How do insurance companies define Window Installers?

Door and window installers prepare the opening, hang the door or window in the opening and seal the opening. This provides a moisture barrier that protects the house from weather related damage. Installers may or may not sell the windows or doors. Installers represent one manufacturer exclusively or represent several. Some installers have no inventory. Others have showrooms and even warehouses full of merchandise.

What risk exposure do Window Installers have?


  • Property exposures depend on the whether the installer has a showroom and/or inventory. If the installer accepts delivery of merchandise on behalf of the client at its own location, the property to be covered includes all windows and doors awaiting installation. In addition to windows and doors, the contractor may have lumber and other building materials to use in the window and door installation.
  • Inland marine exposures consist of the contractors’ equipment and installation floaters. Tools are the primary contractor’s equipment exposure but, in addition, there may be other equipment such as ladders and scaffolding needed to reach upper levels. The installation floater exposure varies depending on whether the contractor delivers the windows and doors or has them drop shipped to the job site. The contract with the client determines who is responsible for the windows and doors.
  • Premises liability exposures consist of the contractors’ equipment and installation floaters. Tools are the primary contractor’s equipment exposure but, in addition, there may be other equipment such as ladders and scaffolding needed to reach upper levels. The installation floater exposure varies depending on whether the contractor delivers the windows and doors or has them drop shipped to the job site. The contract with the client determines who is responsible for the windows and doors.
  • Completed operations liability exposures are important. Quality control and strict compliance with all manufacturer’s and designer’s specifications are necessary. Poor record-keeping may result in payment of otherwise questionable claims. Especially important are the inspection and acceptance of the work by the owner or general contractor. Inadequate monitoring of work orders and change orders may be an area of concern. Improper exterior sealing can lead to moisture buildup and growth of mold and other forms of fungus.
  • Automobile exposures depend on who delivers the doors and windows. If the installer only installs and the factory delivers the product to the job site, the exposure is usually limited to pickup trucks and vans. However, if the installer delivers windows and doors, the exposure can be more difficult, especially if custom or out sized windows and doors are involved. Hazards include failure to properly secure the load and equipment failure, especially tie-downs and hitches. Poor driver selection and training, and inadequate supervision present significant risks, especially in cases of over sized loads. Failure to monitor driving records or to ensure drivers have the appropriate training and license may also be a concern. Vehicle age, condition, and maintenance are all important items to consider.
  • Workers compensation hazards depend on where the doors or windows are being installed. Installation jobs above grade jobs include the possibility of falling because old windows must be removed before new ones can be installed. Exterior work on the windows usually involves scaffolding. There is the potential for glass cuts as well as hammer, chisel and saw related injuries. Lifting injuries, hernias, strains, sprains and back injuries may also occur. Minor injuries may be frequent even when the severity exposure is controlled. Absence of basic safety equipment, such as scaffolding safety belts, steel toed shoes, and eye protection may indicate a morale hazard. Employee selection, training and supervision also affect loss potential. If the installer also customizes the doors and windows, dust and machinery hazards may be present.
