Before you hire anyone to work on your project, check to ensure that they are properly licensed.
Because unlicensed contractors lack accountability, proper insurance, and have a high rate of involvement in construction scams.
How big of a problem is this?
Unlicensed contracting is part of California’s estimated annual $60 to $140 billion dollar underground economy.
It is illegal for an unlicensed person to perform contracting work on any project valued at $500 or more in labor and materials.
Report unlicensed activity to the State Licensing Board.
