What You Should Know

Joe is a licensed, insured and bonded painting contractor. What does this mean? It means he is a true professional and pays the extra money needed to make sure you are protected should anything ever go wrong.

Many people are cutting corners in this current economy and going for “the cheapest bid”, but what they don’t realize is most of the “cheap guys” out there are often working illegally. Should something go wrong, you have no recourse. When dealing with a licensed contractor you can get assistance from the California State Contractor’s Board and you can rest at ease that there is insurance to cover any liabilities.

If that’s not enough, how about the fact that YOU could be found at fault if you use an unlicensed contractor? Please, if you’re considering hiring a painting contractor, take the time to learn more about what you should look for.
