Why You Should Use A Licensed Rain Gutter Contractor
City Seamless Rain Gutter Company has been in the Seamless Gutter Industry for decades.
Started in 1976 (under a sole-proprietorship), City Seamless has expanded and involved dozens of new friends and family members to become what it is today.
Part of what makes City Seamless successful and trustworthy is that our company carries all of the necessary licenses and insurance policies to ensure that you, the homeowner, is protected.
A few of the reasons you want to choose a Licensed Rain Gutter Contractor are as follows:
1. Licensed Contractors are required to carry general liability insurance and workers compensation.
These two policies will protect you in case of any accidents that may occur on your property or worse, on the employees way home from your property. That's correct! You could be held liable for an accident incurred by the employee of an unlicensed contractor after he leaves your house. Insurance companies and attorneys are always looking for reasons to come after anyone they can--and hiring a licensed contractor who carries all of the proper insurance certificates will protect you from any crazy lawsuits that may occur during your rain gutter installation.
2. Licensed Contractors are easy to find and are required by law to offer a guarantee of their workmanship for different periods of time (depending on which state you reside in).
It's very easy to find Rain Gutter Contractors, by simply searching on the state contractor board website of the state you live in. And should you have any real issues, you can always file a complaint with said board in order to ensure that your original contractor either repairs or reimburses the repair. The State Contractor's Board helps to protect the consumer. Yet if you hire an unlicensed contractor, then you lose out on this key piece of protection.
3. Licensed Contractors have paid their dues.
It's impossible to become a licensed contractor without having the necessary experience and to have passed rigorous exams which challenge the contractors working knowledge of the trade he or she engages in. When you hire a licensed rain gutter contractor to perform your rain gutter installation, you can be certain you are getting someone who is well versed in many aspects of construction and who is held to a higher standard.
4. Licensed Contractors care about the community they do work in.
Becoming licensed is expensive. And staying licensed is also expensive. Companies who perform work without becoming licensed contractors are cheating the community they live in by putting homeowners and citizens at risk. They also risk the health and safety of their employees because they do not and cannot carry workers compensation insurance, which is a very important protection for employees as they risk their safety to install rain gutters on your home. And, unlicensed contractors put you at risk as well, because if one of their employees gets hurt on the job, most likely you will be held liable for their medical and hospital bills.
You can easily find out if you're dealing with a company who is licensed or not by simply asking for their license number or googling their company name. If you can't find them on the web, or if they tell you that they do not know their license number, then do yourself and the rest of us a favor and Kindly ask them to leave. You don't want to deal with a company like that. For the protection of yourself and the community.
