8. Why should you hire a licensed and insured contractor?
We are often asked this question, especially in this day and age, when the desire to cut corners and save money often trumps the desire to adhere to high standards of integrity.
We created this page to steer you away from making a decision that could cost you thousands of dollars and countless hours. Hiring an unlicensed contractor is illegal. Or an unlicensed handyman can contract projects only up to $600.00. Contractors who do not have the integrity to earn a license or properly insure themselves are often only in business to benefit themselves, even if it means providing faulty construction and costing their clients thousands of dollars in re-do's and repairs. Worst-case scenarios involve theft and dishonesty.
Please, do not risk your valuable time and money by hiring a contractor who is not willing to properly invest in their trade. A contractor must be licensed in the state they are working in, and they cannot use another company's license. If they claim they cannot afford a license or insurance, they are not the company to use. In the event of a disaster, you will have no legal recourse to rectify the situation, and there will be no one to hold accountable for your hardship.
Be wary of these warning signs:
1. Large amounts of money asked for up-front.
2. A contractor who does not list their license numbers on their vehicles, estimates, or advertising.
3. A contractor who rushed you to make a decision in order to take advantage of a 'special deal' or a limited-time offer.
4. One who does not write a detailed proposal and put's a low bottom-line price. If it looks too good, it probably is. You will have change orders galore and end up spending more money than the honest contractor who gave you a correct bid.
5. If you feel good about possibly hiring one contractor but he is charging more, then go back to him/her after obtaining all your bids and discuss the price again. You may find that the contractor can show you ways you may be able to save even more by redesigning your first bid.
