Hiring a properly licensed contractor, for any job, in your homeowners association is important. Those contractors without proper licenses and insurance leave you vulnerable to unnecessary risks. We’ve noted some of the most important things to consider when hiring a contractor below.
It would be unwise to select a non-licensed contractor due to many legal concerns including, but not limited to: lack of insurance, liability for injuries to others, no coverage under homeowner’s policy, and non-compliance with building codes. With that being said, it is a much safer route to just hire a licensed contractor to avoid the possible setbacks that might entail with a non-licensed one.
Not Professional or Known in the Community
Most non-licensed contractors are not well known as opposed to licensed contractors who likely have references and reviews. A non-licensed contractor may have poor qualifications and poor quality work due to lack of training. Most licensed contractors are easy to find on the web and you can read testimonies about the work they’ve done.
Clues They’re Not Licensed
There are many ways to tell if a contractor you are considering for hire is licensed or not. Here are a few quick ways to find out;
- They claim to be ”licensed and insured“ but cannot produce a license
- Want all or most of the money up front
- Want check written to them individually and not the business
- No written contracts
