Why Hire a Licensed Contractor?
Before you start remodeling your kitchen or painting your home, please think about who you are hiring. Some homeowners prefer doing home repairs themselves or hiring unlicensed contractors to save money. However, this less expensive road is not always the safest. Hiring a licensed contractor may cost you a bit more, but it is a long- term investment that will eventually save you time and headaches.
A Painting Contractor or General Contractor is licensed. Licensed contractors have experience and knowledge through training and legal processes. They put in the work and time in to gain the appropriate licenses and permits from government agencies, after passing the license test.
A licensed contractor offers liability insurance to protect you, your family, and your home. Liability insurance is protection from personal, bodily injury and property damage that could occur during your project. For example, if a guest is injured upon entering a construction area, the insurance protection will cover any medical fees that may be incurred.
A licensed contractor ensures that all requirements by the city and federal government are met.
Licensed contractors have been trained to understand and meet all requirements set by the city council and federal government. They will schedule inspections to make sure your home meets every single quality requirement and passes all safety examinations. They can become very important when the time comes to sell your home. If you have had any major renovations completed, a potential buyer may ask if the required permits were pulled for the project.
Licensed contractors follow a specific, organized approach to their projects. They carefully plan out the project before starting work. They will prioritize open communication with the homeowner from day one until the day the project is completed. A licensed contractor will also ensure that there is a signed legal contract between the two of you, a protection that only a licensed contractor can offer.
A licensed contractor will ensure your home renovation, addition or remodel project is completed, and stay with you until you are satisfied!
