WHY HIRE A LICENSED CONTRACTOR
A licensed contractor has the training and experience necessary to obtain a contractor's license. The State of Hawaii, Contractors License Board has checked into the contractor's background and is satisfied that the person is qualified to hold a contractor's license.
Licensed contractors have worker's compensation and liability insurance. This protects you as a homeowner from putting your property at risk if anyone is injured on your project or if anything is damaged while the work is being done.
If anything goes wrong with your home improvement project, the Contractors Recovery Fund is available to you only if you have hired a licensed contractor.
You can check the background of a licensed contractor by calling RCAH at 587-1224.
