At K&B Communications we are licensed through the Nevada State Contractor's Board. So We understand the importance of using a company that is licensed.
A contractor is accredited, it means they have a valid claim to be an industry expert. They make a legitimate career out of this trade, and not just make it a hobby. If a contractor holds a license, it shows that the certificate has been obtained by some industry requirements and that they must meet certain requirements to retain their license.
Here are a few reasons why your company should hire a contractor who is licensed:
A Licensed Contractor must have insurance: All contractors are required to have liability and worker’s compensation to maintain their licenses. It is important that the company you decide to hires has this because if they do not the owner of the building could be liable if an incident occurred.
A licensed Contractor must follow all regulations by the city and the federal government: A Licensed contractor has been trained and passed exams provided from the contractor's board.
A licensed Contractor must be bonded: A bond is to protect the customer, back in history companies would get by with taking a client's money and not actually doing the work. A bond is so the contractor will accomplish the work that has been said to be completed.
