Roofing and scaffolding

Liability & Construction

We are the 'go-to' provider for Roofing and Scaffolding risks via Aviva's platform Marketplace, demonstrating the quality of our product and level of expertise that we hold.


Due to the added risk that working at height brings, insuring a roofing or scaffolding business requires a specialist cover.

Our scheme covers the legal liability of Roofers & Scaffolders for Employees, Third Party Property & Injury and Products in respect of any damage or injury caused by them. It offers all the benefits you’d expect to see as standard for a minimum annual premium of £7,500 +IPT (£6,500 +IPT for domestic only where no use of heat).

In addition, if you are an Aviva Club 110 member, any new business will count towards your deal
