What you need to know before hiring a contractor

We’ve all heard horror stories about homeowners hiring contractors to work on their home.  Only to find out that the contractor cut corners, did less than quality work, or didn’t complete the work that was promised in the written contract.

Don’t let this happen to you.  Make sure you hire a contractor who is in fact a licensed contractor.   Do not trust your contractor’s word, do your own homework.

In the state of NC a general contractors license is required to perform any work in which the total project exceeds $30,000.  Do not let a non licensed contractor talk you into pulling the permit for them.  This is a tricky way to circumvent the law and is illegal.  They may try to convince you that this will save you money, it will not.  The permitting fees are no different for you or them, so do not let them convince you that this will save you money.
