Before You Hire A Contractor
Not everything is as it seems.
Unfortunately we receive a lot of feedback like this from residential customers and commercial clients alike. They want to believe what they are told by their contractor. A substantial part of our business is correcting faulty workmanship or replacing a contractor after a safety incident because that contractor was uncertified, uninsured or unlicensed.
More and more courts are nullifying “hold harmless agreements” and are exposing business and home owners to litigation. Before you hire a contractor, there are some very important questions you may want to ask:
- Is your contractor licensed for commercial or residential construction?
- Is your contractor OSHA certified and have they recently been cited for OSHA violations?
- Does your contractor inspect job sites for safety, hold employees and supervisors accountable, train new employees in safety and provide their safety program in writing?
- Can your contractor produce certificates of insurance directly from the insurance company itself?
- What is the contractor’s safety record? Is your contractor based in your community? What is their reputation in your community?
