Questions To Ask Your Crawl Space Contractor

ProfessionalsIf you are in need of having your crawl space cleaned or restored to a good condition, you will probably want to hire a professional crawl space contractor that you can trust to do a good job with crawl space restoration in Portland. However, when it comes to hiring a good, trusted contractor to clean your crawl space, you may have doubts. There are many scam artists out there who will gladly take your personal information and use it for nefarious purposes. If you have concerns about hiring a contractor to work on your crawl space, keep the following questions handy. While they are not full proof, they are a good start to ensuring you get a contractor you can rely on.

Licensing

The contractor you choose should be a licensed one. An unlicensed contractor, though perhaps not operating illegally in certain states that do not require a license, is unreliable when compared to a licensed one. A license should be displayed in the company’s home office, and you should have access if you ask for it. Most contractors will display the license proudly upon request. A license guarantees that the contractor is experienced, trained, and up-to-date in all areas of their expertise. Do not risk inexperience with your crawl space by hiring an unlicensed contractor.

Insurance

Worker’s comp and liability insurance should be included when you hire a professional contractor to work on your crawl space. These insurance plans will protect you in the event of an unforeseeable circumstance. If a worker is injured on the job, you will not then be on the hook for rising medical bills. If damages occur in your home, the liability insurance will cover the damages so you will not have to worry about costly repairs. In any construction case, it is important for the contractor to be insured. As crawl spaces that have problems can cause significant damage to your home, a crawl space contractor should especially have insurance to cover any issues.

Age of Company

The company you target should be at least five years old. That means that the company is established and is far more likely to be around if you require any repairs or need any warranties honored in the future. A company that has been around less than five years is less likely to stay around, as they have not had the time to develop and establish themselves in the community and the surrounding areas. If in doubt, check how long the company has been around and go from there.
