Thanks! Though some may argue how long I've been in "business" since I don't yet have insurance. This will be my 5 season I believe. Either 4 or 5. LONG DAY!

start with a million coverage. then when you grow bump it to 2 million. i know it sounds alot but isnt that much difference. then you will look into being bonded. but thats a different ball field. but to bid on some of the projects i do, you need 15 mill to even be looked at.
