Licensing requirements for patio contractors vary from state to state. Some states require licensing while others require registration.
Licensing involves a process of passing exams and also meeting specific criteria in order to prove competency in a trade or range of trades.
Registration, on the other hand, is a written record of who is performing the work. Registration does not guarantee that that person or company is either an expert or competent in the trade.
When searching for the right company to build a patio for your home it is essential to ensure that the team you are entrusting to work on your property are fully licensed and meet the state requirements.
Here are three steps to help you choose a fully licensed and reputable patio cover company.
- Find out state licensing requirements: Before selecting a contractor you should find out the licensing requirements for your state. If you don’t know the requirements and employ an unlicensed company you could face fines, or even worse create a dangerous situation at your home.
- Find out if the company is fully licensed: With a licensed contractor you know that the team working on your home are fully trained and able to complete the job safely, to state required specifications.
- Check for complaints: As a consumer you have the right to check to see if the company you are planning on hiring has ever had any complaints filed against them.
