What is Insurance?
General liability insurance (GL) protects the homeowner from bodily injury, property damage or personal injury. In the event there would be damage or loss to a home or structure due to a contractor’s negligence, your homeowners property insurance won’t likely cover the damage. Most policies explicitly exclude damages caused by contractors. It would be necessary for the contractor’s general liability insurance to cover this damage. If the contractor is not insured, you are at risk.
What is a contractor’s bond?
Bonding protects our friends and family if for some reason TRUHOMES fails to complete a job, doesn’t pay for permits, or fails to meet other financial obligations, such as paying for supplies or subcontractors or covering damage that workers cause to your property. Reliable and Trustworthy companies pay a premium to a surety company to be bonded. All of our estimates / contracts included a provided bond number and certification, through which you can confirm that TRUHOMES is properly bonded. In addition, you can contact the surety company directly if work isn’t completed or you believe it’s subpar.
REMEMBER it’s important to do your research before you hire a contractor!!!
There have been instances where individuals or companies claim to be “licensed” and insured however in reality they are not. It is only after an incident occurs in your residence is when you find out that they do not have a business license, nor are they registered to do home improvement work in your state. To make matters worse they leave you stranded with an unfinished job, a damaged home, and you have to track them down on your own because in the majority of cases it is civil, not criminal offenses. If they were not registered they most likely did not have insurance as well. In some case contractors are registered but don’t purchase insurance to protect not only their clients but themselves. Why? We don’t know. While the license is issued by the state, the insurance is backed by an insurance carrier. Contact information for verification purposes is listed on the insurance certificate, as is the expiration date of the policy. Asking to see the license and certificates of insurance is your best protection. Reputable companies like TruHomes LLC. are happy to provide proof of adherence to laws and regulations designed to protect both you and them. Contractors that cut corners on licensing and insurance and put that risk on you are much more likely to cut corners when working at your home.
