Why Should Your Contractors Be Licensed and Insured?

Most of us could probably use some quality pressure washing somewhere around our property. When purchasing any product or service, it makes sense to look for the best deal possible. If you are shopping around for a new pressure washing contractor, getting the best quality service possible at a reasonable price is probably your goal. With this in mind, you should understand the value that a licensed and insured contractor can bring you. I’m sure you’ve asked yourself at one point or another why should your contractors be licensed and insured? Well here’s why.

Accidental Damages Covered

The risk of any contractor accidentally damaging your property is always present, however, if this were to happen with an uninsured contractor, you would be financially responsible for covering all damages. It could potentially cost you thousands of dollars in repairs, or even more if you decide to file a lawsuit against the contractor.

What if a worker is injured on your property? In that case, there is a chance that you would be liable as well. Alternatively, a licensed and insured contractor has their own policy in place to cover damages in the event that either of these scenarios take place. Ultimately, hiring an insured contractor is a safe way to make sure your simple bill doesn’t turn into a massive one.

Am I Working with a Legitimate Contractor?

Before you enlist the services of any contractor, you should do a little research to confirm their legitimacy. Here are a few tips to help you do so:

  • Avoid any contractor who says that insurance isn’t needed for a specific type of job. It may not be required, but you want to make sure your best interests are protected regardless.
  • Ask your contractor for insurance references beforehand. If they’re unable to provide them, it’s probably best to continue your search.
  • Read some client testimonials. You’ll want to find a contractor that has a thorough record of receiving positive reviews before trusting them to work on your property.
