Properly Insured Company
A good ad or sales pitch at the time of estimate isn’t proof a contractor does quality work. Home improvement projects gone wrong can be very costly. This is why it is not only important to have a trained and experienced company working for you, but one with the proper insurance.
A properly insured company will provide you with a certificate of insurance that indicates 3 items before the work gets started:
To insure against damage that may occur to your property. Not only is proof of appropriate coverage important, but the limit of liability is equally important. Some companies will fail to provide the proper type of insurance, or will simply pick up the bare minimum for their limit of liability. (A limit of $1,000,000 is adequate.)
To insure against vehicles on and off your property.
It is not only the law to carry this for employees, but it’s a safeguard we can provide for you. In the unfortunate event that an accident occurs to our personnel you know your liability is covered. Some other companies fail to provide this in order to keep the exorbitant cost of insurance down and their job price low. (A limit of $1,000,000 is appropriate.)
If you want to know you are dealing with a reputable company then insist on these items! Furthermore, if a company uses subcontractors and salesmen, you will need to confirm that they are also properly insured, by. Reminder: SJ Waterproofing DOES NOT use Subcontractors.
