What to Look for in Your Foundation Contractor
There are a lot of companies that offer foundation repair and foundation replacement in Los Angeles … so how do you know which foundation contractor is right for you?
Before you hire any foundation company, it’s important that you do your research – this could save you big bucks and prevent a lot of hassle and headaches down the road.
Here’s what to check for before hiring a foundation contractor:
Licenses: Does this company have the necessary licenses to perform the work? A foundation contractor should have a General Contractor’s License (B) and a C-8 license for concrete work.
Workers Compensation Insurance: Contractor’s are required by law to carry Workers Compensation Insurance. Make sure the company you choose has this insurance in place.
License Bond: Contractors are required by law to carry License Bonds for their licenses.
In addition to making sure the foundation company has the aforementioned licenses and insurances, it’s also helpful to explore their website for more information about the work they do, their blog page to learn more about their expertise, and their customer testimonials on social media and on platforms like Yelp and Google to see what past customers have said about their work.
Doing the following will give you a better sense of the company’s services and help you pick the very best foundation contractor for your needs.
