense costs.
This is why general liability insurance is essential. This coverage protects gutter cleaners from the financial ramifications of third-party claims for bodily injury and property damage.
Despite your best efforts, there is always a chance that an accident might occur. Don’t let the fear of having to pay for damages, or defend yourself in a lawsuit, warranted or not, threaten your financial or mental well-being.
No matter what, make sure you keep your assets out of the gutter with a strong small business insurance policy.
What does Gutter Cleaning Insurance cover?
The Gutter Cleaning Liability Insurance arranged by Thimble can help protect gutter cleaners from the financial consequences of liability claims in situations like the following:
Third-party, non-employee bodily injury: You’re constantly working at other people’s properties. If, for whatever reason, your services cause a third party to incur an injury, then you could be responsible.
Third-party property damage: Given the nature of your work, there’s always the chance that an accident could happen. If you happen to drop something on your client’s lawn furniture while working on the gutters, for example, you could be held responsible by the property owners. Should a third party file a claim, you could be responsible for the cost(s) of a repair or replacement.

What are the Gutter Cleaning Insurance policy limits?
Thimble’s Gutter Cleaning Insurance comes with two distinct policy limits: $1 million or $2 million. The difference in coverage can have an immense impact on your peace of mind (and protection) in the future, so consider the benefits of a slightly larger policy before making a decision.
Remember, insurance is an investment in yourself.
Are workplace injuries of my staff covered?
No, general liability insurance only covers bodily injury claims for third parties. To cover that of your staff, consider purchasing a workers’ compensation insurance policy as well. In many states, if you have any full-time employees, then you’re legally required to carry workers’ comp.
Does Thimble’s Gutter Cleaning Insurance cover damage to my equipment?
General liability insurance for gutter cleaners only covers damages to third-parties, meaning you’ll need another type of coverage to protect your equipment.
However, at Thimble, our monthly general liability insurance plans come bundled with business equipment protection. This optional add-on comes in $1000, $2500, and $5000 limits, and protects your business equipment whenever you’re using it.
However, if you use your vehicle for work and own/lease an office space, you should consider looking into commercial auto and commercial property insurance.
