Hiring a contractor to do work on your home is a very big decision. It is important to hire a contractor who is both licensed and bonded. If you hire an unlicensed contractor, you are taking significant risks.
Some of the risks include:
No coverage under home owner’s policy.
Unlicensed usually means uninsured.
Non-compliance with building codes
Poor quality work
Limited recourse for broken contracts
Being bonded is different from being licensed. When a contractor is bonded, this means he has purchased a surety bond. This is a type of insurance policy that protects a property owner. The bond provides a certain amount of liability protection and if the contractor fails to complete a job as required or contracted, the bond can give compensation to a property owner.
