Should I hire a licensed contractor?

It is recommended in most cases to use the services of a qualified professional. Licensed individuals must be bonded and provide their own workers compensation and liability insurance. This could potentially be a burden for a homeowner not normally covered for these types of exposure. It is recommended that you contact your insurance agent and review your coverage before taking on a project. See the Contractor page for more details.
