Sometimes it’s hard to know if a licensed contractor is the best way to go when tackling a project. Anyone can distribute business cards and place an ad in the yellow pages, but just because they do doesn’t mean they are licensed. When starting a project, it’s easy to get caught up in looking for the lowest price and quickest timeline. Instead, expect that the price will be good, but not the lowest; also expect that because they are well regarded and busy, they won’t be able to start the work for a couple of weeks.Most importantly, check to see if the contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured. BBB.org is a good resource for reviews, but not the only resource that should be payed attention to.
Contractors cannot obtain a license without experience and passing a business management test. They also have a criminal background check. Licensed contractors are also insured, which provides further protection for you and the property you have being worked on.
Each state has a website you can check or a phone number you can call to see if your contractor is licensed.

If you experience problems with your licensed contractor, you have up to two years to file a complaint to make sure the problem has been fixed. This is your guarantee should the workmanship be below standard or in violation of existing codes.
