Services Performed: License Procurement
Brief Explanation

Getting a license to paint is a big deal.  We just reconfigured our license and it got me thinking about why licensing in a trade such as painting is important.

Painting Licenses Help Filter Out The Bad Guys

Although there are many painters that offer high-quality work without being licensed (we were that, once upon a time) the vast majority of sub-standard paint jobs come from unlicensed painters and painting companies. These folks just don't care enough to do the work and pay the fees to get a license that indicates you are at least on the state's radar.

Now, as I said, not all unlicensed painters are necessarily bad. However, a few years ago Utah made it illegal to do any type of contract work on homes without being licensed. They recognized that with the growth and constant construction in the state, all contractors should be minimally regulated. And so we are.

Besides helping to filter the poor-quality painters, licensing also helps to filter out the con artists that prey upon so many. There are many scams going around and painting is not immune—yet another reason not to pay everything up front unless you are working with a reputable company that has a great reputation.

By paying attention to these indicators, you can protect yourself, family and home from people who could be terrible painters at the least and potentially serious crooks.

Insured? Yes we are.

Another factor in licensing is that most unlicensed painters are also not insured. We are. What this means to you is that when someone gets injured, our insurance covers it.

Whether we are talking about worker's compensation insurance which covers wages as well as medical expenses or our general insurance which also covers property damage in case something adverse happens, insurance can separate the wheat from the chaff as it were.

When you are considering a painter, or any other contractor for that matter, make sure you are protected by knowing their license and insurance!

Our workers comp and general liability insurance number is Z74900.
