Hiring a Plumber Tips

Are you thinking about hiring a plumber or electrician? Here are 10 tips you should consider when you hire a contractor. These tips are provided by the California Contractors State Licensing Board, (CLSB).

Make Sure your Contractor Measures Up!

  1. Hire only state-licensed contractors.
  2. Check a contractor’s license number online at www.cslb.ca.gov or by calling (800) 321-CSLB (2752).
  3. Get at least 3 bids
  4. Get three references from each bidder and review past work in person.
  5. Make sure all project expectations are in writing and only sign the contract if you completely understand the terms.
  6. Confirm that the contractor has workers’ compensation insurance for employees.
  7. Never pay more than 10% down or $1,000, whichever is less. Don’t pay in cash.
  8. Don’t let payments get ahead of the work.
  9. Keep a job file of all papers relating to your project, including all payments.
  10. Don’t make the final payment until you’re satisfied with the job.
