Insurance Against Fraud

Trust is one of the most important factors in picking a service, product or company to do business with. We understand this, and being a licensed and insured contractor is just one of the many steps we take to provide our clients with a product they can be happy with. Being a registered business informs our clients of the care and commitment we take in our work, sending our teams to your properties with a “no-hassle” and “worry-free” state of mind, knowing that our employees are insured no matter what happens on the property. Hiring unlicensed contractors can sometimes prove too expensive, and at times illegal depending on state, and city laws. With unlicensed contractors you can possibly run the risk of expensive fixes, unguaranteed warranty work, and lawsuits. We believe it is important to stand behind the work we perform, which is why we protect our clients being licensed and insured, to give them comfort in knowing they are being taken of.
