Many clients ask for contractor referrals after we inspect their homes. Home inspection Authority is not a general contractor service as we do not perform repairs. We highly recommend contacting qualified licensed professionals for costs of repairs or replacement of systems to get accurate information on costs. We have made a list of contractors we are familiar with for your convenience.
You can also Google or Yelp specific contractors in your area for more options. We recommend you get at least 3 quotes from 3 separate licensed contractors per repair. We do not recommend any repairs be done by a handyman or unlicensed contractors.
In California, anyone who contracts to perform work on a project that is valued at $500 or more for combined labor and materials costs must hold a current, valid license from (CSLB) California State License Board. You can verify the license or call (800) 321-CSLB (2752). https://www.cslb.ca.gov/onlineservices/checklicenseII/checklicense.aspx
Be advised that unlicensed individuals pose a risk to you and your family’s financial security if a worker is injured while on your property, your property is damaged, or if the work is incomplete and/or faulty. Few, if any, unlicensed individuals have a bond or workers’ compensation insurance. The quality of their work usually doesn’t compare to that of a licensed contractor. Don’t take the chance in order to save a few dollars. You’ll probably end up paying more in the long run.
Home Inspection Authority does not and cannot guarantee or warranty the performance of 3rd party contractor services. We highly recommend asking for references and contractor license’s from multiple contractors in order to determine which contractor and or service is best for your needs prior to having any service performed.
