Licensed Contractor V.S. Unlicensed Contractor

  • Does the licensed contractors have to pass a business management class in addition to possessing a minimum amount of experience?
  • Is the licensed contractor is subject to a criminal history background check in order to receive his license?
  • Are the contractors licensed, bonded, and pay into a residential recovery fund that protects homeowners and their property?
  • Does the contractors pay unemployment compensation insurance and liability insurance, which covers the possibility of injured workers on your property?

These are only a few examples of how the unlicensed contractor can under-bid your project by avoiding participating in these types of protection. Being unlicensed puts homeowners at extreme risk when performing work on their property, giving the homeowner no recourse when trouble arises on the job.
