Three Great Reasons to Hire a Licensed Contractor

1. Experienced In order to obtain a license from the state, contractors are required to prove they have meet a minimum experience requirement.

2. Tested Before receiving a license, contractors have to pass a business management test and may have to pass a criminal background check.

3. Protected Ever heard the one about the contractor who took the money and didn't do the work? They probably weren't licensed, and the only legal recourse you have against an unlicensed contractor is to take them to court. If you can find them. When dealing with a licensed contractor, you can file complaints about incomplete or inferior work against their license. This is your guarantee that they won't just do the job; they will do it well. Maricopa County also has something called the Residential Contractors Recovery Fund, which protects homeowners from poor or incomplete work from licensed contractors by reimbursing them up to $30,000. It is worth noting that if you hire an unlicensed contractor, these RCRF benefits will not apply to you.
