If you are planning to renovate your home or add some beautiful hardwood floors, it is essential you hire a professional and reputable contractor. Any contractor you hire should be fully insured and licensed to ensure high-quality flooring installation. Deciding on a contractor can be confusing. There are some things to be aware of before hiring someone to perform work on your home to prevent substandard work. Here are a few reasons why hiring a professional, insured contractor is important.
Why Licensing is Important
In order to legally carry out any home improvement work on your home in the state of Maryland, your contractor must be licensed to do so. This license protects you and your home in the event of an accident or mishap during renovations. The Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC) will investigate any complaint filed by the homeowner and prosecute those contractors who violate home improvement laws. You could be awarded monetary damages against the contractor. The fund can also reimburse homeowners due to poor quality or a failure to fulfill a home improvement contract. Because this only applies to work done by a licensed contractor, any contractor you work with must be properly licensed.
Why Insurance is Important
Just like the MHIC, proper insurance protects you from any work-related damages. Professional contractors carry liability insurance for every job they do. Unfortunately, many things can and do go wrong during home renovations at no fault of your own. Contractors are insured so that any claims filed are shifted from your personal insurance to their general liability insurance instead. Hiring a contractor with no insurance can leave you stuck with the bill if something goes wrong during the project.
