Nationwide painting business insurance

Nationwide Small Commercial is a great fit for interior residential or commercial painting and wallcovering work. Exterior painters are also acceptable when the work is limited to 2 stories or less in height.

Painters are subject to construction defect and height work evaluation. This is why it’s so important to protect these contractors while they’re on the job.
