If you want to have work done on your home or you are considering building a new home, then we cannot stress enough how important it is to hire licensed contractors. Hiring non-licensed contractors can leave you with below-standard products and zero accountability from the contractors. There are many reasons why hiring licensed contractors is so important. Just a few of these reasons are:
- Insurance – A licensed contractor will hold insurance that is vital for protecting your home and you. Accidents do happen, and when they do, you will want a contractor who has insurance to cover the cost of those accidents.
- Training – Licensed contractors will hold the proper training to get the job done correctly and up to industry standards.
- Meets Requirements – There are industry requirements that have been set by city and government agencies. Licensed contractors will work hard to ensure that all these requirements are met if not exceeded. This is especially important if you are planning on selling your home in the future. A potential buyer can ask if the proper permits were used on your home repairs or additions.
- Completes the Project – A licensed contractor will finish the project even when things go wrong or the project gets difficult. If they do not complete the project properly, they could risk losing their license. A non-licensed contractor may decide to not finish the job when things get tough.
