Choosing a construction company to perform your renovation or construction needs can seem overwhelming.
Price and quality are often top of the requirement list.
Reference and reviews can go a long way in helping you make a choice as well.

However, finding a qualified and certified general contractor is vastly important. The expertise of a general contractor who has taken the time to become licensed and insured should never be overlooked.


Important things to remember:


  • Mistakes and accidents can happen
  • Having the protection of a licensed and insured company is imperative for such situations

Clients should always ask for a certificate of liability from anyone who does work on their home. This certificate should name the homeowner as the insured customer, and the limits should be high enough to cover the cost to replace the entire home (not just the cost of the project that’s being done). That way a client knows they are protected in the event damage is done to their existing property. For example, if a contractor was to leave a battery charging overnight, and the battery or charger was to catch fire, causing the entire home to burn down, the contractor’s liability insurance would cover the cost of those damages, as well as replacement cost for the clients belongings. If a contractor does not have proper insurance, a client would be left to battle with their own homeowner’s policy holder, and they may or may not cover those losses.

What does it mean to be licensed, insured and bonded?

It means the company has taken the steps to become a licensed business.

They have taken out liability insurance and made payments to a surety company for protection. Liability insurance protects you, your family and your home from personal injuries or property damage.

In other words, the contracting company you have hired are accountable for any damages that could occur under their guidance.

Licensed contractors have been trained to understand and meet all requirements set by the city council and federal government. They will pull the required permits for each project and schedule inspections to make sure your home meets and passes all safety examinations. Having the correct permits is invaluable when it’s time to sell your home.

When a client hires a licensed general contractor, they can be assured that the GC has a deep understanding of all building codes and requirements. Unlicensed contractors would not be able to pull permits, so a client would be at their own risk when hiring these potentially unqualified people.
