I’m often asked by fellow professionals how to stay competitive with so-called “fly by night” businesses.
When business is slow, it common to hear numerous stories about unlicensed or uninsured contractors providing homeowners with estimates for work they need to have done. This is a great opportunity to educate our prospective customers about the value of licensing and insurance. Liability insurance protects the homeowner from any damage that might be done to their home during construction, and from builder negligence. Because we are working in their most valuable asset, they should know how they are protected from risk.
