As with all commercial insurance, it really just depends on the scope and volume of operations undertaken by the roofing contractor. The more jobs you take on, the more chance that something may go wrong. If you only do 4 or 5 roofs per year, then your coverage would be much cheaper than a roofer who does 150 roofs per year.

This greatly effects the risk factor associated with your coverage.
