The Cost of not Hiring a Licensed Painting Contractor

Brad Stoner - Monday, June 03, 2013

Your decision to improve your home is not one that you have taken lightly. You know that you want to improve the curb appeal of your home in the fastest way possible, and you know that exterior paint is the sure fire way. 

Now it comes down to hiring your painting contractor in San Diego. 


Of course as with everything, budget is a factor when it comes to a big job like house painting. It might be tempting to skimp and go with the lowest price that is quoted, but beware. There is a hidden cost to cutting corners and not going with a licensed painting contractor that you might not know about.

You are Liable for Financial Harm

If you hire a contractor that isn’t licensed, bonded, and insured, it is likely that they don’t have worker’s compensation insurance. In the state of California, you can be held liable if they injure themselves on your property. You could find yourself stuck with handling thousands of dollars in medical bills because your homeowner’s insurance probably won’t cover the claim. A licensed painter comes with worker’s compensation and a legal entity that will shelter you from liability.

You are Susceptible to Job Abandonment

A person or company that hasn't spent the time or energy to get licensed probably isn't very professional. There have been countless instances of people paying contractors up front, buying supplies, and then having them disappear shortly after the job begins. In some instances, they even take the supplies with them. 

If your contractor was licensed, the licensing body would step in and make sure there were consequences for their actions. However, this is not so for an unlicensed contractor. You could find yourself having to pay for all new supplies and then hiring a professional anyway.

Skip all the drama and hire the best professional house painter in San Diego – Brad Stoner.  He can get the job done right and for the right price.
