Any building or remodeling job you are considering should never begin without proper research and documentation. Your general contractor should provide you with a contract that outlines your projects scope, deadlines, and payment schedules. They should also provide you with their proof of licensing and insurance before starting your project.

Licensing

It is vitally important that contractors are licensed to prove they have the required knowledge to properly perform their trade. Licensing laws vary from state to state and some cities and counties may require additional licenses. You will want to check the requirements for your location and verify that any contractors you are considering working with are properly licensed before you hire them. In our state you can search for Georgia business licenses on the Secretary of State’s website.

Insurance

Contractors must demonstrate proof of insurance as part of obtaining their trade license in a majority of states. You will want to be sure that your contractor’s general liability coverage (which covers damage to your home) also includes workers compensation coverage (which covers injuries their employees may suffer while on the job). At Atlanta Porch & Patio we carry over $1 million dollars in commercial general liability, automobile liability, and workers compensation coverage.
