Thinking of getting Roof Demossing or Roof Moss Removal? Here Are Some Facts About Hiring Companies Without Insurance or WCB Coverage.
Did you know that in British Columbia, if you hire a company that does not have WorkSafeBC, or WCB, coverage and they get hurt on your property, you are liable for their injuries and recovery? It’s true.
Also, did you know that if you hire a company that does not have WorkSafeBC, or WCB coverage, you can be liable to pay that company’s WCB premium? Shocking truth and WorkSafeBC will verify this! I’m talking about their delinquent account balance, possibly thousands of dollars. You can go onto WorkSafeBC website and request a Clearance Letter for any company that you are thinking of hiring. This will give you proof that they have WCB insurance and if their account is up to date and it only takes a few minutes to find out. I have seen some company’s advertising claiming to have WCB coverage and upon checking myself, I found this to NOT be true. There are frauds everywhere and all they want is your money. Please be Careful.
I think you know the risks of hiring a company that does not have liability insurance too. Meaning, if they break something of yours or damage something, like your roof, gutters, siding, windows etc, you may have trouble collecting from them, if being able to collect anything at all.
