When choosing a licensed contractor for your next project make sure they provide you with a current copy of their contractor’s license, check the expiration date. Also ask them to provide a copy of their current insurance, be sure to look at the policy expiration column as these dates are sometimes different. We all know what happens if someone gets hurt on your property and they don’t have insurance, you’re responsible. Homeowner BEWARE!

We hope this helps.
