Why You Should Hire a Licensed and Bonded Crawlspace Waterproofing Contractor
Many homeowners know the importance of checking the credentials of the contractor they hire for crawlspace waterproofing. However, many do not take the time to verify the contractor’s credentials. They often end up working with a contractor that is neither licensed nor bonded.
It is worth taking the time to do your due diligence when hiring a crawlspace waterproofing contractor. Licensed and bonded contractors are:
- Easy to work with
You can be confident that you are working with a professional of good repute. Contractors that are not bonded or licensed are often dishonest. They can leave you in a fix. With a reputable contractor, you can be sure:
- They will meet their project deadlines
- They will use high-quality materials for the job and therefore provide you with great results for a long time
- They will ensure that their work is maintained over time. Many provide warranties for their work that you can take advantage of to ensure your crawlspace system is well maintained.
A licensed and bonded contractor will follow up with you to ensure that their work meets your satisfaction. If they detect issues, they will resolve them to prevent future problems.
It is important to hire a contractor that is insured. This not only shows that the contractor is one that is responsible but also gives you peace of mind. With an insured contractor, you will not be held liable in case of an accident on your property while the work is being done.
The contractor you hire should have insurance cover for:
- Personal liability – The contractor will be liable for any damage that occurs on your property while the work is underway. If they do not have this cover, you will be liable for the damage.
- Workers’ compensation – The contractor will be liable for any injuries that their workmen may get while they work on your project. This includes cover for medical expenses and lost income amongst other damages. If the contractor does not have this cover, you will be held liable for these damages.
- Not putting you at risk legally or financially
With a licensed and bonded contractor, you will be protected from both legal and financial risks. You will not be breaking the law by hiring a contractor that is unlicensed. You will also have the financial security of knowing the contractor must finish their job or pay.
